October 2016. I and my three sons stayed at the Ivan Vazov Hut on the second night on a wonderful hiking tour that Luben Grancharov guided us. We arrived there on a late called afternoon, and welcomes with a hot tee – practically haven. After dinner we set with the hosting family and felt like home. We waked up early in the morning, to see an amazing & unique sun-rise, one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. The sun pops out between the surrounding mountains, that in a way reflect the light between them – the view is like the sun is rising from all directions; no words can describe it – you need to see it yourself. For breakfast we got tasty pancakes; the team was so kind to make sure that we ate enough and even made my younger son age 15, and extra dish! The n Luben guided us up the mountains’,to see the 7 lakes of Rila. I will never forget these days!
