In the Heart of Rila Mountain
15 – 16 july 2023
A fascinating circular route in the heart of Rila mountain. The biggest and many other glacier lakes, peaks and old pristine pine forests. Come with us end enjoy this unpopular part of the mountain.
Central Rila is one of the 4 main parts of the highest mountain in Bulgaria and in the Balkans. The fact that it remains a bit away from the crowds makes it interesting for us. This range is rich of glacier lakes having the biggest one in Bulgaria here – Smradlivoto. Apart from it we will go also to Ribnite (Fish) lakes, Suhoto (Dry) lake and few other high-mountain cirques. The steep deep valleys make this part of the mountain hardly accessible which is the reason to have the nature in its most virgin, natural appearance. And this is the reason why we want to bring you here. Part of the route passes through the territory of Natural park Rila Monastery famous with its old pine trees. Another accent in our tour is the ridge that divides both deep valleys of Rilska and Iliina rivers with fabulous panoramic views.
Our base for the weekend is Ribni Ezera hut placed between the same called lakes, right in the heart of the mountain (2230 m asl.). Although its basic amenities, there is a bathroom with hot water and hot cooked food. We may extend our program with climbing some of the peaks around it depending on your enthusiasm.
This program is suitable for people in good physical condition. If you are not sure whether it fits to you, we advise you to call us in advance and we will help you to make a decision. We know well that any great mountain adventure starts with a proper route choice.
The program will take place with a minimum of 5 participants.
