From Malovista, the trail ascents to the church of Holy Salvation. The hiking is followed by unforgettable overviews and sceneries of National Park Pelister’s forests, slopes, peaks, rivers, perfectly green meadows, “colored” in black and brown by famous Malovista horses. Since the ascent of the trail enters only one forest, the blues of the sky are constant hiking companion and energizer.

From Holy Salvation, which is the sanctuary with highest location in Republic of Macedonia (2.000 masl), via Chun and Kodro passages, the trail starts to descend to church St. Ana, where, in the calmness of the deep beech forest shadows, hikers re-gain their spirits and end the journey.
