Detailed description of the tour:
Starting point and time are near Hard Discount Lakovic in town Bar at 9:00 am (if you are willing to help orthodox monastery you can by some groceries they need). We set off by car towards the Orthodox monastery and along the way you can take beautiful photos.
Monastery is settled at height of 1000 meters above sea level.
At different time of the year we can collect medicinal herbs like: heather, sage, fireweed, mint, thyme and lot more. I tell about their health benefit during my tours.
The climb is very steep, but if you breath properly, you can climb. The most important thing is to follow the rule that Montenegrins use all the time – POLAKO – which means slowly, no rush.
You can see video of this tour on the page bottom.
On tour to the highest peak of the mountain you will be able to see views like this.
On height of 1594 meters there is church made of metal which was brought by – guess what? Exactly! Helicopter!
Taking windbreaker for this trip is recommended.
