    The tour takes approximately 3-4 hours, depending on the physical condition, he is not particularly difficult but also not easy. Sometimes it goes steeply uphill, but climbing it is not necessary. Anyone who has no health problems that can go the way. But the view from the panoramic point Eurike on Smolyan are not really spectacular, the waterfalls itself. It smells wonderful after spruce. The way marking could be better in some places. At best you previously interested in the Info Center at the beginning of the forest road.

    If you want to see the biggest waterfall and stunning observation deck-be comfortable shoes, drinking water, good mood, free time and patience))). But all the pitfalls that can be there to see it. Adds experiences almost no tourists, there is an impression that nobody around for miles-just you and nature. During the walks (and we spent 4 hours) 5-6 met the same adventurous. Young children and people will be hard, especially in hot weather.

    The hike has made us a lot of fun. It took about 3.5 hours for this. The path is well signposted and untreated. The waterfalls and the views are very much value. May and June as the best time to have recommended the locals as the waterfalls are full then.

    Great place In the western part of Smolyan, heading towards the Mugla village, is one of the most picturesque natural landmarks in the area of the Western Rhodopes – “The Waterfalls Canyon”. A newly constructed eco-trail of the same name takes you to each of the waterfalls. The trail starts at the Soskovtchto reserve at the end of the Smolyan Sredok Quarter and its length is approximately 6 km. The Elenska river winding through the forest, where the eco-trail is situated, with its small wooden bridges in its higher and steeper part, forms some of the most beautiful waterfalls in Bulgaria. The largest waterfall is called after the mythical musician Orpheus and its height is 68 meters. At the top of the eco-trail there is a panoramic platform offering a magnificent view of Smolyan and the mountain. The first big waterfall is Ropkata. Its water has carved a whole in the rock, giving it its name. From there, the mountain waters flow down into what looks like cauldrons. This is the name of the next waterfalls – the Cauldrons (Kazanite). Up in the canyin the water passes through the Heart (Sartseto). Followed by the equally beautiful Cascades, where the streams fall on small rock terraces. Красиво място, подходящо за 2-3 часов планински поход
