St. George falls
Dear friends of "Photo moments", let's go hunting for waterfalls!
I present you the St. George waterfall, which is located in the middle of the picturesque Rhodopes on the road between the villages of Gornoslav and Oreshets.
How to get to St. George falls?
If you are traveling from Asenovgrad to Kardzhali, watch for a turnoff to the right after Cherven.
Take the road to the village of Gornoslav.
About 2 kilometers after Gornoslav (about 3 minutes by car) on the road to Oreshets, you will find a wide turnoff to the right.
The place looks like this.
The point is marked in Google Maps and can be set to your navigation.
The turnoff is indicated by a yellow sign on which the distance to the waterfall is written - 250 meters.
The dedicated parking lot is wide and you can leave your car because you won't need it.
The trail leading from the parking lot to the waterfall is very clearly marked and you really can't go wrong. In a minute you will have reached the waterfall.
This trail is suitable for all ages!
Or maybe it's more correct to tell you that you will end up above St. George's Falls.
The view from here is great – no doubt!
But here comes the turn of the surprise! After all, this is "Photo Moments" - so there will be surprises!
This is the main road winding between the villages of Gornoslav and Oreshets, and central (at the bottom) of the image is the parking lot where you left your cars.
After looking at Saint George, return to the starting position without getting into your cars, but walk along the road (in the direction of Gornoslav - Oreshets) for a few more minutes, so that you arrive at the place where this photo moment was taken.
Now turn right and you'll see the entrance to the secret passage!
This is the place from where you will reach the waterfall itself by a "secret path" so that you can feel its life-giving splashes on you.
I will explain why it is a secret - firstly, the path is not marked, secondly, it is known to few, and even those who know it give up, and thirdly - there is no real "path", so you have to make your own way to the waterfall.
There are many fallen trees and be extra careful!
But it is very beautiful and in minutes you will be under the waterfall!
On the stones you will find yourself right under the waterfall and you can take great photo moments to remember.
This secret path is more difficult to navigate due to the many fallen trees and is not recommended for small children and people with limited mobility.
The two videos I shot from St. George waterfall will tell you perfectly how beautiful the place is!
What can be visited nearby?
About 4.6 kilometers from the St. George waterfall (about 7 minutes by car) you will find the Oreshets panoramic site.
11 kilometers from the St. George waterfall (about 18 minutes by car) you will find a rock bridge near the village of Mostovo.
I wish you an exceptional and impressive walk!
