Route from Bezbog hut to Tevno lake

The road to Tevno Lake starts from the Bezbog hut, which is easily accessible and is the ideal starting point for this route. The trail is well marked and leads through majestic mountain scenery, offering unforgettable views of Pirin and the surrounding lakes. The hardest part is up to Popovo Ezero, after that it becomes easier. Up to here, the duration is more or less an hour and a half. Next is a climb to the Samodiv Lakes, going right and following the blue markings. Once you reach them, a climb up rocks and moraines begins, which is not difficult, but requires a lot of attention. You will reach the Left Kraledvorska porta, and after a little more effort and climbing, you will have a fabulous view of Tevno Lake.

Kamenishke Lakes

The Kamenish Lakes, located in the valley of the Bistrica River, are a group of about 10 lakes, but most of them are not permanent. They are also known as Belemets Lakes and are located at the foot of the Jano and Chengelchal peaks. They are located at an altitude of 2306 and 2307 meters. The largest of them is Dolno Kamenishko lake, which has an area of 24 decares. These lakes offer unique opportunities for exploring and observing nature.
