I drove from the small village of Plužine up to the Dobri Do trailhead. Dangerous mountain road, with dark, narrow tunnels and blind corners.
Afterwards I took the same road down, and then went north to Bosnia & Herzegovina. Crossing the border took a couple of hours!
We climbed from Sedlo after an successful attempt the previous day from Zablak which failed because there was so much snow that we couldn't find the path at some point. I would say we went too early and wouldn't recommend you to go there before the end of June. From 12 people only 3 of us made it to the top.
Hiked from Sedlo to summit, was not expecting as much elevation gain, but the elevation loss between the two passes that one must ascend and descent from made 12 km distance and 1000 m gain.
Beautiful warm day and some great views. Absolutely recommend this hike/scramble (top bit) to everyone!
The weather was warm and windy.
Amazing views - sketchy last bit. Long day from Zabljak.
Very nice route and beautiful weather. From Crno Jezero - Plan Slonitze - summit and back by Ledena Pecina. The whole massif reminds me of the Spanish mountains of Picos de Europa, where I live.
From Sedlo to summit, then to Ledene Pecina, Lokvice and Crno Jezero
summit reached in rain.. bad day:-(
Nice half-day trip. At the end a little easy scrambling.
Morning began rather grey in the sky but then the day became absolutely brilliant, we started at dawn and hiked through Lokvice valley and then via interesting Ledena Pecina ice cave to climb the summit just before 4 pm in great scenery of fantastic summit panorama reaching not only fairy tale Durmitor peaks but mounain ranges of all neighbouring Balkan countries on the horizon. Back to Zabljak by the same way in the darkness after 11 pm. Great trip.
Hitchhiked to Sedlo and camped there. Started just after sunrise. Saw some patches of snow in the valleys. Sunny weather all the way. Scrambling just before the summit was very scary for my girlfriend.
Sarban water spring – Prutaš (2393 m) – Gruda (2302 m) - Devojka (2440 m) from southeast - Lucin Vrh (2396 m) – Bobotov Kuk (2522 m) - Zabljak
Started from and arrived back to Lokvice, where we had camped. The round trip took 8 hours (we walked in a slow pace). The fog just cleared up by the time we reached the summit, so we could enjoy the great views from there. Lots of people on the peak that day.
We approached the summit from north, spent a night at the katun, where we bought fresh cheese. Really amazing mountain!
I set out from Žabljak around 5 AM made it to Crno jezero and walked up in the direction of Ledena pećina. At 1800 m elevation a single (male?) wolf was spotted. Extensive snow fields were still present at the time which made walking without sinking into the snow very hard at higher elevations.At the time I did not have sunglasses and the reflections in the snow from the blazing sun made looking very hard.I reached the saddle below Bobotov kuk around 11 AM or so and a few minutes later I was standing on the summit! Upon descent I descended through Zeleni vir and onto Sedlo from where I walked back to Žabljak. The whole round-trip took something like 12-13 hours. Very strenous!
Starting from Sedlo, passed below Zupci and Zeleni Vir lake we reached top of Bobotov Kuk in 5 hours and sitting on the top one more hour we admired to the view.
On a way back stopped in Ledena cave and came down to Crno lake.
We had to turn back from the pass because of a very big storm. After that we couldn't try one more time because long rainy weather started.
