Mount Musala Winter Ascent


Mount Musala

6:30-7h, +1000/-1000 m

Borovets ski resort

Transfer from Sofia to Borovets ski resort (1350 m, 1,15 hour drive from Sofia).

Ledenoto Ezero Chalet

We take the gondola lift up to about 2400 m, from there a couple of hours trek takes us to Ledenoto Ezero Chalet at 2700 m. From here starts the last part on the ridge, with a metal cable rope up to the top. Crampons are needed for safety reasons. The top offers incredible views in good weather.


We will retrace our way back for the last gondola or descend to Borovets (an extra 900 m).
