Veykata (Twig) with its 1,463 m is the highest peak in the eastern Rhodope ridge Gyumyurdzhinski glacier , located on the territory of Bulgaria . In the same ridge is the highest peak in the Eastern Rhodopes Orlitsa , but it is in Greece . Veykata peak is the southernmost geographical point of Bulgaria . To the southernmost point of Bulgaria - Mount Veykata ( 1,463.3 m ) can be reached as specified route from the village Chakalarovo .

Another option is to start from the village of Gorno Kupinovo . At the end of the village is abandoned outpost. It leaves dirt road that winds up and after 4 km. leads hut juniper meadow. If you want to upload the drive to the lodge , it must be off-road . The building is very decent , no electricity , need some repair to replace some pipes and conditions would be excellent. For now generally seen previously called groups of companies in the area, but in the future I hope to work as a real cabin. The array of Gyumyurdzhinski Snezhnik has retained its virgin nature and biodiversity.

The climb up Mount Veykata of this cabin is an attractive option because more time moving along the boundary of the ridge , from where the view to Bulgaria and Greece are impressive. Can the lodge to grab a dirt road 200 meters above it , which at one point leave and climbs the ridge trail . Up the trail is very nice and for 30-40 min to reach peak Yuchbunar .

From there it runs along the border , passes another tip and reaches peak Veykata (trail from the hut is about 2.30 hours) .
