Falakro

There are a lot of forests on the mountain, contrary to its name. "Falakro" means "Bald". There are refuge and ski center on the mountain (1720m). The easiest way to reach the
peak is to start from ski center. It takes about two hours. The path is near "Hionotripa", a vertical cesspool 70 meters deep, which conserves snow for whole year. Reaching peak is possible any time, crampons are needed for winter

hiking.
