The hiking trip to Musala, the highest peak in Rila mountain and on the Balkan Peninsula, is a challenge to scale. It rises to 2,925 meters, and on the way to the peak where a meteo station is located you can see the highest lake in the entire Balkans territory. That is the Ledeno (Icy) lake.
In Rila mountain, Bulgaria, Borovets is the mountain resort to choose for its plethora of amenities and its proximity to beautiful spots, mountain chalets, where having herb tea and immersing in the serenity and grandeur of nature are unrivaled pleasures. Borovets is also a staring point for hiking in Rila mountain, the most popular which is the hiking route to Musala peak.
In Central Rila mountain, I recommend visiting the Smradlivo lake, a great destination for hiking tours in Rila mountain. It belongs with the abundance of lakes and springs which dot Rila. Another area replete with lakes is the Seven Rila Lakes locality, a vast valley where the seven lakes in different shapes are located at different heights. The beauty of the locality and the unique accommodation at the two chalets, the older of them by one of the lakes, attract all fans of mountain beauty.
Another spot I can wholeheartedly recommend in Rila mountain, Bulgaria is the Karpatnik reserve, the oldest Bulgarian reserve, lying in the southwest of the mountain. These are just some of the spots and nooks I can show you during our hiking tour in Rila, Bulgaria.
