Description

The village of Rojak and its area have many places for hiking and outdoor activities. We offer you a day with a trek to the Royak’s rock monasteries, where Thracian people lived in 5th century. In 13th century this rocks have been used as rock monasteries from the hesychasts monks. This is a very energetic and mysterious place, which hides many secrets for archaeologists till now. Within a day we will make a trek to this mysterious rocks, will climb and explore very hard-reached caves where people lived, will enjoy the view from the plateau and in the end of our tour we will learn new technics of using alpine equipment to go down safety through the rocks. The climbing is for beginners there is no need to have experience in it. But anyway we will use all needed equipment to prevent any incidents. We depart Varna at 9 am in the direction of Dulgopol and more specifically the village of Royak. We will arrive around 10:00 am and will have to prepare the all needed equipment. When we are ready we will go to the end of the village of Royak, from where we take a dirt road through the field. After about 40 minutes walking we reach a forest area where there is also a tap. This is also the ideal place where we will stop to rest and familiarize ourselves with the inventory we will be handling. We give a briefing, fill the bottles with water and again go to the rock monasteries. We pass directly through the forest until we reach the foot of the rocky terrain. We make a safety system using the rope to make it safe to climb and start climbing 10 meters high rocks to get to some of the caves. Everyone will be secured with a rope and there is no danger of falling. We explore the area in detail and climb to the top of the plateau where we will have a picnic and enjoy the view. We gather new strength and head to the abseil point. We will decide where it will be best place to make it. We go down one by one using the newly acquired techniques to do so. After we’re done and recharged our batteries with the energy of this holy place, we make sure we’ve taken enough beautiful pictures, because it’s time to go back in Varna. A day filled with many emotions and knowledge, we hope of seeing you again soon for new adventures.
