An estimated 10.000 people a year ascend the mountain, but outside the holiday season, there are no crowds. Not all try to reach the ultimate summit of Mytikas.
Mount Olympus, the mountain of the gods, is an impressive geographical hike, the maximum altitude is 2.917 meters, but it's only some kilometers from the Aegean Sea. Best season is from June until the end of September. In the spring the mountaintop is known for thunderstorms, hence the number of trees felled by lightning.
The Kozuf Mountain is located in the southern part of Macedonia (or FYROM). The best access to the base of the mountain is from the town of Gevgelija on the east.
The best time to safely visit the place would be from the beginning of May till the end of September. The snow should be melted by this time and the access road should be safer to move on. If you are planning to walk from Smrdliva Voda to the range it will be a two day trip - the distance is almost 20 km one way. Check the weather forecast before you go. The weather can change very quickly in the mountains.
