There are several walking routes with varying levels of ease/hard to walk around mount Vihren and up to the peak itself. Those are well marked. The stunning views are worth the effort!

Slightly snowy but still accessible! Took some great pictures. Well worth a visit! We headed to the second lake past Okoto which took around 2.5 hours round trip.

Going on the top of Pirin offers unique views of the mountain and the valley. The path there is good, however, requires some good condition.

Vihren looks like a bright, majestic pyramid and because of its shape is a bit similar to K2 or Matterhorn. The Lord of the Pirin. I got to the top of Vihren during a hiking tour to the mountains of Bulgaria. We started and finished...More

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.
