The Beginning: Climb the Mountain by Chairlift
The weather wasn't really good at the beginning. It was raining and so foggy when we were on the chairlift. It takes you a lot closer to the lakes without too much walking. Remember, the chairlifts are open and it could be very cold during winter. Imagine how cold it was especially when you could only stay in outdoor for 30 minutes under this kind of weather condition... but not to worry! half an hour later you will realise it was totally worth it.

How amazing it is!
The Highlight of the Tour: Frozen 7 Rila Lakes
Seven Rila Lakes are no doubt the main point of the whole day tour. If you are visiting the lakes in wintertime, what you are going to see are most likely some frozen lakes and snow everywhere. The view is still spectacular though! Would you be able to identify all 7 lakes from our pictures? We certainly can't!
