|justahiker||Ascent from Montenegro side |
Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2015
|We did ascent form Montenegro side, from Plav area and Bogicevica summer houses. The road to Bogicevica (from Plav) is about 16 kilometers long, which of 7-8 kilometers of not particularly good dirt road. |
Trail itself is very accessible and well visible. However this is very long hike from this side (about 25km), but most of the time fairly gentle access, since ascent is gradual. After short while you start, you cross the border between Montenegro and Kosovo and most of the hike spending in Kosovo.
The hike was tiring but great. Views were magnificent, especially on Albanian side toward Prokletije mountain range.

|Djeravica's main problem has to do with its access. There's quite a very rough jeep trail leading in about 12 km to approx 1800m, but one should only consider using it with a 4WD.|
I strongly recommend hiring a (reliable) guide / driver to access the mountain, otherwise, approcahing the mountain will take quite a lot of time.
If interested, please contact for instance Mentor ( email@example.com ), he will arrange and organize the climb for you (only drop off with 4WD or also guiding included if you want).
If going early in the season, you can encounter some snow , especially on the normal route or if trying to access from Decani(eg : on 29.5, high lake on Djeravica at 2400 was still frozen and Under some snow, while on our route, we sent up to 2500/2550 without encountering snow) but :
- you can easily reach quite a high altitude ( approx 1844 m) with a good 4WD
N 42.31.431 / E 020.09.886
from this point one saves quite a lot of time, the cimb is straightforward and roughly only 812 m long on very easy terrain.
- climb direct on the grassy slopes to reach Djeravica South east ridge which is very easy and obvious to foillow, some very easy rocky terrain on the last 100m.
some useful way points :
- access to ridge (slight fore summit) N 42.31.711 / E 020.09.046 at 2343 m
- summit N 42°31.970 / E 020.08.441

|From Junik up to the shpeherd's cottages by 4x4 and then 3h 15 walk to the top following the Erenik river up to the 2 Gjeravica lakes and summit. No worry about landmines. There are only on one side of the dirty road above Junik but perfectly indicated. We trekked with Outdoor Kosovo (Fatos Katallozi).|

|It was hard to find the way on the summit sometimes. But finally we succeeded. There are at least two simply ways on the top but intentionally we chose another - quite steep.|
