The longest mountain hike in Bulgaria - Kom-Emine, organized by the Bulgarian Tourist Federation (BTF), starts today and continues until August 8.

For the 70th time, hikers will cover 650 km in 20 days along the ridge of the Balkan Mountains - from the Kom peak to Cape Emine on the Black Sea coast. Each of them has had months of training to take part in the challenge. The BTF provides a licensed mountain guide, an accompanying car and everything needed to safely complete the route.
