Winter Rila - Mechit

Days 3   Distance 21 km   Ascent 1220 m   Descent 1220 m

This three-day walk explores the Northern-Western part of Rila National Park. The area is strewn with high peaks (over 2500 m) that give it an Alpine appearance. 

The Govedartsi village is a perfect place to extend the walk with several days. It is a cross point of many trails: to Malyovitsa Hut, to Vada Hut, to Zekiritsa peak and to Ovanarsko area. It offers a nice accommodation at small family hoses.

Day 1: Walk from the village of Govedartsi to the Mechit hut along a wide road.
Day 2: The walk starts from the Hut Mechit and continues to a saddle on the main Malyovitsa ridge along so called “Royal road” that is an old high-mountain road. From this saddle it is possible to prolong the walk to one of the highest peaks near it: Budachki kamak or Golyam Mechit. However, this depends on the weather conditions and the snow cover at the moment.

Day 3: Walk from the hut Mechit to the Govedartsi village.  

  • Difficulty: The average difficulty is moderate. 
  • Accommodation: The hut are well-maintained, offer food and beverages. 
  • Transport:  There is public transport to the village of Govedartsi from and to Sofia. 
  • Security: The trail is totally secure. The area is served by the mountain rescue teams.
