On the ridge of the Balkans – from Beklemeto to Kozya Stena hut

Reading time: 6 minutes

I’ve been dreaming for the ridges of the Balkans for long time. And the idea finally riped during one sunny weekend when we decided to go to the Central Balkans mountain.

The Central Balkan National Park is one amazing place which is situated in the heart of Bulgaria and includes the highest peaks of the Balkans. From the slopes you can see the South and the North part of Bulgaria, amazing nature, horses, caws as well as many preserved species, including edelweisses. And to be more correct – the area close to the Kozya stena hut is the only one place in the Balkan mountain where you can see the edelweisses.

Ecopath “Looking at nine mountains”- Sofia Region

Reading time: 5 minutes

A panoramic view to surrounding hillsThe ‘Looking at nine mountains’ path was in my plan for long but I knew that I have to wait for a ‘special weather condition day’. I had read that it may be hot to climb (due to expose to the sun and less trees) and it’s not recommended going there during the Summer. The perfect moment came at the beginning of September. It was a sunny autumn day, not so hot and very convenient to climb peaks. That day I realised that you shouldn’t travel hundreds of kilometers to see nice places – there are many of those at a hand distance.

One day in Lozen Mount – Lozen Monastery and Pasarel dam

Reading time: 5 minutes

Finally the summer came. The rains stopped at the beginning of August and the sweltering heat of the city forced me to search salvation in the mountain. After a short analysis where to go I concluded that there are two places that are suitable for one day trip and I haven’t been soon – Lozen Mount and Vitosha. Vitosha of course is the most popular mountain among the residends of Sofia and is not a good idea to go there during the weekend, so I decided to go to Lozen – the less know destination.
