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. Follow the signs from the information board. A little bit ahead the road splits in two and you need to take the road on the left. Then after a while the road for cars comes to an end and splits in two once again. This time you need to take the one on the right. After 1.6km from here go to the right of the hill in front of you and then head to the left. After 1.2km you need to pass over the hill, at the top of which there is an amazing view of the surroundings. However, it is also possible to go around the hill to the right. After 1.7km you will end up on a road for cars. You need to turn right here. You will then encounter an old cemetery along the way and here you need to turn right at the crossroads. 2.4km after the cemetery the road branches off to the left, but you need to continue straight here.

Overall, the part of the route before the cemetery primarily passes through a treeless open area followed by a sparsely forested area. The route is primarily downhill or relatively flat with only some short ascents in some parts. The final destination is Chiragli village, which is only accessible by vehicle from the Goygol region, even though it is in the Dashkasan region. 

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

Transportation

You can take either a bus or taxi to Togana village from the Goygol region bus station. Turn right at the crossroads by the restaurant “5 Ulduz” when you are heading towards Togana village after Hajikend village. After driving for 10km along a dirt road, you will reach the information board. The dirt road is only suitable for off-road vehicles. Therefore, it is advisable to take an off-road taxi from Goygol bus station unless you intend to walk the 10km part. It might be difficult to find one at the crossroads.
