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.

PLEASE NOTE that hiking on the glacier requires mountain experience and special equipment (crampons, ice ax, ropes etc.) Hiking in "very warm" weather during summer season can be dangerous because

The best time for hiking is usually from the end of May till the end of June, then September till the start of October. July and August are very hot and the glacier can melt very fast in the afternoon when the sun is out. It is necessary to start early in the morning to be sure you will get back down as soon as possible. However, it's pretty cold minus degrees throughout the year

Crowds

Due to the easy accessibility, the mountain is often a bit busy. The cable car is often very full of skiers. However, it's a perfect climb for beginners in such a height. To avoid crowds and the melting glaciers take the first cable car to the Kleinmatterhorn.

Hawk Mountain is known as one of the best places in northeastern North America to view the annual autumn hawk migration. There are 8 miles of trails over 1,400 acres.

For raptor migration viewing, visit in autumn. Each fall, 18,000 hawks, eagles, and falcons pass Hawk Mountain.

For general enjoyment of mountain views & trails, visit mid-week during your preferred season for hiking. Use caution at overlooks year-round but especially in icy conditions.

This was my first time visiting Falling Springs Falls along with my girlfriend and we absolutely loved it!!

Golden hour is the best time to visit about an hour before sunset and an hour after sunrise are great for photos because it's the best lighting. Mid day is great for those who wanna get wet during the summer under the falls.

They say it’s one of the best nighttime views in Japan. ‘A breathtaking 10 million dollar view’. 333 feet (101 m) from the city center, Mt.

The difference between visiting in the morning, evening or at night:

Morning until Afternoon: Least crowded. Especially in the morning, you can experience the view without many other tourists. Even without the beautiful night view, it’s still a great experience in daylight.

Twilight / Dusk: Right before dusk it usually gets more crowded. Even more after dark. Top tip: Be there just before dusk to experience the fascinating change from daylight to darkness, while the city lights turn on slowly. Check sunset times here: http://www.timeanddate.com/sun/j...

After Dusk / at Night: Usually crowded year-round from dusk till 10 PM. That’s the time when both the last bus or the last ropeway runs (operating from 9 AM to 10 PM). After 10 PM it thins out and you experience a much quieter place. Great experience around midnight. However, staying that late means you have to pay a taxi to get back down. Otherwise, you’d have to walk and navigate down in the dark. You could also get up there and back down with your own (rental) car.

Open year-round (maintenance closure early December). Consider that even in summer it’s windy and colder up there. Bring an extra sweater in spring/summer/fall and a thick coat in winter, when it’s really cold and chilly on top of Mt. Inasa.

In general, to avoid heavy crowds don’t go during the following very busy times in Japan:

End of Dec - Jan 4: New Year’s travelers
April 29 - May 5: Golden Week
July 19 through August: School summer vacation

Suilven is only 731 metres high, but its one of the finest mountains in Scotland. Its stunning views make it even more fascinating.

Year round, there is no specific time. ​You just have to see what she (Suilven) looks like in the morning when you get up: Great and climbable? :) She always seems to have a cloud hat on, even in the summer.
