Belmeken Hut

Belmeken Hut is located in Rila National Park, at 2224 meters of altitude, on the shores of Ravnivrushko Lake and in the foot of Mount Belmeken (2626 m). It was originally built in 1932. The hut is electrified and can host up to 30 people in dormitories. A limited choice of food and drinks is available.

 

The hut is accessible from the holiday area of the town of Kostenets – 4,5 hours along a marked trail, or from Belmeken Dam – 2,5 hours. An asphalt road leads up to the dam, located at 2000 meters above the sea.
