Vihren Hut - Vihren

Highlights

  • The Vihren is inferior to the highest bulgarian peak with only a modest 11 m, but this does not make it any less attractive for mountaineers. The peak used to be called Eltepe, which means "peak of storms", which is due to the fact that there the winds change sharply, almost for a split second.
