Fauscoum Mountain walk Reviews

  • Hello! I visited this place in November 2021. There are few things that you have to consider before you visit this site : 1. Health condition 2. Vehicle 3. Warm clothes, preferably wind breaker Highly recommend bringing your own vehicle because there’s no public transportation. It is important to be physically healthy to visit this place. The wind was very strong. You have to hike approximately around 45 minutes from the parking lot. During the hike, the scenery was amazing. You will see a few sheep casually eating the grass! You have to be careful and watch your steps. The track was very rocky and steep. I highly recommend you to use a mountain shoes and a few layers of clothing. Enjoy!
