Easy circular ascent to the highest summit of the Pirin Mountains, following the red marks all the way. The trail up to the summit is perfectly marked, easy and very popular. The way down to Premkata saddle is not as widely used. It is a little steeper and there are chains and cables to help the progression. (pay attention to the beginning of the trail from the summit as I was confused by the fog and the first meters are off the trail!)
From Premkata to the little emergency shelter of Kazana is easier and has impressive views on the huge north walls of Mount Vihren.

Our initial plan was following the ridge to Konceto, but the weather conditions didnt allow it. Next time!
