This is the 4th highest peak of Montenegro and the highest peak that is entirely inside Montenegro and perhaps the most famous of all the mountains in the country. We climbed the well marked trail from the Black Lake and took around 3 hrs to...More

In the summer, be sure to leave very early in the morning, as it's very crowded on the top later in the day. And wear some decent hiking shoes, most of the visitors were climbing up there in ordinary sneakers and that's just an accident...More

We were quite in doubt wether to do the hike or not, as most of the reviewers here rate it as a scary and super hard one. The reason was that we only had our running shoes, the forecast predicted a thunder at 13 oclock...More

If you ask Montenegro people about this peak, no question, most of them will tell you that this mountain and Bobotov kuk are national pride of their country. With the reason, I must admit. The hike itself (no matter direction you take) is stunning. Scenery,...More

I was hiking with a park ranger from New Zealand and even he couldn't believe the wide range of geological formations in the park and its sheer massive beauty. It reminded me of scenes straight out of Lord of the Rings. The last 20 meters...More

I generally hike on my own, since I do work as a mountain guide for a local company from Sarajevo, Bosnia called Green Visions. If you need any help or guiding assistance, let me know. Greetings.
