Waterfalls in Bulgaria

Waterfall "Skoka", Kashina village, Pirin Mountain


The "Skoka" waterfall, near Kashina village is one of the biggest, most beautiful and most amazing sights in all of the Pirin Mountain. It is known among locals as "Skoko", because the wild waters of the river, after slowing their heady rush from the Pirin Mountain, make a headlong jump and fly down with a terrible force in the twenty-meter  chasm. The noise of the falling water echoes around like a thunder of a fading storm.

The Kashina village belongs to the municipality of Sandanski, Blagoevgrad region. It is located in the southern part of the Pirin Mountains. The village can be reached after starting from the main road from Sofia to Thessaloniki E 79, near the village of Novo Delchevo, Sandanski via the villages Spatovo, Hotovo, Lozenitsa, Melnik, Kurlanovo, Rozhen and Lyubovishte.

Up to Lyubovishte the road is asphalted, followed by 8 km of gravel road not maintained and in poor condition. Kashina is located 30 km northeast of the municipal center of Sandanski, 15 km from Melnik, 10 km from the “Rozhen” monastery.

To reach the falls follow the directing signs. It takes about 20 minutes.
