With about 70 meters, Skakavishki's waterfall is the highest on the territory of this mountain. It is situated at 1750 meters above sea level and is formed by the waters of the river of the same name, which flows from the Skakavishko Lake. The waterfall is located in the Skakavishka valley, near the peak of Kabul, and about half an hour from the Skakavitsa hut. In general, repetitions, but obviously this word is in fashion in our chosen area.
The path leading to the waterfall is a real delight in the summer. Extremely rich in vegetation, the Skakavishka valley definitely deserves attention. The path is part of a century-old forests of white fir, then goes outdoors, where you can encounter a lot of beautiful and rare flowers - a pet cross, a Vitosha Tulip and others. Keep an eye on the trail, but there is a river passing nearby, and there may be wet areas. Then there will be little effort, because to get to the bottom of the waterfall, we have to go through the rocky terrain. But this is a small part of our journey, so we should not worry - the purpose is justified.
The Skakavishki waterfall, seen from below, falls from a magnificent rock and spreads its waters beautifully. On our right hand, Kabul rises - a highly rounded peak with a height of 2531 meters. To the left, sheer rock walls close this end of the valley, passing through only the river - and in one direction! The streams are poured on the cool stone, they draw thin water threads and pass away, while countless transparent drops bounce the sunlight and form a barely visible, airy arc. The place is accessible and terribly beautiful, so it is no wonder that it is quite visited.
How do we get to ?
As mentioned above, the Skakavitsa waterfall is about half an hour away from the hut. It is most convenient to go to Panichishte resort with a private car or public transport - in this case, these are "busy" tours at the bus station in Dupnitsa (located in the same building with the railway station of the town!) And transported to Sapareva Banya. From there, we take other boutiques or taxis to get to Panichishte or to Pionerska Chalet.
From both places the trails to the Skakavitsa hut are marked with stripe markings and signs, and the transition takes about two hours. Go through a forest, here and there, dotted with meadows. Once we get there, we can rest briefly and "locate" the waterfall that is visible from the hut's terrace. The distance to the target is taken fast, the terrain is not heavy - there is only one slight climb in the middle and another at the foot of the waterfall itself. It is interesting to note that Skakavitsa is the oldest hut in our mountains - built in the distant 1922. Unfortunately the original building has not survived to this day but this does not prevent the present being one of the many pleasant and accessible places in Rila. Moreover, a marked trail next to it is reached for about an hour and from Rila Lakes Chalet. That is, there is nothing to prevent the area of Skakavitsa from being visited and returning from the Seven Lakes - an idea that will definitely enrich the walk.
