Who we are
HIKING-SHMIKING is a group of enthusiastic coworkers with various backgrounds who initially gathered together to conquer Vitosha mountain paths twice a week. Chasing the sunrise (and sometimes the sunset) and sharing the many amazing views on the way to inspire well-being.

How we got here
2 years later the HIKING-SHMIKING group turned out to be much more. Weekend trips to the Rhodope, Rila, Pirin, Osogovo and Balkan mountains got more frequent and more exciting. Macedonia and Greece (Mytikas) were too close to miss out on. High peaks and good times went on and on.
So one day a bigger challenge had to be set. The farer, the better.
A year ago the bravest of all – Poly, Svetla, Nina, Ruslan, Ventsi and Georgi – decided to set a real adventure to remember. Climb the African number one and the world’s tallest free standing mountain – Kilimanjaro.
Mount Kilimanjaro or just Kilimanjaro
With its three volcanic cones, Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira, is a dormant volcano in Tanzania. It is the highest mountain in Africa, with its summit about 4,900 metres (16,100 ft) from its base, and 5,895 metres (19,341 ft) above sea level. The first people known to have reached the summit of the mountain were Hans Meyer and Ludwig Purtscheller, in 1889. The mountain is part of Kilimanjaro National Park and is a major climbing destination.
