The Seven Rila Lakes
One of the most stunning hikes in the surrounding countryside will take you up a mountain trail where you’ll be able to spot a new lake at every turn. The Seven Rila Lakes all have names reflecting their characteristics – Lower Lake, Fish Lake, Trefoil Lake, Twin Lake, Kidney Lake, Eye Lake, and Tear Lake. Continue up the ridge after the last one to reach the Lake Peak – a vantage point that will let you see all lakes but one from above. To get there, you’ll need to take a private tour or try your luck with the local public buses.
