It drains out Lakes of Seven, we know well. The river flows through a picturesque valley, shaped as a canyon. We'll stay here having a coffee or tea. It will be a wonderful feeling for everyone to breathe in the coolness of waterfall, called "Djermanski". We quit the valley of the river, to climb up mountain hostel, called Rilski ezera, situated upon the ridge, called "Suhia Tchal", above one of the undermost-situated lakes of Seven – Dolnoto Ezero. From this position we'll start on a tour toward "The 7 Rila lakes" – the biggest and the most famous lake group on the Balkan Peninsula. Here we provide sleeping accommodation and after having a tour of the Lakes of Seven, we'll ask you into dinner.

Day 3. After having a breakfast, we'll climb up the scenic peak called "Haramiata" (2 465 m above sea level) – a sharp rocky peak, fearfully towered above the circus of Bliznaka Lake westwards, and "Panitzata" lake in the circus of lakes called Chernoiskarskite. The foot of the peak is sunk down the lake called Bliznaka. You may see here, as clear as crystal, the picture of the peak reflects upon the lake, called Trilistnika. After having a headlong climbing up the ridge, we'll get to saddleback, named Razdela (2 410 m above sea level). It's a junction of many mountain paths. Staying at this position, we'll have an opportunity to overlook the ridge of Malijovitza. Then we'll march eastwards upon narrow rocky edge, which makes an interesting connection between "Razdela" saddleback and mighty mountain spur, called "Zeleni rid" toward the Valley of Cherni Iskar River. We'll get to open-country called "Yavorova poliana". We'll organize for you a picnic, when the lunchtime arrives. Everyone is invited upon the glade near the river called "Urdina". The old-age pinewood nearby, we'll attract you. Enjoy the silence filled with fulfilment! It's the end of our journey! Departing to Sofia.
