The Mighty Central Balkan
04 – 07 SEP 2020
Come and dive into the beauty of the Central Balkan – one program encompassing one of the most emblematic spots of Stara Planina.
We offer you an intriguing trekking encompasses one of the most emblematic spots of the Balkan. We are going to hike its highest summit – Botev peak, we will go through the alpine traverse of Stara planina. We will enjoy the highest waterfall in Bulgaria – Raiskoto (Paradise) praskalo and will enjoy the hospitality of the local mountain huts. Come with us and become part of this mountain fairy tale.
Stara Planina (or the Balkan, how it is called as well) is the oldest mountain range in Bulgaria dividing it from west to east. Its central part is the most spectacular one and attracts a lot of mountaineers. It is part of the National Park “Central Balkan” which is one of the three national parks in Bulgaria. Stara Planina is often neglected comparing to Rila and Pirin – the highest mountains in Bulgaria. But everyone who has touched to it once knows very well its beauty – the highest waterfalls are here, old beech forests, vast alpine meadows, cosy mountain huts and hospital hosts. Stara Planina for us is something more than its natural beauties – here we feel connected with Mother Nature, we feel like being at home. In the same time Stara Planina has one of the harshest climate when it comes to be angry. Stara Planina is vast enough in variety of aspects and has something for everybody. But the most attractive part remains the Central Balkan no matter if you look at it from north or south.
