    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.

    Are you tempted by this 2-day hiking trip in Bulgaria? Then please contact me for more information! Furthermore, I lead other hiking trips in Bulgaria, including this one and this other one.

    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.
