Deravica is reached from Decani a town and monastery in Kosovo. Pec is the nearest bigger city and Decani is 16 km to the south of it.
At the monastery there's a hotel which seems not to be now in conditions to be of use for tourists. The route to Deravica is not easy to find as you walk a great river valley, Decanska bistrica, that has many sideroudes. Local inhabitants will guide you as good as it can get here.
You follow the Decanska bistrica only a few hundred meters from the monastery. An easy path on a ridge above the valley that is in dense forests will bring you after 3 houres to alpine grounds where many wooden houses shelter the shepherds summerpastures. When you pass the first major settlement you will see a big mountain hut (at 2000 m) above the waterfall. The condition of the hut is unclear but eventually you may take shelter with some shepherds.
From here its an 3 hour scramble on Deravica.
Good boots and food. Water is available evrywhere.
If you have information about this route that doesn't pertain to any of the other sections, please add it here.
