Welcome to Bislimska Klisura, Kumanovo. It is another beautiful place in Macedonia, where you would find wonderful people, food and amazing landscapes.
To get there, you just have to go to Pchinja village, and once you reach that beautiful village, you can ask to the always welcoming people or just cross the bridge, which will send you to a parking just by the side of the river that runs through the canyon. And as a canyon, I have to say that it is one of the most beautiful ones that I have seen.
Once you have reached the parking, you have to walk up through a little hill and you will see the gates to Bislimska Klisura, where your outdoor travel starts!
If you decide just HIKING, you can surround the mountains, part of the hike is near the canyon, so the views are priceless. What’s more, the hike is totally peaceful, so there you are with the sound of the running water, the birds and from time to time, a refreshing gust wind. It is an easygoing hike, so it is well marked, the altitude you gain is not much and you gain it slowly, so you can keep focus on the wonders that Bislimska has there for you.
On the other hand, if you are passionate about CLIMBING, you will find yourself in front of no more and no less than 81 routes, divided in 4 sectors, whose levels go from 4 to 8a. So, no excuses not to go and have real fun for the day!, you have lot of routes to practice, enjoy and try as many times as you want. And at this time of the year, not just the weather is amazing, but it feels like you have all that place for yourself…
As you can see, the views are just amazing… not just when you get to the top, because they are that beautiful when you decide simply to take a walk trough the hike.
To conclude, for now…, for those people who love nature, to hike, to climb, to find some place where you can relax, to listen to the sound, to breath clean air or just have an outdoor moment, go and try this lovely and, at the same time, enjoyable place called Bislimska Klisura.
And DO NOT FORGET, don’t leave the garbage behind, let’s help all together to keep the places clean or, at least, the same way it was when we reached it. Be sustainable…
