Vihren, Bansko

#4 of 8 in Parks in Bansko
Mountain · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Climb, hike, and ski at Vihren, the highest peak in Bulgaria's Pirin Mountains. Start from Vihren Hut, and follow the red markers. You can see all the highest peaks of the Pirin massif and a number of lakes from the summit, which is 2,914 m (9,560 ft) above sea level. Be cautious on the north side, as the path is narrow and rocky. On the way down from Vihren Hut to Bansko, on the left side of the path, look for the 1,300-year-old Baikousheva white fir. Always bring water and additional clothing when climbing to the peak. Vihren is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , world travel planner Edition.
