Hi

Last night I returned from Germany. total was 10 days. With two friends.

Made 6 days and 3 days in RILA Pirin.

The currency ratio is 1 $ = 3 Note. Hostel in Sofia (dormatori) 20 head and heart in between 10-15 attention to head up to the cabin. Each cabin we had to. Eating in is admiring the cabin began dying some cabins waffle to meals of several courses. We went with food for breakfast for the Trek and 3 dinner and ate. (It is recommended to ask Bulgaria to serve the tea/hot soup is boiling because they have a tendency to serve it at a temperature of 40° c)

Carried with us a tent to keep the option to sleep where we want and we have used it for 4 nights. In principle each cabin we were the sheets and blankets so that is required depends on how many miles but the discerning istanist. The Pirin town us kind of monitor and advise us to fold the tent so as not to get a penalty (200) Greece claims camping is forbidden Pirin.

The Bulgarians encountered in most non-English things big.

We trekked six days a Barilla next track: Sun-borovetz-gel mousala cabin

B-mosala some after Granchar cabin

C-after the גראנצ'אר after Ribni Ezera Chalet

4-after esera ribani kiosk-aliovce

Thu-maliovce and Ivan Vazov

6-Ivan and Rila Monastery Moss

In Pirin 3 days we hiked as follows:

1-Bansko and iharn taxi cabin and a circular track with camping back in Bansko.

The maps contain the best trails easily available Street stalls/bookstores/souvenir shops also in Sofia and in the area of tourism (6). The maps in the scale of 1:50, 000 and has almost 100% which corresponds to the marking on the ground (there are very few new paths that do not appear on the map but it's so insignificant that I don't even remember where). The maps were left for my trip, so I don't remember exactly the colors they went but who cares can send OS and return with answers.

In lagov Grad spent the night among. Phoenix hotel close to Tel CBS and is excellent though a bit expensive (60 attention to room 101 with a huge patio for drying the tent and clothing. 50 attention to very good standard room)

In August, as far as I understand, there are an average of 9 days of rain. We had 4 days of rain in two days and seepage of them RILA days rain. In Pirin dropped us in the last couple of hours running. The weather also has the effect that a lot of the time was cloudy and it was possible to see the view. When there was light drizzle seemed charming scenery and lots of Lakes (in my opinion, an average of 5 Lakes) though small and because almost all the time going up or down band him undergo several growth belts from coniferous forests and Alpine desert

You'd better pay attention to the prices in Sofia. Each taxi on the window and note the great header followed the rate per mile. Most heart 0.6 per kilometer taxis but also has a 2.2-mile heart and came across another suckers us they found themselves suddenly pay 28 ($ 84) to drive-in town.

Shop for travel gear (including gas canisters flare) is called CTANETA and is located in a small street to the left (if heading back to Sveta ndlia Cathedral) STAMBOLIYSKI Boulevard

I'd like to share some of the knowledge I had with interested-send OS

Got back from two weeks in Bulgaria.
In the first week (RILA) was sunshine and great weather and trip the second week (Pirin) got into a storm and had to extend the runway a day (I just shorter distances every day and changed the planned).

The distances between the too short for my taste.

On the trip I only slept in huts and took the equipment.

The Rhodope Mountains gave although knowing is considered to be the most beautiful region in Bulgaria. Maybe another time.



Soon I'm going to review oikshbill.

Thanks to Assaf and Orna

So far I've been planning to do alpine pass route in Switzerland, the price is very expensive. I thought I would change and make 14 days in Bulgaria.

Any idea on the long term?

Without being in Bulgaria, I wanted to draw your attention to several of Cicerone called Walking in Bulgaria's National Parks.
He was released in January 2010, so I guess it's pretty up to date.

Hello everyone,

Plan to fly with a friend to Bulgaria for two weeks, flying in a month from now.

It is the only one that gives me a break from the army.

Anyway, he's planning a winter trip and snowy, challenging but possible,

A few questions:

1. does anyone traveling in Europe during the winter months and can tell if it's possible to hike, I almost no experience in snow but comes equipped with good thermal equipment, sleeping bag, good quality, in short everything except ...

2. crampons, ice axe-is worth renting (where?), or you may rent? And if shoes filled enough or have plastic boots

3. does anyone know specific routes in Bulgaria? Read up on the climb to the musalla and the oitusha, both sound nice, should go on routes in places lower and there is less snow,-

4. is it possible to sleep in a tent in European winter have good tent blue kazoo sleeping launched North's pace (think comfort-9)?

5 I'm not hooked on Bulgaria, if anyone have any recommendation for a beginner-friendly European destination and Pocket, I'd be more than happy to make recommendations and intentions.

And Lastly, we're two guys, if anyone wants to join the peak experience is welcome.

Happy to answers and guidance

Yoav

Hi Jason,

Some questions in return:

2. do you have experience with crampons and ice axe? You know what to do with them? If not I suggest you go on what you suggested, and make three runs.


4. it is certainly possible to sleep in the winter with a tent and sleeping bag, but it is very important the ground isolation (especially if there is snow).

I don't know you personally, Bulgaria, unfortunately, so I can't help you specifically.

I have no experience with crampons and ice axe, we had thought that is considered popular site and an experienced group might be able to join it and thereby learn the usage, or rent a guide to day/days and he will teach us. I don't think there will be a better place with snow so we can meet the challenge.

What about shoes? Need plastic or leather shoe boots _ a neoprene-like ASOLO TPS be

I have an inflatable mattress that provides quality insulation required to me.

Hey
If you are new to crampons and ice axe, I advise you to exercise a little and even on steep slopes easy to feel this much SELF ARREST. Better experience lower routes that usually are closer to civilization. And if you need help will be faster. Can handle any terrain and weather barrier. That much depends on experience. Use your heads all the time and don't take unnecessary risks. You don't need plastic boots. You're still not going on untniring. The problem I see is that the winter season will not just be a lot of routes for bikers to hand. I doubt you'll see any tracks. You probably need to navigate a lot and passim, if any, will be blocked with snow. In short ... You come here for a different adventure than a summer trip. It is better to come with experience in such conditions. Took ג'יפיאס and a panic button.

If you are not experienced in this type of trip, I go out alone (without an experienced local Guide), the tough and you don't know how to deal with emergency situations in these conditions!

A friend of mine returned from Germany two weeks ago after being stuck in the unmanned cabin (treks) two nights because of an unexpected Blizzard, temperatures reached 5 degrees, needless to say they didn't really enjoyed it.

Europe is a good destination for a walk in the winter too.

I guess most people travelling in winter doing Cross-country skiing
ג"כ commonly walk with snowshoes

My experience is there, which you can rent snowshoes (raquetas) everywhere.
Details you need to pay attention to them: 1. weather
2. the offences,
Regarding the second, in February, transitions (even in 2700 meters) enough snowshoes as soft snow, however in June that already most of the snow melted, these transitions will need crampons that snow layer is the layer that was jammed during the winter.

Incidentally, in the bikatot open in winter (the hot season it's about February-March but also in December can be opened) should see exactly what days and need to pre-order


In my opinion:
1. go to Baton Rouge for a trip with snowshoes and hire them (raquetas) in Europe, you can get them (depending on the type of snow.)
2. bikatot sleep (if better storm in the hut ...)

I ג"כ planning something for the winter in Europe, have formed specific information?

Thank you all for the advice
At the end we come out 3 people so it's safer.
Apparently there are a lot of good guys in Bulgaria that feed us information about equipment rentals, a place to sleep in their house and one even offered to get us to our first trip.
The soothing name aiikrim us that snow is common trips there only needs to be updated on the weather situation.
The exquisite sailing system.
I have questions:
1. pants-Gore-Tex or regular pants with nylon pants atoms above them, and this trip to go with thermal gatecs during the walk or only at night?

2. water-carrying water Or melting snow with the blowtorch? And if so, how water carrying

3. gas burner work in the cold? Or you have a nzinia? (Height of the highest peak in the itchy bottom).

4. ski gloves-bad experience good gloves but not synthetic fabric in my hands in Carpathian congeal Romania, is like taking gloves for skiing are the right solution to address or that you are sweating like a pig for them? What is the best option.

I would be happy to answer.
Thanks again for all your help, this forum have fun in our country.

Hi Yoav

Bulgaria slammed some last summer. If you search with site name gets a message with details about what I did. Of course, there was almost no snow in summertime. I do remember parts of the track were iron bars and high yellow can go upside down in the snow, but certainly not about each track and have to navigate.

1) judged most comfortable for walking in the snow everyday pants with Gore-Tex shoes and giiters (leggings). I have excellent craft thermal tights but I admit that I rarely wear it, however almost always hiking in snow outside was normal (plus 5). Given the expected (I appreciate the sight seeing, walking 5 +-daytime) worth to buy tights or pants and Gore-Tex trousers storm wear.

2) summer there were a lot of springs in Bulgaria and there was no need to carry more than a gallon. * They wouldn't carry more litres and at worst a miss.

3) I cooked with the blowtorch at a temperature of 15 and in the heights of over 5000. The only thing you need to consider it stealing a lot more gas and take much longer (I don't know if because the height or source). Phuket's got rocket MSR

4) I don't have a good answer for. I love gloves minutes to maintain traffic but whenever I've been in serious sight seeing with climbing gloves (a thin layer and them thickly gortaxit break separating)

Don't forget to write when you're back where you were and what you did + images, looks very interesting what you going to do?
