Dzhanka Saddle

Dzhanka Saddle

Dzhanka Saddle is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.346m (7,696ft) above the sea level, located on the Sofia and Blagoevgrad provinces border, in the central and highest regions of the Rila Mountains of Bulgaria. It’s one of the highest mountain roads of the country.

The road to the summit, located within the Rila National Park, is gravel and rocky. It’s impassable in winters. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 recommended. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep.  At the summit there’s a fire lookout tower.
