  • Stunning views over Lake Ohrid and Lake Prespa. We took the G6 trail which was clearly marked all the way, taking 2 hours up and 2 hours down - the signage was pretty accurate about the timings! We didn't spot much in the way of wildlife but the scenery was magnificent!
  • Excellent place... The view to Lake Ohrid and lake Prespa is magnificent
  • First class nature. One of the best sites for hiking, paragliding. And Ohrid lake needs no recommendation.
  • One of the more beautiful national parks in Macedonia, whether you are visiting in summer or winter, go and witness the natural beauty!
  • Highly recommended visiting if you're traveling around Macedonia. One of the most beautiful parks and national treasures you can visit.
