Alpine trolley ZipLine Chepelare

... from Katerina in Get to know Bulgaria! Visits 529 30 July, 2021

For lovers of extreme experiences, I highly recommend visiting the Alpine trolley ZipLine Chepelare! Three types of attractions will increase your adrenaline there - ZipLine 400 - SkyBike, ZipLine Chepelare and the Railway VIA FERRATA. They are located on the road from Asenovgrad to Chepelare, 2 km to the left before Chepelare (there are signs).

The first thing that will fascinate you is the view of Chepelare, Mechi Chal and Chaya river. The next thing that will definitely impress you is the clay house, handmade from straw, clay and sand, next to which there is a nice wooden gazebo.

ZipLine 400 – SkyBike

ZipLine 400 - SkyBike is a descent on a rope with special equipment, as a person's body is lying down, and the experience itself creates a feeling of flying. However, to get to the place of descent, you have to get on the special sky bike, which is attached to a rope, and to move, you have to turn the pedals boldly and move through the air. The view is amazing! The rope is 200 meters long. It passes over the Chaya river and is quite high. I am afraid of heights, and I expected that the flight would terrify me, but it turned out to be the bike. However, I obviously overcame all fears and even twice managed to get on the bike and fly twice. The height during the flight at its highest point is about 60 meters and the length of the rope - 400 meters. The speed that can be developed is up to 100 km / h, and it depends on the weight of the flying extremist - the heavier he is, the higher the speed he develops, with a maximum allowable weight of 130 kg. Together with the sky bike, this makes it the longest combined rope attraction in Bulgaria with a total of 600 m.

ZipLine Chepelare

ZipLine Chepelare is the so-called alpine trolley with a rope length of 165 m. The descent from it starts from a rock with a height of about 35 meters. In my opinion, it is more suitable for small children or those trying to gain courage for the bike and the longer rope for the flight. Otherwise, the feeling is again for flying, as the maximum speed that can be developed with it is 60 km / h, and the minimum allowable weight is 17 kg.

The Railway / VIA FERRATA

The third attraction is called The railway / VIA FERRATA. It is rock climbing on a rock with a height of 32 meters, and the route is of medium difficulty. It is also suitable for children. On-site safety equipment will be provided, with the option of climbing with an instructor or on your own.

The staff is extremely friendly, and I like to mention this because it is a rarity in Bulgaria, and in this case, people definitely managed to make our experiences there even more fun and memorable.
