Basic Information:
The trail is set in 1975 by a group of Macedonian mountaineers from the Mountaineering club “ELEMA” from Skopje. Over the years the Traverse has undergone some adjustments and the final version was set in 1982/83, and introduced in July 1985 with the passage of a group of thirty mountaineers of all 6 republics of ex-Yugoslavia.
The Western Macedonian Traverse is hiking trail that runs from Ljuboten to Ohrid. In its features it is the longest hiking trail in Macedonia, and is probably one of the more difficult hiking trails of this type in Europe.
WESTERN MACEDONIAN TRAVERSE passes across Western Macedonia through the arrays of Shar Planina, Rudoka, Vratsa, Bistra, and Stogovo through Karaorman to Ohrid, with a total length of 225 km.
Characteristic of the first half of the traverse, while passing through Shar mountain massif, is relatively high altitude, the lowest point is 2,100 meters above sea level. Also track passes through 5 mountain lakes, of total 15 Shar Mountain lakes that can be found at Shar mountain massif.
The second part of the traverse features with forest areas and fast mountain rivers which cascades down through the slopes forming countless waterfalls. Perhaps most interesting are the villages through which Traverse passes, Selce, Tresonce, Lazaropole and Gari with an abundance of old Macedonian architecture specific to this part of the Balkans. Traverse final spot is the town of Ohrid, with its numerous Byzantine churches, and beautiful Ohrid Lake. For this city are bound the first European university and the beginnings of Slavic literacy.

Accommodation on the last day of the traverse is at the Ohrid Scout camp.

We hope that this extraordinary Traverse will provoke interest to join us this summer in exploring the mix of natural beauties and cultural and historical landmarks of Macedonia.
