Overview

VisitorVISITOR (2211 m) mountain

In the central part of eastern mountains of Montenegro, between KOMOVI and PROKLETIJE ranges, above Plav town, Plavsko Jezero lake and the valley of Lim river which started from that lake, VISITOR/GOLES/ZELETIN/GREBEN mountain range is located. That beautiful range consist of the 4 mountains connected between itself - VISITOR (2211 m), GOLES (2033 m), ZELETIN (2112 m) and GREBEN (2196 m). This range is placed in front of the highest peaks of Montenegrin part of PROKLETIJE range. Some mountain writers wrote that VISITOR/GOLES/ZELETIN/GREBEN range is also a part of wider PROKLETIJE range, but i share Branislav Cerovic's opinion that this range is unique mountain range.

Vlado, samo...

dvije napomene: trebalo bi ispraviti podatak za Žuti kamen jer se on nalazi na Ljumbardskim planinama a ne u Bogicevici a cini mi se da bi se i u naslovu trebalo vidjeti da pises o Visorskoj grupi jer si ga stavio u areas i ranges a i u tekstu se govori i o Zeletinu i drugim planinama grupe. To kazem jer bi onda linkao stranicu na Visitor Group (slicno kao Maglic-Volujak-Bioc-Vlasulja Group) LP G

Re: Vlado, samo...

Sto se tice Zutog Kamena, ne poznajem ga i nisam jos bio tamo. Ovaj podatak sam preuzeo iz knjige. Hvala ti, ispravicu ga u Ljumbardske planine. Gde se one zapravo nalaze? Iskreno, prvi put cujem za njih : ) Sto se tice trenutacnog naslova ove stranice, danas cu to ispraviti u naslov grupe ove 4 planine. Sinoc nisam imao vise snage, pisao sam do kasnijih sati iako sam jutros na poslu. Nastavicu danas i zavrsiti stranicu koja ce biti slicna kao Maglic/Volujak/Bioc/Vlasulja. To je maltene isti princip, u pitanju su 4 bliske i povezane planine.

Re: Vlado, samo...

Tocno, problem je u tome sto se za neke logicne planinske skupine nikada nije udomacio neki zajednicki domaci naziv, vec su ih je narod nazivao samo iz svoje lokalne perspektive - pa nam je to problem. Ljumbardske su dobile naziv od llumi bardhit-bijela rijeka a smjestene su izmedju bogicevice i pecke bistrice: obuhvacaju: zuti kamen, maju nedzinat, dio koji se zaista zove ljumbardska planina a neki geomorfolozi i geolozi u njih ubrajaju i starac i zavoj (oba juzno od cakora) jer su povezani jednim izrazenim grebenom.
