    The Davies, Route 8

    Posted on November 17, 2018 by in blog

    The Davies, Route 8 Dzhangal#87 Djangal#87 Option 1   The Davies, Route 8 has two options. Djangal ( I prefer this spelling!) is a mighty peak made of great rock and has over a dozen routes to the summit. We think two should be enough for here! The Davies, Route 8. Option 1.  Starting at […]

    The Davies, Route 5.

    Posted on October 28, 2018 by in blog

    The Davies, Route 5. Pitel #44, Mozgovishki Chukar #45#46#47#49   Mozgovishki Chukar has proved to be one of the hardest routes to put together for The Davies.  It isn’t the most technically challenging route or the longest. Those titles probably go to Yalovarnika #55 and Golena #58. But route 4 poses it’s own unique chalenges. […]

    The Davies, Route 4.

    Posted on September 9, 2018 by in blog

    The Davies, Route 4. Sivria #78. I take huge pleasure hiking on my own in Pirin . There is a zen like peace, almost meditative state that wandering our hills brings to me.  The silence filled with the millions of tiny noises of nature, the stillness punctuated only by the babble of streams and the […]

    The Davies, Route 3.

    Posted on September 9, 2018 by in blog

    The Davies, Route 3. Todorka#37, Sredna Todorka#36, Malka Todorka#35   Life in Pirin has 4 very distinct seasons. Cold snowy winters give way to mild wet springs of lush alpine meadows filled with flowers. The summer is hot and dry with months of relentless sunshine drying out the hills into a uniform khaki brown. The […]

    The Davies, Route 2.

    Posted on July 24, 2018 by in blog

    The Davies, Route 2. Djano #80, Chengel Chal #81, Demir Chal #82, Yazunov Vrah #83, Kornishki Vrah #84, Hleven #85, Kadiev Vrah #90.   As a contrast to Route 1, I thought route 2 should be one of least visited corners of Pirin. I have a profound love for the extremities of National Park Pirin. […]

    The Davies, Route 1.

    Posted on July 15, 2018 by in blog

    The Davies, Route 1. Vihren #17 and Hvoinati #18.   There is no particular order that you should climb The Davies. Route 1, for most people, has to be the highest and most impressive mountain in Pirin. Over the next 20 or 30 posts we aim to describe our favourite routes to top of the […]

    Summer Suppers

    Summer Suppers   The restaurant was properly busy this winter. With so many people asking about eating with us in the summer I’ve decided to do a few summer suppers! From late June to mid September we will be cooking three nights a week. It’s a similar format to that which we do in the […]
