Negotiating rocks on way down from Lake Moratovo

The fine weather and my Pirin hiking continues.

Whilst Perun was the Thracian god of thunder and lightening, and giving the name to Pirin. Our UNESCO designated World Heritage Site is serving up some memorable moments for those joining our free guided hiking days


Hiking in the Pirin

Yesterday it felt good escaping the 33 degree C heat of the Razlog valley. Another friendly group join me in the mountains. I decided on a route which is mainly easy going but with some steeper rocky sections to take the breath away.

I am a little ashamed to admit, but I boasted that the effort will be more than rewarded with the views.

They were not disappointed.

The destination, Moratovo Lake looked perfect in glistening sunshine. We stopped, snacked and eventually it was time to go down again.

Our four hour hike ended at my favourite mountain summer  restaurant. Located below Vihren hut, in fact just 300m from Bunderitsa hut. This year it’s the place for a beautiful pepper, tomato and cheese salad that is the star. Washing it down with a cool beer my fellow hikers a little tired buy happy.

The bill: only around 10 lv.
