  • Beautiful of half-day excursion. Much nice to see / photograph. And it goes to wooden stairs steeply upwards. Brave find a few places to swim. The highest point, it either goes on high to the highest peak of the Rhodopes (Perelik, 2195м, 2.5 3 HR Marsh, the hut at the foot of the mountain offers strengthening), or a different path down, where are some places with very nice panoramas. The starting point is 2 km away from Smolyan.

  • The hike takes about 3-4 hours and it's circular. We found the place with google maps ("canyon falls"), that led us to a place where you can park your car. You can keep going with your car or walk to ...  more »
  • Walk in the Woods in the company of running water a few meters and that generates repeating falls is definitely an enjoyable and healthy activity. Summer is not the best time to enjoy this landscape because the water flow is obviously lower but the Woods and water are still a nice remedy for heat. The climb takes some effort but nothing too prohibitive for a healthy person and a little like walking! At the top you can choose whether to return to the Valley following backwards the same pathway to climb or follow another path (indicated by the signs for Smolyan) that is developed entirely in the forest (so no Fallsview), where one will encounter some sights and that he will reunite with the first at one of the wooden bridges that you had met during the ascent. Before the start of the falls, there is also a structure that serves as a tourist information centre where we stopped more out of curiosity than necessity and, incredibly, we were asked to pay for the information we got about the attractions of region.

  • 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
