Old wooden hut (The Shepard’s Second House), tents, a fire, coffee, and hot chocolate is what you will get in the first evening. Wait for the sunset and look up in the sky. The sky becomes dark really late. It seems that the sun reaches this place almost up to the midnight. However, when the stars finally appear, you will feel as if you were in the observatory. You can easily see our galaxy – the Milky Way. Stars and planets appear one by one, guarantying the cosmic sensation.
Next morning, you will have to leave at around 8am in the direction of the second camping location – Eagles View. The route is not tough. There are several hills. Ups and downs change each other so the route is not boring. The longest distance you might need to climb is only 200m (655 ft). There is plenty of fresh water on the way, so you will not need to carry large vessels. This makes your 20kg (44 lbs) luggage at least somewhat lighter.
At around 3pm you will arrive to the destination. Eagles View is located near the river. Huge relief after a long walk. Who would not want to refresh in the chilly water? The water temperature is only +5C (41 F), but this is an experience that you shouldn’t miss. The next morning starts early as well. This route is tougher than the previous one. You will mainly have to climb up surrounded by the piles of heavy stones. You will soon pass the Alpine Zone and reach a long path full of snow and ice. Two more mountains to pass and you will reach the “Promised Land”.
