Very nice hike with beautiful scenery. If going by car you should get there before 9:00 to park near otherwise you'll be forced to park outside the national Park and find your way inside somehow.

Medium difficulty. Very nice views from the top of the peak. It takes around 3h to reach it. Totally worth it.

One of the places in Bulgaria, where you will be away from Bulgarian foolishness. The second highest peak in Bulgaria is maybe the most beautiful one. A day hike to the peak from Vihren hut is an adventure to enjoy. The total displacement is 1000m...More

The parking lot is narrow and small. There are many crowds. There is a wonderful view from above. The air is very clean. Not very steep.
