5 Adrenaline Summer Hikes You Should Go For

August 7, 2018

If you are a thrill seeker then read the below and start planning your next adventure. We have chosen to highlight this summer five locations where beauty meets adrenaline. The good news - travelling to each of them can be combined with a day or more on the seaside. So, without further ado, let the adventure begin!

 

Living on the edge

 

Steep slopes and sharp edges - welcome to Pirin Mountain in Bulgaria! For those who enjoy rocky and challenging trails that come with breathtaking views, Koncheto Saddle is a must. There is a touristic route from Yavorov Chalet that passes this exiting area and leads to Vihren and Banderitsa Chalets. A hiking trip through the saddle can be combined with hiking Vihren Peak (2 914 m.), Bulgaria's second and Balkans' third highest after Musala (2 925 m.) and Mytikas (2 917 m.). Koncheto is the lowest (2 810 m.) and the narrowest (up to 50 sm.) section of the Karst between the peaks Banski Suhodol and Kutelo II. It is about 150 m. long un-wooded, narrow and hard to pass saddle. Its north-eastern slopes descent almost vertically towards the circus of Banski suhodol. Its west-southern slopes, which form a 70 degree angle, slant towards the valley of Vlahinska River. Access for hikers was made easier by a steel rope. There is also a path along the south-eastern slopes of the saddle. Definitely a hike to remember! If you are looking for new horizons, go for that one. You will not regret it.
