3. Since the day before yesterday I could not walk continueously in this section due to the hazardous heavy snow and ice road. This section is 16 km to the boundary of Sophia via the hills. This section is the first section in European course to be excluded from the original walking course. Then it is the second time since the first time happened in India due to safety issues.
Of course, this section is not included in my total walking distance.
