Mountain Lakes

Location ID: 2615

The Seven Rila Lakes are undoubtedly one of the most notable and impressive natural phenomena in Bulgaria, and on the Balkan Peninsula, a dream-like location not to be missed. Their beauty have touched everyone who has visited them.

The Seven Rila Lakes, located in the northwestern Rila Mountains, are glacial lakes, scattered at the foot of a massive cirque that includes 3 mountain peaks. The lakes have been named for their shapes and qualities, and their intensely blue, crystal clear waters are surrounded by lush green grass in the summer, and snow covered, steep rocky banks in the winter, giving this location different varieties of appearance that can bring diverse, but equally astounding appeal to the eye, and the camera.
