Departure from the center of Belogradchik. The road goes a little up and enters an undulating section. Mind the first important deviation on the right where the blue splits with the red. Go down across the forest. Then it comes the second important crossroad in the forest. For Lepenitsa cave and Izvos turn on the right. Pass through the acacia forest and then go down till you get to a perpendicular road.
To Lepenitsa cave (amazing natural miracle) turn right and then again sharply right uphill till you get just below the beautiful rock formations. From there follow the path that cuts the right-hand side of the rock (ups and downs) till you get to Lepenitsa cave. It’s worth even if some pushing is needed. The way back is the same.
To Izvos turn left, then right and then left again. You reach Izvos village on almost flat road with a little descent and in the village you can taste the magnificent spring water coming out of the Old Oak.
