Midžor peak

A dangerous road to Midžor peak

Midžor is an international high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.142m (7,027ft) above the sea level, situated on the border between Bulgaria and Serbia.

Nestled in the Balkan Mountains, a rough 4x4 road climbs up to the ridge in between MIdzhur and Oba summits. It’s very steep and dirty. This road is very hard to be passed even with well equipped SUV and it is very dangerous. After rain, even a single rainfall, conditions of the road can be challenging. At the summit you can find a border stone between those two countries.

Expect dense fog often. The road reaches the border area and it is strongly forbidden to reach this area even by foot, because this is an external EU border in between Bulgaria and Serbia and the border control is very strong. A special permit is required to be obtained from border police, to reach the peak by foot. Vehicles are strongly forbidden. The pass links Vidin Province (Northwestern Bulgaria) and Zaječar District (Eastern Serbia).
