Meet you early in the morning, pick you up at Sofia and transfer to the beginning of the tour. We will go on a round trip through the valley of Malyovitsa river until we reach the top and then we will return. We have 40min. hike to Malyovitsa hut from the parking. After a short rest, we start to cross the beautiful valley. This part is almost flat. At the end of the valley we reach a serious elevation and rocky path. That is the real face of Malyovitsa. After the first attack to that height we reach "Elena's lake", a perfect place for a short break. Soon we step to the main ridge. We see a perfect view to the valley surrounded by high crests. All around us we can observe by impressive peaks and Rila monastery looks so close to us from the top. We need less than an hour to reach the very emblematic summit and enjoy the incredible views. Finally, we will drive you back to the city.

During the hike, you will experience an elevation gain of 900 meters. The duration of the hike will be 8 hours and the whole trip will be around 11-12 hours long. Consequently, it is a requirement for this program to have prior mountaineering experience and a good physical condition.
