From there we enter Central Balkan Park to start our hike in Bulgaria’s Stara Reka Reserve and the picturesque gorge of the river.
From Stara Reka it’s about 2 hours and 30 minutes to the Balkan Hut Hubavets (964 m), situated at the waters of the Little River and the Big River, amidst a splendid beech forest. We continue walking along the Great River and for about an hour we arrive at our next destination Balkan Roses (1100 m). Shortly after, we will enjoy a series of beautiful water puddles and ponds called Kazanite, as well as a wonderful view of the Turtle peak, and after an hour we reach Hut Levski (1450 m). 15 minutes’ walk from the hut is the waterfall “Karlovsko praskalo” with a height of 26 meters.
We will be hiking along extremely beautiful coniferous, deciduous and mixed forests, amidst a unique landscape and rich fauna and flora; we will be crossing the river many times over fairy-tale bridges.
Our hiking in Bulgaria takes us to a hut restaurant only open in the summer season.
