This two-day hike will take you in the most pristine and panoramic part of Rila Mountains - the sixth highest mountain in Europe. We will start with a hike to the remote Ivan Vazov hut passing by the crystal clear waters of each of the Seven Rila Lakes - the pearls of Rila Mountains, and continue with a superb traverse on the main ridge of the mountain, climb the symbol of Bulgarian mountaineering - Malyovitsa summit (2736m) and descend to the big glacier valley of Malyovitsa River. This trip is suitable for experienced hikers or people in good physical condition. Sometimes the ridge walk might be in clouds so prepare for cooler weather with warmer and waterproof clothes.
Conditions in the hut are basic, rooms are dormitories with bunk beds, there are toilets available on the ground floor. Linens and blankets are provided, but you can bring your summer sleeping bag if you prefer. Food is freshly cooked and served, although there is no big variety - so you can bring food if it is something special - usually they have beans or lentils soup, omlettes, delicious cheese from a local diary, etc. It is suggested that you buy lunch pack from the hut for the second day or be prepared with nuts, energy bars, dried fruits, etc.
