Golyam Perelik

Golyam Perelik (Bulgarian: Голям Перелик [ɡoˈʎam pɛrɛˈlik]) is the highest peak in the Rhodope Mountains, situated 19 km to the west of Smolyan. It makes the Rhodopes the seventh highest Bulgarian mountain range after Rila, Pirin, Stara Planina, Vitosha, Osogovo and Slavyanka. The peak is easily accessible, but currently[when?] cannot be climbed because a unit of the Bulgarian Army is stationed in its vicinity.
