On 12th November a team consisted of Македонец, Ehrlich91, Kiril Simeonovski и Petrovskyz headed towards Maleševo region, to conduct the 6th and last wikiexpedition for this year.

The first day ended with 7 villages visited and one touristic site called Ramna Reka near the springs of Bregalnica river with few waterfalls. On the next day, on 13th of November, members of the Wikiexpedition started from Aurora Resort towards the easternmost and all villages in southern and central part of Berovo Municipality visiting 5 villages and the centers of the towns of Berovo and Pehčevo where all of the notable objects and most important institutions were photographed.
