LL Stiv, Ilinden and Pelister really heavy track over the rocks. The name of the trail is Rocky train - a very entertaining route up with, as the name telling, plenty of big rocks and boulders to clamber over. After exiting forest you can go to the view point - nice view on the surrounding area. Late trail leads over the rocks and you are passing peaks Stiv and Ilinden until last summit Pelister 2601 meters above sea level.
Pelister and surrounding also have historical background since on the whole area including Bitola city was part of Macedonian Front in World war I.
On the peaks, there is snow even in July, and in some places the new snow meets the old from previous years.
Additionally Pelister (Baba mountain) was known as home for the brown bear, the wolf and the lynx.
Very very cold mountain water. Highly recommended for refueling your water sources
Almost at the end of track.
