Madan is a mountainous town in Bulgaria, situated in the Yellow Share of the Rhodopi mountains. It is a part of the Ardino’s ridge, sloping down to the northeast between the rivers Arda and Vurbitsa. In the central part of the Yellow Share rise the peaks Butchovitsa (1404 m), Veternitsa (1372 m) and Petrovitsa (1309 m). The end of the ridge is Alada peak (1241 m). From all sides the Yellow Share is separated by mountain-spurs, whose segmentations are gradually sloping down and vanishing in the valleys of the rivers. The river system of the region is presented by the basins of the upper reaches of some of the longer rivers – to the north the basin of the Arda River with the headers Elhovska and Chepinska Rivers.
Along the wide mountain ridges enclosed by the valleys of the Rivers Cherna, Big and Small River, dark-green forests of tall pine-trees and spruce are succeeding each other. Here and there you could see beech-trees, vast meadows, small valleys, rocky piles, and again forests and meadows. In the summer the meadows are coloured by flourishing flowers and spices, the forests give out a sweet smell of mushrooms. The mountain is abundant of strawberries, raspberries, blueberries – heavy and fragrant.
