Going along the right bank of the creek Turytsya, we pass waterfalls “Solovey” and “Partyzan”, cross a few meadows and after 2.3 km go to the road fork and the merging of two streams. We are leaving to the left by an abandoned road leading to the North. We pass 0.9 km up the hill, cross to the left bank of the creek, at the point where two small streams merge. The next 300 metres we continue going in the north-east direction along the creek until the next streams merge .

After passing through dense thickets of young beech a spacious meadows, covered with thick grass and bushes, blueberries, cranberries suddenly opens in front of us. Everywhere on the plateau the stone “spots” covered with moss and lichen are towering . Coming out of the wood, we head to the Northwest to the highest point of the mountain.
