The unknown countries of Batashka and Chernatitsa mountains
Batashka Mountain and Chernatitsa are one of the largest parts of the Rhodopes. However, most of their area remains outside the tourist trails. We invite you with us on a two-day adventure through these unknown parts of the mountain to enjoy together the endless panoramas of the green Rhodope Sea of forests, meadows and peaks, as well as to peek into the deep valley of the river Vacha, hidden in its bosom. the blue eyes of several dams.
• Panoramic transition over the valley of the river Vacha
• Panoramic transition over the village of Beden
• Climbing the Dry Peak
• Visiting the remains of the Beadnos fortress
Day 1 - 25.07, Saturday
Meeting of the group in the village of Stomanevo at 11:00 am - start of the mountain guide service. Today our transition is through the southeastern part of Batashka Mountain. We move through mixed forests, which alternate with meadows. From different points of the route there are wonderful views of tomorrow’s destination - Chernatitsa, the highest part of the Rhodopes - Mursalitsa and Devinska Mountain. After seeing the highest dam in the valley of Vacha from above, we descend for a meeting with the transport - the end of the mountain guide service for today. Transfer to the guest house, where we will relax in a tavern in a traditional style, at a table with delicious Rhodope specialties prepared by our kind hosts. Transition: about 7 hours; displacement +400 m / -750 m.
Day 2 - 26.07, Sunday
Transfer to the village of Beden - start of the mountain guide service. It is worth stopping by the remains of the Beadnos fortress on Suhiya Vrah, from where the Mursalitsa hill captivates us with all its splendor and invites us as guests. The shepherds along our road are a testimony to the fact that numerous herds have roamed here in the past, and the brass ringing of the vats and the barking of the faithful guards have echoed the mountain. Today we admire from afar the places we passed yesterday. Finally, satisfied with the experience and charged with a lot of positive energy, we head to the meeting place with the transport - the end of the mountain guide service. We leave for Sofia. Transition: about 8 hours; displacement +400 m. / -400 m.
