PELISTER ULTRA
50K


From the foot of the Pelister National Park and the place known as Big Meadow, Bitola's favorite excursion Place, your steep adventure begins! In this initial part, you meander through wooded paths surrounded by endemic Molika pines.
All the way to the place known as the Swallow's Stone, run along the historical trails from WW1. From there is one short but technically demanding up & down section leading to Jorgos Stone. You continue with a short but steep climb all the way to Upper Meadow. After a few steps, fast and winding descent to Palisnopje awaits you. Shortly afterward came the first serious torment.

Climb over a place called the French Hospitals that were there at WW1 all the way to the top of Pelister, the highest point of your adventure, 2 601 m! And now the endless descent begins! After Little Lake, follow the Red River steeply over the paths most often used by sheep, horses, and blueberry gatherers. Be careful of hidden stones and roots that are noticed in the last second. We didn’t accidentally call this part of the trail a “Roller Coaster”!
After the heroic end of the 1 500 m descent almost in the same minute, the trail takes you to Debel Rid !! And that means about 5 km long 1000 m uphill!
You can rarely find such a change of terrain in this area. However, this is PUTM and behind it are experienced organizers!

When you arrive at the mountain lodge "Dimitar Ilievski Murato" and one of the most striking attractions and natural beauties in North Macedonia - Big Lake, an indescribably magical descent awaits you along the French road from WW1 and Sapundzica River to a well-deserved finish!!
