hike to Durmitor in Montenegro

NP Durmitor (2.525) is the most magnificent among the mountain giants of the south-Slavic countries. This breathtaking national park was formed by glaciers and is traversed by rivers and underground streams. Along the Tara river canyon, which has the deepest gorges in Europe, the dense pine forests are interspersed with clear lakes and harbor a wide range of endemic flora. The massif has 48 peaks above 2,000 m and 18 glacial lakes, scattered over mountain massif and Jezerska Povrs plateau. The lakes add significantly to the beauty of the mountain and have been nicknamed Gorske Oci, meaning Eyes of the Mountain.

With about 2000 km of marked trails, it is hard to pick the favorite ones. But here are some that we would recommend:

Pitomine – Black Lake loop – Zminje lake – Pitomine

Length-13 km, Category – Easy, Duration – 6 hours, Total vertical climb – 150 m

Pitomine – Black lake – Mali Medjed – Black lake loop – Pitomine
