The focus of this program is the beautiful peak Haramiata with his 2465 meter. Everyone has heard of the Seven Rila Lakes. In the area of their cirque, you'll notice the impressive 'Alpine Guardian' rising near the shores of the Bliznaka Lake.
Also known as the Black Rock or Hayduta, Haramiata is located in the Damga section of the Rila Mountains, on the ridge descending north from the area known as Razdela na Biloto near Damga peak.

Tour Itinerary

7:00 - departure from Sofia (Vasil Levski National Stadium) and transfer to Panichishte. Meeting point – gondola lift to Rilski Lakes Hut.
Before boarding the lift, we conduct a brief briefing and instructions for the group. We check the equipment, and we are ready for today's adventure.
The Rilski Lakes Hut is the starting point for our trek. From here, with a brisk pace, we head towards the peak. Our path will first lead us to the Icy Lake, frozen over, and the old hut of the Seven Rila Lakes, where we'll take a short break. The actual ascent begins, but without racing for athletic achievements, we'll conquer the elevation gain. The route is diverse, with steeper sections that we'll navigate carefully. As we ascend, the landscapes become increasingly beautiful, prompting us to pause for a moment. We take a deep breath and continue upwards.
And here we are, at the summit, which appeared so steep and challenging, yet it merely misled us with its intimidating pyramid shape. This is the time for photos and relaxation. Slowly and carefully, we begin our return journey back to the starting point.

Positive elevation gain of 380 meters with a duration of approximately 5 hours.
