Re: One of those sights

That part of Rila is even less often visited I guess. Did you go there on your trek?

Re: Your question

made me remember something, I rushed to unlock my case of maps, dug into it and took out a little diary written on the trek – the dates, route, impressions (I've already corrected my log). As to this particular view, it reads: "Fantastic sight to S – Marica cirque (nature reserve), a herd of chamois below us". No, we didn't go there though we did head south, along the main ridge, to Dżanka Pass, then west to the monastery to get some food, back east to Makedonia chalet, then south towards the Pirin. Two years later, I visited (besides part of Romania and the highest part of the Stara Planina) NW Rila – the most picturesque plus a range of (also technical!) climbing options.
So Kamil, thanks a million for refreshing my memory - feels like DDR2 in place of DDR1 (though DDR is over, just like the plaques:-)

Re: Your question

Must have been a great trip of many days...
Spojrzałem na mapę i mniej więcej wiem jak szliście, zupełnie nie znam tamtej części Riły.

Re: Your question

S Rila looks like a higher version of the Bieszczady combined with W Tatras; The following area is by far Rila's best:
Mieliśmy mapkę wycietą z "Poznaj Świat'a" - jakieś 20X15 cm:-) - to też ma swoje uroki, chociaż nieuchronnie coś ciekawego się zawsze ominie
