Description

Leaving from the hizha, follow the green marked trail. After the first 200 meters, the climbing starts in earnest and does not really let up. You wind your way up thought the forest for the first 1 km, then the trail breaks out above the tree line. It continues to steepen as you approach a hanging valley at 1.7 km which gives you a brief respite. The trail continues up the headwall and into the above valley where you'll find the Kazana Shelter hidden between Vihren (2914 m) to the south and Kutelo (2908 m) to the north.
