The Rila Monastery

8:00 riding available for experienced riders

Migration starts from open meadows and wide dirt road going into the dense mountain landscapes and ancient trees, crossing clear streams, it is on the slopes of Mount Rusaliite enters the mountain trails with beautiful forest scenery and out of the wide meadow Karakachan huts. After a short break the trail continues to the area Vachidol entering the last belt of forest among old Muri, after entering into the realm of squats and juniper. Reaching the heart of Vachidol, the road becomes more difficult, it is between the sea and bushes to just the forest lake. Then it began climbing the steep mountain slopes with devilishly beautiful views. Just before the tip comes a small place with pure mountain spring. At this point there was probably a medieval village, because there are foundations and remains of stone houses and probably it is given the name of the locality Rusaliite. From the crest of the summit is very close. After starting downhill riverbed Iliina and descent from the summit of the mountain in a beautiful valley. Paths already become easy and pass into a wide road and soon arrive at the gates of the Rila Monastery.
