Highlights

 
     

    Mount Musala (2,925m) is the biggest mountain in all of Bulgaria. Now whenever a person considers climbing a mountain that is the biggest in any country, they are most likely thinking about long, expert level expeditions. However, climbing to the top of Mount Musala does not entail a long expedition. In fact, this trip to the summit and back only takes 2 days!

    Furthermore, you don’t even need to be a climbing expert to climb this peak either, since the trek to the top is nothing more than a winter hike. With that said because this is a trek to the summit of a large mountain, you should be in good enough physical condition to do it. And previous hiking experience, particularly on mountains and in the winter, is a plus.

    Another great advantage of this trip is the starting point, the beautiful Borovets ski resort, which is only 1 hour away from the capital city of Sofia. Once we reach the resort, we will take a lift ride to an altitude of 2,400 metres. After that, you will have time to explore the area and enjoy the spectacular views before settling in for the night at the wonderful Ledeneto Ezero Chalet.

    After you wake up and enjoy a delicious morning meal, we will spend the day hiking to the summit of Mount Musala. From the summit, you will feel as if you can see the entire country of Bulgaria resting comfortably under a blanket of snow. Finally, after you’ve taken all the time, and pictures, you could from the summit, we will then make our way back down either by foot or the lift, depending on what you want to do.

    To climb the biggest mountain in Bulgaria in just 2 days on a scenic hike is a dream come true for anybody who loves scaling beautiful mountains. So if you would like to join me, all you have to do is send me a request.
