After a while you will reach a nice meadow when is easy to lose the trail. Keep left to the trail which goes throgh the forest and then keep again left to the next crossing. The route accends gently up to the summit when ruins of church can be found. The curch is an inviting place to take a rest and offers stunning views towards Dhembel and Lunxheri mountains.
