Bulgaria trip summary August 2015

Evelyn and Aryeh Ben Porat

Went to Germany to month (7.3-7.4) pair 50 + in order to perform especially trekking, flew with Sofia is there ELAL both nights we went to Bansko by bus 5 days trekking in the Pirin mountains in Bansko and also night went away for six days in the Rila mountains back to Bansko by bus two nights accommodations (and washings) trip to kalofer through Plovdiv accommodation one night and three-day trek in the mountains of Central Balkan another night in kalofer and smolein trip via Plovdiv to excursions in the Rhodope Mountains 4 nights in total remaining time we decided to do a trek Added buses back Bansko Pirin via Plovdiv to Bansko and night trekking 4 days extra night in Bansko and a trip to Sofia for three nights and back to the terrible heat.

After the successful experience we can recommend warmly to target Bulgaria close comfortable and charming. Even the wonderful landscapes and people in great conditions always had clean sheets and hot water (except in one cabin was formed in showers), very reliable, and relatively large distances traveled quite a bit also rides very courteous people stop and help the only theme a little hard this lack of control them in English but of course work out in the end.

Bulgaria unbelievably cheap!! The trip cost us both all month $ 6,400 (no fly) and "tchlbano" settlements there is usually information rooms with shower WC cabins and ate a lot and beat-beers include further examples of costs.

Sophia and getting to Bansko

A flight of two hours and a half to ELAL landed at night, from a very comfortable ride on the Metro, 2 person heart, about half an hour and we go downtown at BARS from the train station 15 minutes walk to the hostel Mostel, lovely, young ordered in advance a private room in a shared apartment in apartment 5 d walk of the hostel, we got a nice room, great location, very close to the Centre and the famous Vitosha Street. We got up in the morning we ate breakfast in the hostel (the deal includes breakfast and dinner 30 arrow d) and went to arrangements: buying maps and gas money-ask at the hostel where They are very precise, and aides continued to free city tour which runs in front of the courthouse was easy and strongly leave tip writing course.

The next day after we took the tram number 5 – cost 1 person + lava lava an attention to the central bus station (note there is more than one!) of it comes close to all time, luckily we waited only about 15 minutes and went on the road for about three hours, stopping halfway stop for fifteen minutes, you can buy food and of course. Bus station in Bansko is situated on the edge of town which requires us to go about half an hour in moderate but with a lot of sweat (only later learned that really just hitchhike) to the charming family-run hotel SANTO FAMALY HOTEL highly recommended and great people of lava 32 d includes a modest but good breakfast (who comes to give us a dash).

We did a little tour and lunch "break beat" before the Trek was delicious.

The first day of Pirin-Yavorov hut 1740pass Predela

We got up at 6:00 we arranged breakfast with Marina 6:30 a.m., we were quick and we were off to the bus station on Highway 20 minute walk (not yet recorded the ability hitching J) we have to bus pass, Paradela, only after another driver is translated once fall wasn't taking us! A short drive to pass 16 km away. He took us right at the entrance to the track to note begins next Paradela. 7: beginning walk 2 miles on first then a dirt road and at some point in a single sharp ramp up further some tone almost all the increase in of the trees rope because I didn't see anything! Then in a surprising high vegetation with lots of flowering and still don't see anything, only when you get close enough to pass, and then begins the descent of the day as higher vegetation again, until the channel flows nice place duty to break away sharp turn toward the cabin and continue downhill until a dirt road you continue to go to notice of the way must turn and climbing in the trees until a single lodge iberov. Total hours: 30 hours today, when the light had long and weird not met people and talking with a counselor who met the following day, apparently people don't like the course and I certainly understand why is not easy and not enough reward.
Iberov great Lodge you can order food from the fragment has a hot shower and what else? Just that the place would be less sour:)

The Pirin. Vihren hut. 1975 Yavorov hut.
We knew
today was going to be long and not easy, but we didn't know how, planned in advance not to oirachn because it is a walk of 8-9 hours, the plan was to reach the lodge by friendly drica 6 hours time wrong in retrospect!
Only breakfast at 6:30 we restrict the port to give up to get the latest on six. I ordered an omelette and bread and packed up the road in seven went with quite a few people.
The track in the first part until you pass up pretty fast but also quite likely in less than three hours to reach quite high up, on the way passing through old cute little Lake cabin is very suitable for a short recess to pass a recovery detected by a large metal cross with 360-degree views.

Nice group of procedure with Germans who were with us at the cabin accompanied by a local guide we continue walking along the slope with a slight trend towards the Germans took an airstrip just onto the ridgeline looks more interesting and maybe easier at much later connected to the axis of movement really really beautiful here at some point, we saw quite a few hikers who go right on ridge line again but the Red check for us slightly down from the Ridge but began to be very troublesome to walk have insisted to continue that because Very clear markings in retrospect we realized that path is not passed out of use. Began to see the section with the pillars and metal cables and our gait became already impossible decided to cut upward carefully and go for the cable route along with all the Bulgarians took important! The following us, once you recognize the pages (called by the locals "THE HORSE) to go right for walking along beautiful and especially safer this section we took lots and lots of time and if that's not enough for the beginning of the descent began raining L, in principle it is better to continue walking on the ridge to continue climbing and drop him down to the saddle from which starts the last mountain climb Virgen. We went with the marks they left the cable moving in decline so easy on slick and hardly sympathetic silai reached the saddle and finally stopped for a coffee break, luckily the rain calmed down a bit too.

We decided to change the original intent was published in the ndrita Lodge meeting with Czech pair living in Bulgaria and ordered to stay away from her, we walked toward first hut Virgen drop pretty comfortable with clear paths to the hut. The rain never quit and transform us in the last half hour that part took about an hour and a half.

We reached the cabin packed full day travelers people await the rain chill out sell cold beers and snacks inside the monster can't breathe on the restaurant barely able to request accommodation room fortunately we got the last room which was a bungalow outside. Dishdshno between the happily, bungalows and corner bed have put thrash. Cute German couple we met in the restaurant that came with Air Berlin but without both of their cases yet went on a 12-day Trek RILA-Pirin in succession almost without equipment-congratulations.

Total for the day 8! NET hours isn't easy at all (and Thatcher friendly J 6 hours) a la Virgen with clean sheets, hot water shower, WC outside superb cuisine with a rich menu.

Pirin-third day Demianitza hut 1895 Vihren hut.

It was a bit cold at night so not recommend bungalow that overnight though. The agile and the seven were already in the dining room eating some of the food we were boxed into the track at the beginning was confusing to notice the map was wrong!! Highlighted that starts from the cabin with red but not green!! The first is with yellow and blue and only after about ten minutes, arrive at a bridge over the Gorge and it begins the climb route DNA initially moderately passes near several Lakes just a really nice the last part of the ascent to La Paz a little difficult with a pretty long snake path the scenery away from amazing here us 600 mm. and how can view without (long pause: with great coffee and in decline.

Again left two lakes and two right ones seen walking apas really easy and flowing. The fast path through the Woods takes us to far dominta walk today only 3:45, not to believe less time of friendly. Today we met quite a few people just Bulgarians, including a group of some 40 families they recommended 3 years together.
With cabin shower hot water and again received unfortunately but this bungalow costs getting there this weekend!! It is important to take into account, and for once the English a pancake is recommended and more yogurt with blueberries-home konfitorth yummy!

Summary of Pirin-Wednesday stay instead, rain day

The rain started and stayed to sleep later we got up and walked into the dining room to discover that everyone there, relax for 8 but remained overcast some visitors decide to stop the Trek, and set out to walk close to two and a half hours in the blue route Meanwhile reached a pair of Israeli students wet they turned out yesterday but there were close to trail only Virgen cabin 14:00!! Packed with heavy bags gone 7 hours!! And they couldn't get there is space only with sleeping bags and woke up in the morning to the pouring rain continued walking in the rain and came here with wet gear they were without portfolio covers or packaging is sealed for rain in them-lesson  Who understands will understand! Only after 2010 was a partial revival, the great Bulgarian team decided to go we preferred not to take unnecessary risks and we rested and ate a lot (perhaps too much even).

A summary Thursday-Pirin Bezbog hut hut-2237 Demianitza
Woke up early for a wonderful sunny day the fast we ate and we started at 7:10, the track climbs in moderation throughout the Valley and the river flowing below in blue and yellow with unobstructed and beautiful way to the height of 2250 mm reach and split with yellow check East towards La Paz. Walk a little more steep incline but with the Sun in his eyes that makes it difficult for the identification markings are adjacent to the stunning Lake with the island implied in it rising sharply from here, but a reasonable route to the PAS, 2.30 hours ntoalicha and coffee and managed long pause and start rising again for with beautiful views of several lakes and incredible rash that doesn't stop surprising us reaches a height of 2200. Hence my mistake in reading the map I sure have a track light and almost flat for basbog. But it's not like that, we started again with a long, but very convenient for 3 km until 2350 m high, with a crazy amount of day travelers who come especially to see the Lakes, a recent shoulder and then ngelt the cabin sits in all its glory on the amazing quick drop down of hours for today: 15, again less than friendly says at the cabin we had great soup toast and tea with honey for dessert great cable down there. 8 booth cost per person (it is also possible to descend on foot about two hours walk).

A fun ride on a cable car 30 minutes down trying to hitchhike there are lots of cars in the parking lot, mid-week less movement, and two local hikers and downloads offers us to go with him only in retrospect that took us for payment for Bansko, were surprised but also our problem not checked him before us, on the other hand was worth, from here on, we didn't have these drops. Study.

RILA first day Teddy Bears Dancing Club Park-1750 Semkovo hut
Track RILA's source was designed differently, we decided to change a bit and start the route from Bansko, organized transportation to the park dancing bears visited the site, it's nice not to get especially not recommended unless you are in the area. From there we caught a short 3 km ride on a dirt road back to 1250 m altitude access road, today to rise to 1750 m by smckov map סמ"ש. We began walking on a dirt road that crossed the River, we saw only small yellow marks without signs started climbing and saw only one sign (each track) that showed it was headed for the cabin, in fact we steered by the map on dirt trails as sometimes had to guess which paths belong to our walk way was short time (two hours net) but tension check and walk without having to open the map all the time felt much more briefly in my opinion not recommended at all.
Smckov Lodge is located near a small lake has hot showers and bedding from the Russians and of course total fine restaurant can be reached also is not far from the site smckov.

RILA-second day RibniEzera 2230 Semkovo hut-hut

[Although there is a good Russian beds we decided to leave early because it was a windy day forecast borrowing before the company made our route but in reverse, and they noted that green סמ"ש yesterday (map) this map + mistake mirror axis starts six miles north east of the cabin and complacency that saw the first names but didn't bother to open map, brought us a 300 metres at fifteen for free had to drop back and we returned to the cabin to find out how most strongly that start from there spent almost 3 hours of power and time without rain. Only at 9:30 we started practice the track was green for profit and highlighted.

Until we got to dump off some height 2000 and beyond a tiny water channel stopped, we noticed that all the grass nearby was a step that we are looking for marks at one point found some three marks on the trees continued to nowhere because the field was decided to take a chance and move towards assuming that is maybe the path. After about half an hour and Dachau on map and compass were able to detect remotely Northeast us snow check pages, cut out there and made it back to cm-lucky green.
Continued moderate climb through meadows and temporary residence of the shepherds in the direction of the pass and Ridge met a group of Bulgarians with Israeli society two adults when they go under pressure because of the fear of the storm approaching southern was zero visibility all the clouds we saw amazing scenery to the North until we got to the pass of 2400 mm, hence beyond the semester the blue was really easy and fast. Very wide range of grassy track up and down the wind began to gain strength to be cool and close the clouds rose wonders, another young company once met poles also were under pressure from the storm decided to stop for coffee quick course, but Murphy worked to our detriment with a hotplate railway began dripping rain. We immediately on full rain gear and continued walking in the rain and wind did not really pleasant South wind hit us hard and the rain wasn't strong relative course view unseen. The tmadno quick walk to warm up to the point where (so we thought) began the descent off the Ridge northward, overlooking a small lake and found some small hiding under a huge rock and of course prepared hot tea stimulates and refreshes, ה"ירידה" was actually a large block of rock's right flanking him continued on long walk not significant until the cabin view wet pour ribani 2237 m and two lakes at an altitude of 150 m decrease birth for relatively comfortable snake brought us to the cabin.

Without the mistake went five and a half hours. in hot water is clean sheets and some large dense domteri rooms and good food-need more? We met 2 girls cabin young Israeli companies are delightful dry clothes by the fireplace. Of course, as you might expect the Israelis known abroad grew and gave them tips for backpacking. Of course below met several times on the way.

Tuesday, RILA RibniEzera hut 1465 Polyana Kirilova

Sunny morning started at last! I went to photograph the stunning South Lake whose beauty never saw yesterday because of the rain, we had breakfast and went through a yellow light along the סמ"ש Lake near the cabin and significant decrease until you arrive to a dirt road 10 km until checked Motel krilova Poland and decided to sleep in the family's house near the port of rest, except that the bed isn't comfortable place best selling food. Total for the day hours: 30 hours we did laundry NET quick and went walking on the road to visit the Rila Monastery, the Vihara on the asphalt walking was harder than walking route (an hour and a half) beautiful monastery is well worth a visit, and we certainly don't like visiting monasteries j. near the Abbey there is a place that sells its umbrella (like mrokas's spintz) tasty half heart which Saddam 5 with yogurt and powdered sugar-highly recommended Where we met again at the young girls who were looking for a place to stay near the Abbey later they join sleep where we slept in the back of the monastery already had much better luck and hitchhiked with Bulgarians nicer and a lot of them fortunately a lot, we are happy and cheerful to the family home.

Wednesday, RILA Malyovitsa hut, 1992 - KirilovaPolyana
We don't simply night of lightning and Thunder and roof water leak on the bed next to us but it's all forgotten when getting up to see surprisingly clean sky clouds, although it knew the forecast for rain this afternoon and so we decided to go at 6:30 in the direction of Apple tea ltoica we + wafer managed to wake us up, we started to climb quite sharply in first semester starts right at the green room. At first the trail was steep but sharp among the trees, at one point we started walking away from that artyava us shoes and pants as if it rained we Lake was completely dry, Soto and continued along its length within plants, at some point the landscape started to open up and the track will be light until "hostel-2145 height I accidentally thought it was planning a cabin, please note — hence the track climbs moderately in the first semester to the West passes through two beautiful lakes and then climbs steeply to pass through big horse herd 2450 meets with סמ"ש Yellow and green color coffee with clouds blanket the North and far East pleasant times NET away on line continue climbing until 2510 and the landscape changes completely rocky Alpine hiking on boulders slowest as shananim threatening and blacks are beginning to descend upon us, come to the Lake "Schlatter" beside a blue סמ"ש, and two babies were Belgian break, continue to lose altitude and near Lake with a group of Poles from us shortly after starting to drip from rain rise leads us to decrease won't Ends and very slippery in the rain until the hut ltbica pesky. And some nice, long nervous about 6 hours weather NET, but equal in cabin renovations really advanced new rooms and beds and mattresses not believe even 5 stars, hot shower, linens and an excellent cuisine and the record superb two young English admiring this place when we got to the cabin at first stunned by the amount of people that were there we got all wet and no brother was on but slowly empty place except that some were day visitors a wonderful room and hot shower-oshsho, DC-and even the fireplace lit so It was possible to dry shoes and equipment.

Thursday, RILA -- Malyovitsa hut ל- Sedemteezera 2196

The forecast for today was a very beautiful day, great night real hot beds) We got Izzy from the cabin started rising a mild cm Blue, at some point there is a monument to the climbers-some sad where the path forks and Red far was used and cool. At some point, you start climbing quite difficult in some 600 km in altitude up to 2650 hours walk far. From there the trail on the Ridge right on a rock climbing after the thing becomes more comfortable but with a lot of ups and downs really sewing, the clouds came and went but mostly kept us-unfortunately! We arrived in split red and blue and Red left only in Bulgaria that could happen, we continued with red lead to 2700 high producer was worth a good break we are back on our way to proceed with the second red began to meet and a pair of Israeli travelers but started to tire of atepirot.
Really not over. Luckily once the clouds opened up and we were able to see our beautiful lakes to the North but that's over and we continued walking in the clouds today travellers amount increased significantly and it was clear we really close to seven lakes started in decline and saw only the first Lake left – really.
How many people became crazy funny mainly heard them but haven't seen them because of thick cloud we were inside, we decided to stop for a break above the "" key, and perhaps open a we can see something but nothing Banda, continued in this hallucinatory walking all day shlshmhatno travelers saw the Lake suddenly bring to at least five minutes just to enjoy it and even take a picture and take some fun!
Back to the cloud and accompanied us until sdema cabin Ezra (seven lakes) 2200 m when we only saw about the remaining Lakes, we decided to get up the next morning and do tour "standard" for walking.
Total for the day: 10 days net easy to end up with a lot more energy to the cloud and especially the last part.
In taking private room cost more but the domteri looks bad no showers! Tap water and WC outside!! And the place really nice all the given name feels weird and there were also quite a few weird guests. we must start the heating in the dining room, and they refused to fire and we had to go to froze sleep early. In short the worst cabin we were until now, a single point of light was the daughter of the owner where at least we warmer and sympathetic attitude with excellent English but she was just here in August Please note that it is best to avoid the event.

Friday, RILA BANSKO. - Sedemteezera
