The highest mountain in Bosnia and Herzegovina
It is located on the border of Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina in the Sutjeska National Park. There are two ways to get on it. From the north by an exposed path (up to the 2nd level of the UIAA) or by a classic hike from the south from the beautiful Trnovačka lake. During my visit, Maglić (fog) got its name, so it was not visible at more than 15m.
Piva Regional Park
On the way from the Prijevor saddle to Trnovačko jezero. The Prijevor saddle is the last option where you can leave your car. Then we walked for about two hours through the beautiful landscape to the lake, where there was the possibility of camping. Along the way, the border is legally crossed from BiH to Montenegro.
The journey stretches slightly for more than two hours, as there is still something to look at and something to take pictures of.
Peaks in the fog
The next morning, the situation did not look the most favorable. It was beautiful downstairs, but the peaks were all in the fog. We said we would try and at least get where it goes.
We gradually climb above Trnovačko. The plan is to walk to the ridge and find out what the situation looks like for the trip to Maglič.
After climbing the ridge, we confirmed that the situation looks exactly as it looked down from the lake. Maglič got its name (magla = fog). There was almost nothing to see, but we said to ourselves that when we were on the ridge, we had to go all the way up.
Bosanski Maglić 2386 m
After an hour of walking through the thick fog, we finally climbed to the top. The views were beautiful … about ten meters!
Thornbush in full beauty
The return trip was about two activities. Looking down with wide eyes and open mouth at the lake, while looking underfoot so that the way down would not be accelerated by a steep fall.
In the evening, the sun was projected on the rocks.
You can camp by the beautiful lake for a small fee. There is a cottage with a cheerful manager Miloš, where you can buy some beer. Along with us, there were about five more tents. Four of them Czech. According to the administrator Miloš, „Czech invasion“!
If beer is not enough, you can take a walk of about twenty minutes to the mountain huts, where local herders sell two types of cheese and bread. He produces everything on site in really very modest sheds.
After another night at the lake, the weather cleared and it was beautiful. Unfortunately, we were pressed for time, so we had to go back to the Prijevor saddle.
