    About the Guide

     
     

    I guide trekking groups, children’s camps, ascents in the Alps and ski groups in India. I have been traveling many times through the Nepali and Indian Himalayas and the mountains of Europe. I skied up and down Mera Peak, Larkye Peak and Saribung in Nepal, Grossglockner, Dome Des Ecrins and others. I also did numerous first descents in Bulgaria. I particularly enjoy off-piste skiing, climbing, alpinism and trekking. Please get in touch with me if you wish to travel in Bulgaria and live some unique outdoor adventure. It will be my pleasure to guide you here.
