Outstanding natural beauty in the Rila Mountains National Park
We spend an extraordinary hiking day in the highest mountain on the Balkan Peninsula - Rila and more precisely within the boundaries of the Rila National Park - the largest of the three national parks in Bulgaria. The Seven Rila Lakes is the most popular trekking destination in Rila Mountains because of the outstanding beauty of the glacial lakes and the whole circus. The lakes are one of the 100 national tourist sites in Bulgaria as well. These mountain pearls are amphitheatrically situated one above the other as follows: The Tear (the highest one at 2535 m. a. s. l. ), The Eye, The Kidney, The Twins (the largest), The Trefoil, The Fish Lake and The Lower Lake (the lowest one at 2095 m. a. s. l. ).
