MAZALAT REFUGE AND THE SINGING ROCKS

June 15-16

Perched right on top of the mountain's main ridge, Mazalat refuge is the very embodiment of that fairy-tale house we've all dreamed of. A small and reliable fortress, surrounded by the majestic massifs of The Old Mountain, it shelters us from the fierce winds and storms. We are always greeted there by welcoming guardians, warmth, a family-like atmosphere and absolutely great food!

It is no coincidence that Mazalat is the proud winner of the "Refuge of the Year 2015" award!

Within two days, we will visit this great place and, of course, we will not forget to pay tribute to the natural phenomenon of the Singing Rocks.

ITINERARY

Day one

Partizanska Pesen refuge – Mazalat refuge - Wolf's Head Peak - The Singing Rocks
9:00 a.m. - group meeting at the Partizanska Pesen refuge.
After checking the equipment, we head among picturesque oak forests to the ridge of the Balkan mountain. At first our path is flat, wide and strewn with leaves, but soon we begin to climb up a slight incline which unlocks for us the main ridge and panoramic views all the way to Buzludzha and Shipka far on the horizon!
In the company of these monuments of history, watching us from afar, we make rapid progress and very soon - in the early afternoon - we arrive at the Mazalat refuge. We settle in our rooms and have a bite before we move on.
Those who want will be able to stay and rest in the refuge and the rest of us will head to the Singing Rocks!
On our way we'll climb the Wolf's Head peak, walk along the ridge and stop by the Rusovatets peak.
After recharging our batteries with the energy of the surrounding beautiful landscaps, we will head back to the refuge for a well deserved rest and a delicious meal!

Day two

A typical Sunday morning...we won't be in any rush to leave! Well, some people might get up early for the sunrise after all…but even they won't want to leave the welcoming refuge at all!
