   Historically peak Chumerna is connected with Panayot Hitov and his detachment. About the peak he wrote: “When you come to Chumerna in front of your eyes appears a great view… You can see Elena, Bebrovo and Veliko Tarnovo, you can see Gabrovo. When you look to the south you can see plains and many rivers, you can also take a look at Danube to see ridges and bushes, forests bathed in the golden rays of the Bulgarian sun; you can see the red tiles between the green plains, white houses are peering between the plum-trees, walnut-trees, pear-trees, morello-trees; the rivers are shining like silver girdles”.
