This is the most beautiful area I've seen in Bulgaria till now. The lakes are so amazing.And also the walk around them is really pleasent. The last two lakes are higher than the others and you'll need to be prepared for climbing but it is not so difficult - many people do it.
The region is great for camping - we made the camp near Sapareva Banya in the forest:)

Here is a web with more info about the lakes:

Address: Rila Mountain
Directions: on 15 km far from town Sapareva Banya( 85 from Sofia,160 km far from Plovdiv) there is a hunt called Pioneer.From that hunt starts a lift that goes to hunt Rila's lakes.Then you'll need around 4-5 hours to go around all of them

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
