Shirokolushki glacier is composed of volcanic rocks , slopes are covered with pine forests, and the ridge is bare . At the very top is marble slab , on which is written " Orpheus peak 2188 m DV of 29 June 1942 " , although the official name of cartographic top is Shirokolushki glacier .

There is a tourist route from the village of Broad Peak Shirokolushki to bow glacier or Orpheus, who takes about 5 hours. Walk up the road to the village of Gela . At National School of Folk Arts goes right up the stairs to the exit of a sharp bend of the road to Gela . Walk up to it and Kavroshilskata quarter turn right on the path that led to the Ilinden meadows ( 2ch. ) . Hence in monasteries and Gradishteto better delineated path is reached Khulna area . It climbs the ridge top . The road is dotted with oregano, black and red berries , with lush glades - truly colorful carpet.

Drew possible route - from Gela climb the green marking hut glaciers can also visit the homonymous cave. Departs on the new blue marking ( Gela - Dospat ) and reaches the crest red marking connecting with hut hut glaciers Perelik . From there to the summit and back - entirely in blue marking to Gela . At the top enjoy the distant horizon , peace ... and enjoyment of the mountain in its purest form.

Karluk ( Shirokolushki Snezhnik Orpheus ) is located five kilometers or so to the west . It is doubtful that means sacrificial blade or place of prayer - all karlatsite translate as snezhnitsi - Shirokolushka Batashki Gyumyurdzhinski .

The third route to the second highest peak in the Rhodopes is: Departs shortly before the barrier of division located on Mount Great Perelik who is the ruler of the whole mountain . Crosses by going near the fence of the division by small path and so the marked route to the chalet Ledenitsata . Thence marking the southern foot of the top where it aside for a few minutes you are on the highest point . On the way back you could climb a wooded natterjack hammer ( 2140 m ) and bare Shabalieva kaba ( 2087 m.)

Generally there is an option for climbing and Small Perelik but should take more time.

Locals peak is Karluk . With some of the other names you have to wonder .

Orpheus peak is one of the most beautiful Rhodope mountains. Due to its tapered shape local people called it Shilestata hammer. Attractive place for tourists.
