After taking the lift from Borovets my friends from Moscow and I walked to the Musala summit via the Musala hut. It was a Sunday and beautiful weather so quite a few people did the same thing. It is an easy walk and we did it in 1 hour 40 minutes from Musala hut. There is another hut just under the peak which is very nice where you can stay overnight. On our way down Galina and I went for a swim in a lake a couple of kilometers from Musala hut. Cold (14 C), but very refreshing. The Musala hut is old and offers very simple accomodation, but the hosts (Christina, her husband and their 3 year old son) are very nice and makes great soup! In the evening we walked up to the herd of horses who grasses in the neighbourhood and, allthough a little shy, accepted our old bread.
