Kutelo (Bulgarian: Кутело) is the second highest peak in Pirin, southwestern Bulgaria (2,908 m). Like Vihren, which towers to the south, Kutelo is marble but its slopes though sheer are not so rocky and it is not very difficult to climb. Kutelo is a double peak with a small saddle between the two parts, the lower being only one meter below the higher one, at 2,907 m. The Premkata saddle is situated to the south and leads to Vihren while to the north is the narrow karst edge Koncheto. There are no marked tracks to the summit of Kutelo, but on the slanting western slope among the rocks is nestled the track between the Vihren refuge and Yavorov refuge. This track also leads along Koncheto. In a cirque to the north east there are snow-drifts all the year.
