Ski Touring To Karanikola Peak



Best period

Late December to early April

Ski touring in Karanikola is something many people miss out on; from its outlook, it could seem as if it’s just a normal mountain full of snow. But something that people don’t know is that this sparkling and powdery snow can give a full advantage to one of the best skiing in this part of National Park Shar Mountain.

The skiing at first would have to be achieved by a peaceful touring up to the top, and then the ending would be pursued with a luscious ride down the mountain.

It’s like you’re free; you have no worries, and yet there is also no going back. Once you ski down this mountain, you will be running up just to do it again.

Truly, this mountain can do something not many people are able to experience, but those who know what graciousness can come from mountains like these will experience the joy.
