Located in the western part of the circus between Urdinskiya Valley Maliovitsa valley cirque of the Seven Rila Lakes. Urdini six lakes and bear the following names : Dry , Fish , Triangle , botanical ( drowning ) and Little Big Panitza Panitza . They are drained numerous small streams, beautiful waterfalls are formed . Lakes are considered to be the beginning of Urdina River , a tributary of the Black Iskar River .

Lakes are relatively small - from 1 to 2.5 hectares. The smallest in size of them is Fish Lake , but it is the largest catchment area . Because it is located 500 meters southeast of the peak Damga , often referred Damgskiya lake.

Great Panitza is the most low-lying of the six lakes ( 2,278 m ), but in contrast, is the largest area ( 2.5 ha ) and volume . Dry Lake is situated at a high altitude - 2,375 meters , and its depth reaches about 5 meters. The deepest lake in the group is small Panitza ( 2,336 m ) with a depth of 7.6 meters and is located east of Fish Lake .

These lakes may not be as large as the nearby Seven Lakes , nor so well developed tourist , but at the expense of not inferior in beauty and mountain spirit. They are far from the main tourist routes in the mountains , and are hard to reach . So do not go unprepared , always carry a card. Closest huts are " Maliovitsa ", " Ivan Vazov " and " Vada " . Suitable scenic route to the lakes is to go against the tide of Urdina River that will take you right back where springs - Urdini lakes.

Really quiet and completely torn paradise without the crowds of tourists, with stunning views and scenery ! Just a few hours can be completely surrounded by will have ample time to rest and recharge spiritually ! Not accidentally declared a natural landmark of national and international importance.
