Walking, hiking and safari tours are becoming increasingly popular among the the offers of the Drina-Tara Rafting Center. They are mostly done on Maglić and Zelengora mountains, and each one has its own charms.
Nature lovers are especially attracted to the six kilometers long hiking route Prijevor-Suva jezerina-Trnovacko lake, and another one to Zelengora-Srijemusina Luka-Crno jezero-Bijelo jezero-Ljubin Grob and Donje Bare-Gornje Bare, both representing true enjoyment in the gifts of nature.
In summer and early autumn, guests of our Rafting Center who decide to go hiking have the opportunity to pick and taste forest mushrooms-mussel, fox, ruby, beech, etc. but also wild blueberries, cranberries, wild strawberries, raspberries and a wide variety of medicinal herbs, among such as lincura, heartwood, sporic, cantarion, bear grapes, willow herbs, thyme, etc.
However, in addition to the primeval beauty that adorns these mountains, itinerant travelers who decide to go hiking without a guide can face various pitfalls and dangers.
We suggest that you don’t go to the mountain by yourself, because mountains are whimsical and full of challenges, even in summer. Unfortunately, there are more and more people who stray on Maglic and Zelengora, because they decide to go hiking without a guide, only relying to gps navigation and other technological innovations. Fortunatelt, most of their journeys had a hapy ending.
However, the 2010 case remains mystery, with the whole region booming about it. In June, almost ten years ago, a young French naturalist Benoit Marten, went by himself, on foot, to Zelengora Mountain , after spending the night at the hotel in the „Sutjeska“ National park and he was never found! In vain were the pursuits of mountaineering guides, Mountain Rescue Services, SFOR soldiers and other services, which lasted for days and months.
The greatest danger on the mountains is inadequate clothing and shoes and sudden fog and cold. Maglic and Zelengora are mountains to enjoy, but they deserve your respect!
