Into the Marble Pirin

25 – 27 august 2023

Unbeatable circle tour of the marble part of Pirin mountain which will take your breath away. Get ready for hard walking.

The Marble part of Pirin is the one that always grabs mountaineers. And that’s completely understandable due to its steep deep valleys, sharp peaks and rocky ridges. We will bring to an unbeatable tour around that part of Pirin which will take your breath away.
This route passes through some of the most remarkable places here – the highest Vihren peak and the narrow saddle of Koncheto. On top of them, we will bring you to some other remote places that makes this trip very special. Spectacular views are everywhere around you and we will not make even an effort to describe them. This program is in alignment with our main idea in Basecamp Tours – to have untypical tours where you would not go alone. Overnight stays are in mountain huts. Food to be ordered at the spot.
Get ready for serious walking. Daily tours are about 7-8 hours with significant elevation gain which makes this program suitable for people having previous mountaineering experience and in good physical condition. If you are not sure if this program fits to you, we recommend to call us in advance and we will help you to make a decision. We know that each good mountain experience starts with a proper route choice.

Day 1 (Thursday) – Yavorov hut
Gathering at Yavorov hut where we leave the cars. It offers pretty good conditions and good menu.

Day 2: Yavorov hut – Sinanitsa hut
This morning starts with 2.30 hours uphill towards Suhodolsi col passing through the same name lake. This is followed by continuous descend reaching Chernata Voda on the Vlahinska river valley just beneath the marble ridge. The pathway continues through age-old pine forest until we reach our final destination for the day – Sinanitsa hut situated next to same-name lake and below Sinanitsa peak. This hut has basic amenities. Duration: 7-8 hours. Elevation gain: 950 m.

Day 3: Sinanitsa hut – Gergiiski lakes – Vihren peak – Vihren hut
We head up towards Gergiiski lakes which often remain a bit away from standards routes. Then we will pass through another lake – the Big Vlahisko, before start climbing towards the highest peak in Pirin – Vihren. Its final pyramided and 3600 view are remarkable. Final long descent brings us to Vihren hut where we will have an overnight stay. Duration: 7-8 hours. Elevation gain: 1000 m.

Day 4: Vihren hut – Koncheto saddle – Yavorov hut
Today we start climbing towards the saddle between Vihren peak and Kutelo peak – both highest in Pirin. This exciting path crosses the east slopes of Vihren. From there we continue towards Koncheto saddle – a narrow marble ridge high above Bansko city. Our route keeps on following the marble ridge from where we start descending toward Yavorov hut passing through remote and rarely visited Kamenitishki valley. Back in the cards late afternoon. Duration: 7-9 hours. Elevation gain: 1000 m.
