We begin our journey towards Barackos (to the north). After ca.280m we leave the asphalt road to the right, towards Orogyik mountain.
A narrow carriages road goes between the small houses in the valley of Cokan - creek. The road climbs slowly, and we leave the residential area. In the environment we find more and more pine forest, the valley is more narrow, and the view more beautiful. Only a short distance is steep, the road is mostly horisontal. The fountain of the creek of Cokan in a small pit, where the crystal clear water is drinkable (1045m).
