The Pirin/Rhodope Mountains region
This high mountain plain in the South West region of Bulgaria is surrounded by three mountain ranges - the Rila, Rhodope and Pirin. The Pirin National Park was established in the 1962 and has since become a UNESCO Heritage Site. The Vihren region of the park is most closely associated with the town of Bansko with its 16 Century walled houses at the centre and it is in this region of the park where Bulgaria's onldest tree grows – the Baykusheva Fir, which is more than 1,300 years old. Vihren Peak at 2,914m is the highest point in the Pirin Mountains, second only to Musala in the Rila Range which at 2925m is the highest peak in the Balkan peninsula.
Bulgaria has over 700 natural mineral spa with temperatures ranging from 28 to 91 C, the largest concentration of which are found in the Pirin, Rila and Rhodope areas. The next village Banya ( Bath in Bulgarian), with 27 mineral springs, is the site of both a Roman and Turkish bath and has many indoor and outdoor mineral pools for year round enjoyment.
The Gondola to the Bansko ski area can be found above the village of Bansko or alternatively you can drive up to the Banderishka station with easy access onto the slopes. As of 2010, the ski area has 75km of ski runs, 27 lifts and drags, serving up to 24,500 persons/hour. The lift-served summit rises to an elevation of 2,600m above sea level. The vertical drop is nearly 1,000m to the base area at Banderishka Poliana, and over 1,60 m with the ski runs to town.
Dolno Draglishte is found in the folds of the Rila mountain 14km away from the Bansko ski area and 5km from Banya.
