Hiking Mount Gessi

Hiking Mount Gessi starts from Mugusu Valley through the ground forests to Roccato pass, which then continues through the thick brush and slabs. After which, it takes you to the ridge between the two peaks. These peaks were once covered with glaciers, but eventually melted way.

The ascent route used by Duke melted, and is now a series of horribly mossy steep slabs hence not recommended for Beginners hiking.
