Trekking Day Trip to Rila Mountains and Mt Mousala from Sofia
"Your morning starts early with a transfer to Borovets ski resort (it takes about 1 hour 15 min) where you will take the cabin lift to Yastrebets hut (2370 m). This is the starting point of your 3-hour trek to the peak (+600 m). You will be led by well trodden paths but a rocky ground. The view from the top is really splendid so you can spend a short time admiring the views before taking the lift back.""""Mousala is the highest peak (at 2925 m) not only in Rila Mountains but on the whole Balkan Peninsula.
