Mount Vitosha is one of the most adored and visited mountain in Bulgaria. It is the first  officially declared Nature Park on the Balkans to protect alpine meadows, century-old forests and peat bogs. The dome-shaped mountain is crisscrossed by many walking trails, but the most scenic area is the Plateau and the highest peak named Cherni Vrah (2290m/7625ft.) Come with us on one of the most iconic routes makes use of the loop hiking trail around Aleko Hut. You will cross typical for the mountain stone rivers, make yourway close to the Peat Reserve and ascend to the highest peak. Throughout the way your companions will be high moutain birds and their melodic songs. The alpine zone is a home of the elusive Balkan Chamois (Wild Mountain Goat) and herds of Roe Deers. Along the way you will have a chance to admire and photograph rare and beautiful flowers as the Vitosha Tulip and various orchids. The descending walk is equilly astonishing with panoramic views of Vitosha’s dense forests, Sofia city and the Balkan Mountains outlining the horizon. The hiking path passes along Goliam and Malak Rezen peaks before gradually plunging down to the initial starting point of the hike.
