Join me in this 2-day hike in a beautiful mountainous region of Bulgaria. In particular, we will hike up to the Maliovitsa peak. 

This part of the Rila mountains is the cradle of Bulgarian alpinism. The characteristic points are mainly the high alpine peaks and the rocky walls. It all started in the 1930’s with the climb of the imposing north face of Maliovitsa. In fact, with its 2729m it is one of the highest and most beautiful peaks in Rila.

Standing on the summit you will have 360° views: the Rila monastery, the Pirin mountains and the rest of Rila.

Plus, on the second day we will go to the Strashno lake (2462m), below the towers of Kupenite.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.

What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).

What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.

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.
