Had great time climbing with nikki. He knows the rila and pirin mts really well. He's your man for any outing to the Bulgarian nature, plus, he's nice and a good person to talk to.

I recommend this via ferrata with this guide. Our guide was great, really good English so no problem of communication, he answered all our questions and was eager to talk with us, he adapated to the different level of experience of our group. The via ferrata in itself is not so hard, maybe 2 or 3 more difficult passages but it went fine for all of us. The view on top is amazing, but also alongside the hiking/climbing. We had a wonderful day, thank you!

I joined the Avalanche Basics course in Feb 2020. Right from the start the communication was really great and I felt welcomed despite being a solo traveller with no Bulgarian. Niki and the team were very friendly, along with the other participants on the course. Despite being the only non-Bulgarian the team made sure that everything was communicated in English. The content of the course was great and I would definitely recommend to anyone who is considering taking such a course. On top of this the location is also really beautiful and definitely worth the trip. All in all I would definitely recommend to others.

Few weeks ago I contacted with Niki from "Split the Mountain" company, In order to guide me and my family through via-ferrata trauk near Trigrad (Bulgaria). Niki came with Yordan and kead us (family of 4 people) through this trail. Niki and Yordan were very proffesionals, they give us the feeling thay we are safe and secure, explain us in very detaiks what to do, and were very patcient to our needs. the trail with Niki and Yordan is unforgottable, and it was the highlights of our tour to Bulgaria, Niki and Yordan - Thanks a lot for the guidness. I'm highly recommended to all of the readers to use the sertvices and guideness of "Split The Mountain"/ Yuval
