Musala peak

Musala peak
map Musala peak

Musala is the highest peak in Bulgaria and the entire Balkan Peninsula, standing at 2,925 m. It is just 8 metres higher than its better known neighbour, Mount Olympus in Greece.
>The name derives from Mus Allah, "the mountain of Allah", being so named during the period when Bulgaria was under Ottoman ruling. The old name of the mountain is Tangra.

Musala is situated within the Rila National Park. It is noted for its rich flora, including species such as Macedonian Pine and Bulgarian Fir in the forests on its middle slopes, and fauna; it is one of the easiest places in Europe to see the wallcreeper. The easiest climb is by a straightforward footpath from the ski resort of Borovets, 10 km to the north; there is also a Gondola lift from Borovets to the Yastrebets peak at 2,369 m altitude and several mountain chalets. From Yastrebets it is a one hour hike to the Musala chalet (2,430m), from which the ascent to the summit takes another 1.5 to 2 hours via the shelter Everest, the highest mountain hut in Bulgaria. At the summit there is a weather station.
