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.

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.

No doubt that the scenery there is stunning as the journey from Bansko up to the hut was through a heavily wooded area. We could not leave the car however due to an invasion of flies that literally covered the windscreen as we pulled up.....More

Another thought, the 'waterfall walk' follows the river uphill from Bansko. We walked a couple of sections over a couple of days. The well walked path is mostly through woodland, veering back and forth between the river and... More
