This three-day walk circles the peak of Vihren (2925m), the highest and the most majestic peak in the Pirin Mountains. It combines the possibility to admire the very peak from different spots and to pass the Koncheto saddle, the most famous narrow marble ridge in the Bulgarian Mountains as well.
Day 1: Walk from the hut Vihren to hut Yavorov traversing the narrow saddle of Koncheto. It is supported by metal ropes that helps the hikers and increases their safety.
Day 2: Walk from the hut of Yavorov to the Zagaza hut. This hut once was an old building but recently was transformed to a well-maintained and comfortable hut. In this way great new options have been opened for hiking in this amazing region.
Day 3: Walk from the Zagaza hut to the hut Vihren.
- Difficulty: It is a trail for advanced hikers. The length of the walk requires good shape and excellent head for heights. Nevertheless, the perfect panoramas make the walk pleasant and the time goes unnoticed.
- Accommodation: The huts are well-maintained; the hut-keepers offer food and beverages. The hut of Vihren and Yavorov are ones of the most frequently visited, so you need to book the beds in advance
- To/from the starting/finishing point: There are mini-buses that go twice a day from the town of Bansko to the hut Vihren.
- Security: The trail is totally secure. The most part of the trail is along well marked paths. There is a part in Day 3 that is not well marked but as it is along the River Vlahina t is easy for navigation. Nevertheless, we recommend using a navigation application on the mobile phone or a real GPS device. The area is served by the mountain rescue teams.
