Rappelling in a wild cave

The cave "Elata" is located in the Ponor Mountain that is part of the western Balkan Mountains. Starting point of the adventure is town of Svoge. The cave is in the vicinity of village of Zimevitsa, situated on a high plateau above the Iskar Gorge - 60 kilometers on the north of Sofia.

"Elata" is relatively small, but at the same time very beautiful cave. You can go in there by sliding an alpine rope through ”a vertical chimney”. Then comes a large hall with bizarre underground formations and climbing down to a small underground lake. The way back to the sun is again on an alpine rope or a cave ladder ...

The adventure to cave Elata includes also a short hike in the vicinity of peak Sarbenitsa, from where a magnificent view of the entire western Balkan Mountains reveals. In the summer you can continue the trip from the cave by mountain bike and descend to the scenic valley of the Iskretska River. In the winter, when there is a heavy snow, the cave can be reached by skiing as the way back downhill is on northern slope and untouched snow ...

The personal equipment necessary for cave Elata is a pair of clothes about which you do not worry, if they get dirty or frayed by the rocks ...
