Route 8 daagse rondreis High Peaks of Bulgaria
South-western Bulgaria is dominated by two dramatic mountain ranges, the Pirin and the equally imposing Rila. We begin in the Pirin Mountains, trekking across glacial moraines and high passes, and attempting an ascent of Mt Vihren. Moving on to the Rila Mountains, we visit the Rila Monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We then cross the mountain range, through ancient forests to the glacial lakes for which these mountains are famed. We conclude by summiting Musala, the highest peak in south-eastern Europe, before returning to Sofia.
