Hello we are interested in visiting Musala but we are a party who would find long hiking and walking difficult, can we get a cable car up there to marvel at this beautiful spot. We would be coming for the day and travelling from the region of Harmanli and Haskovo please advise how we get there thanks
The closest you can get with a cable car is about a 3-hour hike away from the peak itself. First, there is a really easy less-than-1-hour hike to Musala hut - the hut is at the same height as the place you get off the cable car (2389m). After that you start going up - there is a bit more difficult 1.5-hour hike to the Icy Lake Shelter (Заслон Леденото езеро), which is at 2720m. And after that comes the steepest part - the last 205m which take about half an hour.
