    Almost all uphill one way and the reverse direction almost all downhill. a satisfying challenge and very scenic. Even an old small settlement of ruins but a fantastically preserved Church of Nicalos hiding in the forest.

    It snowed a few days before our hike, so we skipped one of the lakes due to it's slippery path. Other than that - perfect trail

    Picturesque trail through forest. Didn’t manage to reach any peak, though, since there was still snow in the end of April. Nice one, not very difficult.

    As the title says, this hike was quite adventurous and while I was hoping to struggle with finding a trail, it was actually impossible and the smaller pine trees just stopped me on my tracks, full stop. So this is the fi...

    Atmospheric forest. The highest point of the route is the stop of gondola lift - the view to Bansko and mountains. The way back starts with a bit slippery abrupt but short slope.

    3-8-2018. Απο το Μπάνσκο πήραμε τον δρόμο με λεωφορείο για το καταφύγιο Vihren. Το λεωφορείο σταμάτησε λίγο πριν το κατάλυμα Banderitsa σε parking που υπάρχει εκεί δίπλα σε camping. Ο ασφαλτόδρομος συνεχίζει μέχρι το κατ...
