"Delchevo village and Pirin mountain" by Joro
This is a short guide about hiking in the southwestern part of Bulgaria. Being the only active CouchSurfing host in this area, I had to provide directions and short explanations about the trails and the chalets each time when I had visitors. Eventually, I decided to put all these on a web site, so that people can easily check the available options for hiking in my area.

Recently, I moved to another country and I am no longer available as a host. nevertheless, I will keep the site online and I will try to update the information, hoping that it can help those who are planning to visit this extraordinary place.

Lastly, if you are heading to Bulgaria, it would be a good idea to bring a gps unit with you, as the trail marks are very uneven or simply missing ! Don't worry about the maps - you can download a very detailed and free one from [this site].

Shall you have any other questions, do not hesitate to contact me through my CouchSurfing profile.
