Guri i Zi is one of the prominent highpoints on the western side of Shkumbin valley. Its striking formation is only recognized from nearby. Views are exceptional, and when the weather is clear, one may have a glimpse of the Ohrid Lake from the summit.Tomorrit, Valamares, Mali i Thate and many more peaks can be easily made out.
In the lower reaches, the trail follows old wood roads, some of which are no longer passable to vehicles. Because of the secondary growth (following some heavy logging a few years ago) much of the trail is under the shade of trees, which makes it possible to climb the mountain even during the hot summer months.
The last few hundred altitude meter are over grassy slopes. These provide grazing for sheep, and you may plan your way so as not to come too close to the herd and the sheep dogs.
We also visited the secondary summit.
We gave it a moderate rating as orientation can be difficult until you reach the grassy slopes.
Note the hike is marked as a ballon hike. The total return trip from the camp to the two summits and back is 12.5 kilometers, and may take 5 hours.
Because of the long approach, it might be advisable to camp at the trailhead. For the approach, see trail # 3241472
