Mountain Reflection On Gondola

Summer is here, and the Bansko gondola lift is open. Lift opening times are helpful for a hike in the Pirin, mountain bike or just for some cool mountain fresh air. I’ll be up in the mountains soon, and I’ll be revealing a few surprises in the mountains. Please go to last ski season’s lift pas prices article for an idea Of what 2011/2012 prices are likely to be.

You can use the gondola lift to take your bike up ( the only one open). 5 lev each way. Here are the 2011 gondola opening times:

Some Alternative Hiking Locations

There is an excellent lift up to the Seven Rila Lakes from Panichishte. For article and video click here.

Also for hikers, mountain bikers and paragliding go to Sopot, on the Stara Planina. A single chair lift takes you high up, this beautiful area.

    I missed riding gondolas, I have rode that since I was a kid. I missed the fun and the view from the top.
