Sightseeing: Trigrad Gorge

Trigrad Gorge - Pictures Of Bulgaria
Location: The Trigrad Gorge is a breathtaking natural phenomenon just outside the village of the Trigrad. The incomparable karst formation has 250-meter high walls on both sides of the narrow asphalt road to Trigrad. To many (including ourselves!) the Trigrad Gorge is the most impressive natural sight in Bulgaria and there is little doubt that it is worth the 3-hour ride from Sofia.

About this place: The most impressive forms of the gorge lie about 3km north of Trigrad and the only road connecting the Trigrad people to the rest of the world passes frightfully beneath the vertical rocks with just a small patch of sky visible from below. The karst formations have been carved by the Trigrad river itself, which goes underground here, meanders in the Devils Throat cave, creating some 18 roaring waterfalls there and appears again on the surface shortly before one reaches Trigrad.
The area of the Trigrad Groge is home to about 150 caves and appeals with equal strength to nature-lovers, climbers and speleologists all over the year. Only two of these, the Devils Throat and the Yagodinska caves, however, are open to ordinary tourists. Another cave, the so-called Haramiiska, welcomes only the bravest who, after signing a declaration that the organizers are not to be held liable in case of an incident, are dropped by ropes deep into the caves throat.
