Ski Touring To The Peak Golem Korab



Best period

Late December to early April

Willing to take on an offer like this is a miracle, especially when it comes to ski touring at the highest peak in Macedonia.

Here, you’re going to be enjoying the rest of the day while doing the most amazing activities you could dream of at Mount Korab. The touring up journey is obviously not as sweet as the ending ride at the end, but it surely has its part of the tour, and that part is magnificent. Everything you pass by in this nature full of powdery and sparkling snow is lovely, but what lies beneath is a treasuring glance.

Skiing down the highest peak in Macedonia definitely feels different, as it isn’t like anything else.

It’s longer and more expressive; you can feel as if you’re having a connection with the mountain, and nothing can get in the way now.

It’s ok to think that every mountain is the same or that every mountain is nothing special, but lying to yourself is not. And if you truly want to see the actual truth and pleasure that come from the mountains, this is something that can start that journey.
