Getting There


From Sarajevo go toward Kalinovik. Just before Kalinovik (in Jažići(?) village) you''ll see crossroad - there is a sign "Miljevina" on the beginning of the macadam road. After few kilometers, youu reach another crossroad - follow the sign "Čemerno". After few more kilometers, you' ll reach a wide meadow with a another crossroad. You follow the right one. On next two-three crossroads just stick to the right ones too. At the end of the road leave a car .

Then you'll see a two trails - you follow the left one. This one leads you through the forest (and small meadows). The trail is not marked but it's quite logical - you just have to go straight forward until you reach Jablan Vrelo (N 43°25'56" E 18°29'53"). There is a small spring with exceptional water. From Jablan Vrelo you can see Velika Lelija (N 43°25'21" E 18°29'16") - the highest Lelija summit. It's on the left - you just have to go toward it although the trail is quite in bush/forest for first couple of hundreds of meters. Then you reach meadows - with blueberries (:)). You''ll see ridge of Velika Lelija just in front of you - you have to reach left side of it. So, go in that direction - you'll reach a saddle with magnificient view over nearby mountains (e.g. Zelengora). From the saddle you should turn right - uphill. After some cascade summits you'll ses the biggest one - Velika lelija. That's it.

Notes: Reaching the summit takes 2,5 -3 hours . Only spring on the trail is the one in Jablan Vrelo.
