The mountain is divided to four main parts by deep glacier-made valleys. These are the valleys of Iskar rivers, Rilska river, Mariza river. Another beautiful pieces of this mountain are its eyes - glacier lakes.
Rila is the natural setting for Bulgaria's most famous monastery - RILA MONASTERY, and the country's oldest winter resort - Borovets.
The ski resort sits at an altitude of 1350 m. 58 km of marked pistes cover the generally north facing slopes up to an altitude of 2560 m, with many runs terminating near the village centre allowing skiers to ski almost to their hotel door. The longest run is a gentle 12 km return to the resort along the maintenance road.
