While you are in the village you can visit the Hotnitsa Waterfall (“Kaya Bunar”)
Located only 15 km. from the town of Veliko Tarnovo Bulgaria, the Hotnitsa Waterfall will show you one of nature’s incredible creations. After crossing a small wooden bridge, you will find yourself in a vast meadow, which will open you to an amazing view of the waterfall. You can easily reached the waterfall by car from the village of Hotnitsa or by turning off the main Sofia-Varna road near the village of Momin Sbor. From there the road goes to the village of Hotnitsa and descends right to the waterfall. If you visit this waterfall, you will certainly not be able to dispute the beauty of Bulgarian natural phenomena.
Next to the waterfall you can see a beautiful eco-path built in the area with many wooden bridges and stone steps.
Eco-trail “Hotnitsa waterfall”
To the left of the waterfall, clinging to the high rocks, begins the Hotnitsa eco-path. Although it’s not one of the big ones – its length is only about one and a half kilometres and it takes about half an hour to walk, but it is very interesting. The trail moves up the river and reaches the upper part of the canyon, walking the entire cascade of Khotnishki waterfalls along the Bohot river. The trail begins with stone steps uphill that reach a small landing just above the large waterfall. After that, the path continues further up, alternating stone and wooden steps and bridges.
