The kingdom of Mumjidam and its inhabitants. A story has survived through the centuries


Kingdom of Mumjidam

Through nine mountains in the tenth, through nine forests in the tenth, through nine rivers in the tenth there was a kingdom nestled on a small hill in the heart of the Rhodopes. It was big and lively, people looked after the animals, cultivated the land ...

Sounds like a fairy tale, but not quite. Mumjidam is a small neighborhood located near the village of Tri Mogili. It is famous for its beautiful stone houses and the amazing views that open up from it.

Currently, the population there is about 50-60 cows, several goats, one dog and one person. Numerous remains of houses can be seen and only two that still manage to hold on to nature. One belongs to Tunger, who returns from Switzerland to look after his father and stays here. He is also the last remaining permanent resident of Mumjidam. The other house (pictured) is of a man from the village of Tri Mogili who watches his cows here and spends most of his summer in this fabulous place.

Our walk started in front of the municipality of Tri Mogili, where we found this adventure van. The path to Mumjidam is well marked in blue and passes through the forest on a narrow road. It is about 3-4 km long and takes no more than 40 minutes to its final destination.

From Mumjidam you can see on the opposite hill Sara Kaya (yellow rock), which can be seen as if perched between the woods. To get to it you have to go down to the river and climb up to the rock again, and this is said to take you about 2-3 hours (one way). We left it for another time because it was raining and the forecast was for a thunderstorm. But as you can guess, we really liked the place and we will definitely come back.

See you soon, Mumjidam
