    We did this hike on a hot September day and the conditions were very dry, in any other conditions I would only recommend expert hikers do it. Also, be warned there is a lot of bouldering at times and the only places to replenish water are at Vihren Hut and Banderitsa Chalet. At this time of year, the gondola only runs once a day - 8am up and 4.30 pm down.

    It's been ages since we hiked the entire Rila and Pirin Mountains for 2 weeks, but those were unforgettable experiences. Fast-moving mountains, sunburn during the day, scratching your tent early in the morning - everything is possible ...
    The hospitality of the people and the wonderful landscape remain an unforgettable memory. I have no idea what it looks like there now ... but back then you could hike for hours without meeting a soul. And if someone came, they talked - in Russian, English, or even just with hands and feet. 😁
    And then hitchhiking alone to the Black Sea, because the friends had a longer vacation, and I had to return by flight from Burgas ...
    There were consistently only positive experiences and only helpful and hospitable people. Is that still the case today ???
