In summer hiking trails can be pursued to reach uniquely beautiful nooks in the locality. The Seven Rila Lakes are among the outstanding choices. Rila has plenty charming chalets and a profusion of water in streams and lakes, which is uniquely pleasing. Each trail passes by streams or brooks, or lakes.

The Seven Rila Lakes

The Seven Rila Lakes are one of the most famous Bulgarian nature sight which fortunately provides great conditions for freeriding during the winter. The area comprises an expanse with seven lakes scattered around, and three peaks rising to surround the area, seeming to protect the resplendent landscape. The altitude of the lakes area varies from 2,095 to 2,535 meters. The water from one lake flows downward to the next lake, and the lowest located lake is the origin of the Dzherman river. Often the picture of the lakes is used to symbolize Bulgaria in adverts.

The highest located lake is Sulzata (Tear): its altitude is 2,535 meters. Okoto has the largest depth: 2,440 meters. Its area is 68 decares. Bubreka is a lake shaped like a kidney, that is why it got its name meaning “kidney” in Bulgarian. Bubreka’s greatest depth is 28 meters. The other lakes are Ribnoto, Trilistnika, Dolnoto, and a lake with two parts joined by a narrow passage – that was why it was called Bliznaka (Twin).
