The trail starts in Lower Omalo from former telecommunication center with satellite dish. The down on the road, turn left just after the village.
The trail continues on the road. Keep on the road which moderately descends. There are several buildings on the right side, while remnants of the funicular to the Shenako side will be on the left. The road then descends more towards the forest. On the next crossroad we turn sharply to the left to the information desk.
Continue to keep on the road up to the sharp curve to the right. From the viewpoint here we could see so called Love Fortress on the opposite river bank as well as bezoar goats/chamois.

After the second rock field app. 100 m the terrain will rise, turn right up to the hill and keep climbing up, you will see the Love Fortress tower on the left, so climb there).
You return the same way back to the crossroad and then you can continue to Omalo or Shenako.
Keep the same direction up the hill, there is the road in the forest, it turns slightly right, then left, but keep on the road, do not turn away. After app. 500 m you will come to the small meadow, cross it and you will reach the car road [road Omalo – Shenako]

    The bridge is partly broken (july 2019) and doesn‘t seem safe. There is lots of rotten wood. I‘d recommend asking locals regarding the state of the bridge before heading down.

    I am sorry, I forgot to add this information. The bridge should be repaired this season (2019). We were about to accomplish it last year, but due to administrative reasons we were not allowed to cut necessary trees for the bridge.
