Stob Pyramids Tours

Stob Pyramids are a unique series of sandstone rock formations located in the foothills of the Rila mountain range southwest of Sofia. Stretching over 7.5 hectares, these pyramids — some dumpy, some spiky — cluster together up the hillsides and have been eroded over the centuries by wind and snow. Reaching up to around 39.5 ft (12 m) with bases of up to 131 ft (40 m), they come in multiple shades of brown and are more numerous on the southern slopes of the slopes than the north.

First stop for information and directions to the naturally formed pyramids is the visitor center in the ancient village of Stob. A way-marked ecotrail departs into the countryside from nearby St Procopius Church and winds up through lush meadows to the pyramids in around an hour; continue following the trail uphill for fantastic views looking down over their serrated peaks. As winter brings snow, rain and mud to this rural corner of Bulgaria, plan to visit Stob Pyramids in summer.

The Rila Mountains make a spectacular day trip from Sofia for their wild landscapes, hiking around the Seven Rila Lakes and the chance to visit Rila Monastery, founded in 927 by a hermit monk.

Practical Info
