Full description
Area Golden Bridges - Mount Kamen del - Aleko Hut

Start the day with a short shuttle ride (30 minutes) to the Golden Bridges - the transition starting point -  where you will receive snowshoes and techniques to move with them. After walking on a beautiful, well-shaped forest trail for about thirty minutes, you'll reach the neat hut Momina Skala, built in a very picturesque place. After a short break, you will keep on reaching the main goal - Kamen Del peak (1862 m asl).
The path after the cabin becomes more steep, and vegetation more dense and varied. Just when you start to feel tired, you'll go over the wooded belt, a vast plateau known as "Vitoshko". Soon you will reach the peak Kamen Del - the highest point of today's transition. Your efforts will be rewarded with an unforgettable panoramic view of the capital Sofia, as you distinguish the golden domes of Al. Nevsky, the old TV tower, NPC, and in the distance the bleaching peaks of Stara Planina. Continue walking along the border of reserve Torfeno branishte towards Aleko hut, where the bus will wait and take you to Sofia. Walking time: 3.5 hours. If you are willing and able to climb the peak Black Peak (2,290 altitude) that will extend the time of the tour by 2 hours.
