The sublime seems woven into the very core of alpine mountains, and you will find it in abundance in the Rila and the Pirin, Bulgaria’s highest mountain ranges. Malyovitsa, the 2,729-metre high peak in the Rila, is the embodiment of natural drama. Its sharp rocky outline dominates the landscape and provides one of the most demanding climbing routes in Bulgaria, including a 124-meter high rock wall. Blending beauty and danger, Malyovitsa is considered the epitome of Bulgarian mountaineering and is both loved and feared by climbers. The natural landscape around is equally alluring, with the pristine Malyovishki and Elenski Lakes.
