Places where various wonders of the natural can be found, like in the case of the Reka Region, are true and rare gems.   

The village of Bitushe can be reached taking a narrow and steep mountain road, passing through Rostushe. Few kilometres from there, in the dense forest, is hidden the glacial lake called Lokuv, one of the lowest-lying glacial lakes in Macedonia. This is an interesting site for a one-day visit, but also for camping and enjoying the amazing nature around. It is a true challenge for all nature aficionados.  

The hiking trail starts at the church of Ss. Cyril and Methodius, Skete of the Bigorski Monastery, which originally was intended to function as a summer school for religious education of Macedonian youth.

Undoubtedly, the massive rocks overlooking Krchin will take your breath away. An interesting fact is that ruins of an old church can be found precisely there. Another fun fact is that the entry of that old church is on Albanian territory, and the altar lies on Macedonian territory. According to the accounts of the monks, around eighty years ago, many believers would climb up the Krchin Mountain from both sides to celebrate jointly the big Christian holiday of the Feast of the Transfiguration at the top, 2,341 meters above sea level. As of 2016, on the initiative of the brotherhood from the Bigorski Monastery “St. John the Baptist”, the old tradition of visiting the church is reviving.

Unlike the trail to Krchin, the hiking trail leading to the glacial lake is not as steep and is much easier to climb. Lokuv, the final hiking destination, is the most famous of all glacial lakes on Deshat Mountain. While walking through the beech forest, you will probably be stunned by the surrounding mountains and the peaks dominating the sky.

After returning to the starting point, the Ss. Cyril and Methodius church, the bus will take you to the village of Rostushe. The trail that will take you to one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the country starts at the very entry to the village. The Duff Waterfall is 28 meters high, and it can be reached by an over a kilometre-long marked hiking trail. The trail will take you along the Rostushka River. Prepare to be amazed by the depth of the canyon, but also by the fresh mountain air offering true refreshment, especially in summer. The canyon ends in a massive rock split in two, through which water is gushing, a sight evoking nature’s ultimate power. When walking along the trail, here and there, you can see the breathtaking Bigorski Manastery from a perspective previously not seen by many.

At the end, a visit of the Bigorski Monastery and of the House of the Mijaks, restaurant and a living museum of the entire region, is also planned.

Note: Mavrovo is the starting point of the tour. The tour also includes organised ride to the village of Bitushe. The hiking trail starting from the church of Ss. Cyril and Methodius above the village of Bitushe, stretching all the way to Lokuv, is eight kilometres long in both ways. The trail from the village of Rostushe to the Duf Waterfall is two kilometres long in both ways.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia.

It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however.
