Price comment  Price:

Another waterfall named " Skaklya " is located in the Iskar Gorge , near the village of Gara Bov . Tall and powerful , he is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in our beautiful country. He was a favorite place for recreation of Ivan Vazov who visited him often.

The waters of the falls descend from impressive eighty meters in height sheer cliff edge and then broken down into several rock platforms that form the rungs amazingly properly cut into the body of the rock massif . The height of all his steps generally one hundred and twenty meters . It is believed that " Skaklya " is the fourth highest waterfall in Bulgaria , the largest is over Praskaloto hut "Paradise" . Its waters are not as lush as in the past , and sometimes dry , so the best time to visit is in the spring.

It can be reached by Vazov green path . It was built in 1972 and in 2007 was renovated and improved. From these places Vazov his inspiration for his works "From Minor Stara Planina " , which mentions the nearby village Zasele, " Grandpa Yotso watching ."

Trail itself is rich with wonderful places to rest and eat. There are two ends and the bottom is near Gara Bov - from the main road there is a sign to mark where it is eco- trail. The upper end can be reached by leaving a turnoff to the village of ' planting' and fifteen minute ride on steep turns with the car reaches the center of the village, where they wait for another plate with instructions .
