"Rodopi Mountains/ Trigrad canyon" Bulgaria Off The Beaten Path Tip by AndreSTGT
Bulgaria Off The Beaten Path: 98 reviews and 175 photos
Our day in the Rodopi Mountains in Southern Bulgaria was probably the most adventurous of the entire Eastern Europe trip. We first visited the mildly interesting Bachkovo Monastery, then took the road from Smoljan deep into the mountains, the landscape here was gorgeous and the villages looked like straight out of the 18th century and this is were our road trip turned into an off-road adventure trip. The first obstacle on the road were fallen rocks. It needed the force of three healthy, young men (that was us) to push them off the road. Shortly after that we came to a wooden bridge over the river, unfortunately it had crashed down, so we had to take a detour through the relatively deep water. Fortunately we had a 4x4, otherwise we would have been stuck.
After a while we eventually reached a paved road which led us to the spectacular Trigrad canyon, a hiker's paradise in a remote mountain area.
