The Iskar Panega eco trail is located in the area of the town of Lukovit. It is located on the banks of the river Zlatna Panega and passes from one side of the river to the other. The trail is short and easy, but it will definitely amaze you with the beauty of the surrounding nature and the tranquility of this place. Beautiful wooden bridges take you over the river while you enjoy its beautiful colors and the fabulous nature around. And if you feel an adventurous mood, you can explore the cave "Temnata dupka" (The dark hole) just near the trail.See more
Asen Fortress is located near Asenovgrad. It is located on the rocky hill Mogilata and it has a great view from the road Asenovgrad - Smolyan. The fortress, which rises at least 100 meters above the road, was a major strategic point above the pass connecting Plovdiv with the Aegean. With its almost vertical slopes, even overhanging the river, it is inaccessible on all three sides. The excellent location and natural protection of the area has been used since the time of the Thracians, who in the V century BC. build a fortification.See more
This week we decided to take on a more unusual walk and went in the direction of Radomir (Pernik region) in order to conquer the highest peak of the mountain Golo Bardo.
Vetrushka peak is located at 1158 m. above sea level and is the highest peak in the Golo Bardo mountain. There are several routes to it, the most popular being from the Orlite hut (from the direction of Radomir) and from the Slavey hut (from the direction of Pernik).
Suddenly an alarm rang, followed by another. One by one we started to get out of bed. It wasn't that early - around 6:40AM, but it's so sweet to sleep in a hut that you can't get easily up. We dressed properly, prepared the equipment and left the hut waiting for the sunrise. The plan changed in motion and we decided to wait for the sunrise on the hill next to the hut. We had thought that the sun would appear on this side. At one point, the sky turned fabulously pink. There was a very strong constant wind, but we were well dressed. I took the drone up in the air and started waiting for the first rays.See more
Pirin Mountain is famous in mountaineering circles for its beautiful posture, its marble giants and its challenging nature. It is very beautiful, but it can also be very raw if you underestimate it.
Today I will take you to it to visit its peak - Vihren peak. Vihren rises to 2914 m. altitude and is the second highest peak in Bulgaria and the third highest on the Balkan Peninsula. The reason for his visit is my new series about the 100 national tourist sites of Bulgaria.
