    Pelister is a must to see for mountain lovers. We started our climb from Brajchino, which is on the western side of the mountain. We were told that this climb is much longer than starting from Bitola. It took us over 12hrs for the round trip to Golemo Ezero and back. If we were to go all the way to the peak it would've been an additional 2hrs each way so we didn't go. Next time we would definitely go up from Bitola. Hotel Molika seems to be the place to go to for organized tours. For anyone planning to climb to Pelister, I would strongly recommend you go with a local guide as the trails can get pretty overgrown, and it's easy to stray off the marked trail.
