It is a glacial cirque and the katun is rich with water. The Volusnica Brook is formed from melting snow and a waterfall, and flows to Grbaja Valley. From Volusnica katun follow the markers to the highest peak of Volusnica, then southward, along the grassy and rocky slope, to the upper part of the Volusnica cirque, and than to the summit of Volusnica (1879 m) peak. The eastern rocky face of Volusnica descends steeply to one of the four meadows of Grbaja Valley and is a considerable climbing challenge for mountaineers.
