Recommendations

Participating in this program can serve as training for more technically difficult winter ascents and longer traverses such as:

- Peak Zlia Zub
- Traverse Dobrila - Botev
- The Full Traverse of Malyovitsa
- Vihren Peak via Djamdjiev Ridge
- Dvuglav Peak

as well as for summer ascents of peaks with higher altitude e.g.:

- Mont Blanc via Goûter Route
- Grossglockner

Musala traverse is recommended as a second step in gaining the necessary experience for participating in the other winter programs, offered by Vertical World Bulgaria, and is an excellent opportunity for testing one’s abilities and personal equipment in the beginning of the active winter season.
