[Bulgaria] Raiskoto Praskalo Waterfall

Raiskoto Praskalo Waterfall
From the Paradise rocks in the Central Stara planina descends the highest waterfall in Bulgaria – Raiskoto praskalo. It is located under the Bulgarian natural reserves – Djendema. Among the inaccessible precipices, rock ridges, and marvelous nature is located this Bulgarian beloved beauty. Raiskoto praskalo waterfall is the highest waterfall not only in Bulgaria, but also on the whole Balkan Peninsula. Its height is 124,5 m. It collects its water from the “eternal” snow-drift located on the very
peak of Botev, to the South of the peak, to jump down the Raiskite Skali rocks – not far away from the Rai hut. It gives the beginning of a small tributary of Byala River, the watershed of which is a part of the Dzhendema reserve and covers the southern slopes of the peaks of Botev, Malak Yumruk, Mlechniya Chal and Zhultets.

It takes as left tributaries Dzhendemski Dol and the gullies of Golyama and Malka Bazovitsa rivers. Raiskoto Praskalo is also called Kalofersko Praskalo (chute). The magnificent view captures the tourists. And no matter that a lot of people have visited it, the waterfall and the place, itself, have preserved their untouched and clean aspect.
