Welcome to Jizeu Valley
One of the best short-hike destinations in the region, the Jizeu (Jisev, Geisev) Valley offers idyllic landscape around a series of seasonally overflowing, tree-lined lakes. The prettiest lakes are bracketed by two halves of the tiny traditional hamlet of Jizeu (pronounced Jee-sao), which has a wonderful, timeless atmosphere. An added thrill of a visit, albeit a potential logistical problem, is that there's no road, and access to the village footpath starts by bouncing over the gnashing river on a swaying suspension bridge. For those wondering about the wooden contraption that looks like a sentry box, marooned on the shore, this was the former way of crossing, thankfully now retired.
