Hike the highest Bulgarian Peak and take the best trail in Rila ending at the 7 Rila Lakes. Rila Mountain is the highest mountain in Bulgaria and Musala peak its highest peak at 2925m altitude. It is a classic route with mixed difficulty. People generally take 4-7 days to complete this trip. You can sleep in huts or camp.
