Down King's Hunting Trail

Period: April to November
Čvrsnica Mountain, as a part of mountains representing Dinaric extension of the Swiss Alps, is located in northern Herzegovina. It has more than ten summits above 2000 m. Its highest peak – Pločno (2228masl) is actually the highest mountain peak in all Herzegovina and bears the name „Herzegovina’s roof top”. Čvrsnica also hides beautiful lakes: Blidinje, Crepulja and Crvenjak. Its bio-life is characteristic with numerous endemic species (like Munika Pine) and is also known as a home of chamois. We find it as the ideal place for all those who desire silence, wilderness and mountain peacefulness, complemented only with sounds of wind and hidden forest inhabitants.
