Koncheto in Pirin - The area, shelter, photos

in #steempresslast year (edited)

The Koncheto area is located between the peaks of Bayuvi Dupki and Banski Suhodol, on one of the most difficult and emblematic routes in Pirin.

The Alpine shelter is strategically located. (2,760 meters above sea level) If a person gets into bad weather, he has nowhere else to hide within 4 hours. So far, the shelter has saved the lives of many distressed tourists.

At its only wider section, with two huge precipices on both sides, in 1954-1955 the first Koncheto shelter was built. Since then, the shelter has not been overhauled.

This changes in the period August / September 2018, when the Koncheto shelter was completely rebuilt by the Mountaineers and People Association of Mountain Guides in Bulgaria and with the help of hundreds of volunteers.

Wild goats at Koncheto

Wild goats like to go very close to the Shelter. They do not worry about human presence.

The Saddle Mountain - Koncheto is steep and hard to reach.

It occupies the lowest and narrowest part of the karst edge between the peaks of Bansko Suhodol from the northwest and Kutelo from the southeast.

The length of the edge is about 400 m, its narrowest part is about 150 m.

The Bulgarian mountaineers Nikola Mironski and Lyuben Telcharov pass for the first time in 1934 under winter conditions through Koncheto.
