Panorama of KOMOVI ~ Click to enlarge ~
Together with DURMITOR
range and PROKLETIJE
range belong to the group of the three most impressive and most magnificent mountain ranges of Montenegro
and also of DINARIC ALPS
range is situated in the eastern part of Montenegro
(Serbia&Montenegro) and it stretches between the farthest upstream parts of the Lim
river to the east and the Tara
river on the west, to Drcka
river to the north and Prokletije
with mount Planica
to the south.
From the south
it is encircled with a complex of Montenegrin - Albanian mountain range known as Prokletije
(the highest peaks at altitude of 2534 m - Kolac/Maja Kolata, 2694 m - Jezerski Vrh/Maja Jezerce), and on the north
mountain (the highest peak at altitude of 2139 m - Crna Glava/Black Head).
Kučki Kom summit view to Ljevoriječki Kom, Srednji Kom and Vasojevićki Kom
Kučki Kom summit ridge
Kučki Kom and Srednji Kom
This mountain massif
of Komovi, 40 km long
and 30 km wide
, is encrusted from all sides by spatial plateaus at average altitude of 1900 m (Stavna and Ljuban to the north, Rogam to the west, Crne to the south and Varda to the east).
The highest peaks
of Komovi mountain are: Kucki Kom (2487 m)
, Ljevorijecki Kom (2469 m
, north peak of Kucki Kom) and Vasojevicki Kom (2460 m)
A tame village Konjuhe is located on the east side in the vicinity on the foot of Komovi mount, in the valley of the Peruchica river. Mountain massif
Komovi sharply rises from that place at the altitude of 850 m as a gigantic mountain pyramid.
From the highway in the vicinity the mountain passage at Tresnjevik a magnificent and unforgettable panorama of northern side opens up with northern side of three rocky peaks of mountain Komovi with its abundant forest cover at the foot of it.
In the Kingdom of KOMOVI
Srednji Vrh (2483 m) of Kom Kucki (2487 m)
Kom Vasojevicki (2460 m)
Eastern and southeastern side of this mountain belongs to Polimlje
and to municipality Andrijevica
. It is the eastern side of Vasojevicki Kom which, from its top (2460 m), slopes down to Stavna and Varda (1900 m) and to the Lim river at 700 m. Confluent valleys along the Lim and Tara rivers are sharply cutting lower parts of Komovi mountain in radial manner and make this area accessible from all sides. This area is known for its direct openness and vicinity of the shortest tourist-frequented route between southeast Montenegro and its coastal region and a favourable continuity and exposition of its slopes.
The length of potential slopes at Stavna
is 3762 m and average sloping angle of topographic area ranges from 11 degrees (at Shtavna) to 19 degrees (at Carine). These mountains represent shaped plateaus and slopes which lie at altitudes ranging from 1500 to 2000 m. Stavna and Carine stand out with their big potential for developing tourism.
Komovi mountain fascinates everyone with its diversity of natural attractions. One can see all the potency of nature through endless geological periods. Komovi peaks are encircled with cuttings formed around springs in pre-glacial water sources. Basic morphological charachteristics of cuttings are their vertical and conical shape, always being bare, with open asymmetric sides, rugged edges, and they are situated below the blocks etc.
KOMOVI from Stavna vasty plateau
Impressive massif of Kom Ljevorijecki (2469 m)
To the west, below the cliffs of Kucki Kom, there are Rogam
cutting and Pricelje
cutting with little lakes and ponds. In the south side below the very top of Kucki Kom there is a cutting called the Popovich's Cabin. Out of all cuttings in Komovi mountains the most conspicuous is Medjukomlje
in most authentic in the northern side of Komovi.
In the eastern slopes of Vasojevic's Kom, pre-glacial relief did not caused formation of cuttings. Traces of double glaciation can be seen in glacial depressions and morenic alluvions at Stavni and Vardi. There, at the shepherd settlement at Varda, rice big morenic walls (very bog rocky material that glacial rivers and snow avalanches had torn from the ground and sides of tidal water-channel and, at the end of kinetic power, heaped there without any order).
Almost everywhere around Komovi ridges from their very tops there are big heaps of sandy and rocky materials "tochila"
that were made out of the processes of erosion ("tochila" are shallow and narrow unformed oval troughs, while "sipari" are heaped sand and stone materials that fell off and heaped at the foot of tochilo and they fill out the bottom of cuttings). They look like rivers of rock as they go down to the cuttings and river valleys of Perucica and Kucka rivers. The biggest "sipari"
is located on north-eastern side of Vasojevicki Kom and it si almost 3 km long
. These unusual valleys and "rocky chaos" complete an outstanding composition on this space.

peterbud - Aug 15, 2008 9:07 am - Voted 10/10demolished road section between Kolasin and Tresnjevik
Warning for those who plan to approach Trešnjevik pass by car: one section of the asphalt road after Mateševo village is closed (probably due to being completely washed away by the parallel river). Here you have to ascend a rough rocky serpentine (to the right) and descend on a steep ramp on the other side to get back on the asphalt road. It is not mission impossible, but be careful with low cars!

The road to the Tresnjevik pass from Kolasin is in poor condition but nowhere impassable. From the east the road from Andrijevica is in much better condition. The road from the pass to Eko katun Štavna is now tarmac. The Bjelasica Komovi 1:60,000 map is available from Stanfords in London. Dave
