  • How left us by the company RILA to the foot of the lifts bring shuttle and practically went throughout the day between and around the 7 Lakes. The lift costs €9 for the round trip and the trip takes approx. 20 minutes. The paths are therefore at least sturdy footwear is advisable partly stony and steep. A variety of paths runs through the area where you should walk anyway on the vantage point. In good weather one has a magnificent view and is also good at the meadows at the Lakes to the rest or a picnic to lie down. On the mountains, there is no Verpfelgungsmöglichkeit, so you should bring anything yourself. You can drink water directly from the lakes or filling his water bottle. If the weather is right, you should let the Rila Lakes don't miss out!

Left by tourists will be August Burger, is ideal for September.
