Important: the trail from Klisura is currently extremely difficult to pass, due to fallen spruce trees.

During the winter, it is recommendable to use ice-axe and crampons. All routes to Eho hut in winter conditions should pass through the iron rope areas, respectively climbing down the Yumruka peak towards the hut (for guests arriving from Rozino, Klisura, and Vezhen hut), and the final climb of Kavladan peak's north side (for guests arriving from Ribaritsa, Chiflik, Hristo Danovo and Kozya Stena hut).
