In the Lozen Mountain

On a Saturday in early September we hiked in the nearby Lozen mountain, around the village of Lozen. Lozen is a very big and lively village, given its vicinity to the capital, on the one hand, and its lovely surroundings and clean mountain air, on the other hand. It is actually so big, that it consists of two quasi separate villages - Dolni Lozen (Lower Lozen) and Gorni Lozen (Upper Lozen). We have hiked, starting from one or the other parts of the village, many times; however, this time we decided to try something new - we began our climb from Gorni Lozen, went up to peak Small Lanina Mogila and then to Lanina Mogila, climbed down from the peak along a new to us trail, continued to Mt. Polovrak and from there climbed down to Dolni Lozen, where from we took the bus back to the other part of the village, where we had parked the car.
