The route begins in Chiragli village, located on the right bank of the Ganjachay river valley. Mount Goshgar is visible from all sides of the village. There is a monument to Javad Khan (the last khan of Ganja) at the top of the Javadkhan peak. The monument, unveiled in 2016, features a profile of Javad Khan with the coat of arms of Ganja, his sword and a spear-shaped iron fence symbolising his army. The majority of the route is a dirt road, while the rest is mountain paths. The paths are clearly visible everywhere and are fully marked. The initial 4.6km of the route is primarily uphill. After 1.5km from the upper exit of the village you come to a crossroads. Go straight here and after 3.1km you will come to a cemetery, where you need to turn left. The following 2km is relatively flat and the rest of the route is downhill until Chiragli village. The part of the route before the cemetery is mostly a sparsely forested area, while the rest consists of bare treeless areas.

Although Chiragli village is located in the Dashkasan region, it is only accessible by vehicle from the Goygol region.

It is also possible to hike this route the opposite way.
