We’ll start from a small forest, which will be changed by grass and stones. Many people call Chepun “The naked mountain”. The ride to the top of Chepun will be 1.5 hours. The peak is called Petrovski krust, where you can see ruins of an ancient Thracian temple and a chapel, dedicated to st. Peter. The mountain was a sacred place for the people between the Late Iron Age and the Early Middle Ages.
When we get to the top we can rest a bit and have a quick lunch, which we will have to bring with us.
From the peak Petrovski krust – ride over the stones of the mountain and reach the village of Golemo Malovo. We’ll pass the marshes of Aldomirovtsi, which is a protected area for the nesting grounds of many birds like the ruff, little gull, white stork, and great crested grebe. Our ride will be below the hills where Bulgarian soldiers defended the Unification of Bulgaria in 1885 and pushed the enemies back to their territories in Serbia. After the village of Vasilovtsi, we’ll ride our bikes in a calm forest. Below the Popov peak, we’ll stop to visit an abandoned monastery “Saint Nicola”, dated in XIX century. From there we’ll reach again the village of Golemo Malovo.
We’ll pass an old airfield and the marshes of Dragoman. If we have luck, we’ll see some endemic species, which you can see only in Bulgaria and the Balkan peninsula.
After we arrive back to the car you will be transported back to Sofia.
