The route of the " Voevodin dol - Skaklya " takes about 5 hours. The route is relatively tough , so it's nice to be well equipped and your group have experienced tourists. The starting point of the transition is in the picturesque gorge Vratsata where starts climbing through woodland Voevedin dol. Ravine is generally dry, but after heavy rains it runs wildly creek .

Left leaning over the valley sheer rock wall on which are noted the entrances of many speleological structures , including Voevodinata and Radanov cave goats . There are two places to rest, after the second of which begins a steep climb to the ridge .

Hence, the distance to the cliff from which descends Skaklya (141 m) , the highest intermittent flowing waterfall in the Balkans, is very small .
