According to many people, Bjelasica is the most beautiful Montenegrin mountain. It is located in the heart of Montenegro, i.e. in the central-continental part of the country. It is 30 km long.
It is bordered by two large rivers – Lim and Tara on one side, and Ljuboviđ and Lepenica on the other. It belongs to Municipalities of Kolašin, Mojkovac, Bijelo Polje, Berane, and Andrijevica.
It is suitable for hiking, and even its highest tops are accessible. Also, it is abundant with forest, as well as running water.
In contrast with other mountains in the region, Bjelasica has volcanic origin. That is why it has green summers and white winters. And while on other mountains waters sink, here they remain on the surface, flowing down in multiple streams and rivers. The most beautiful of which is Biograd River, flowing into Lake Biograd. Bjelasica’s highest top is Crna Glava, around 2139 m a.s.l.
There are active katuns (katun is a small mountain village made of huts inhabited by shepherds in the summer) on Bjelasica today, and traditional huts are a true challenge for tourists.
If you want to experience an adventure on the mountain, this is the perfect spot for you. This mountain’s top are more than 2000 m a.s.l., and represent a true challenge for mountaineers.
Bjelasica is attractive for hiking, mountain cycling, jeep tours, and especially for botany enthusiasts in the spring months, when it is covered with flowers. It is an ideal area for families, where children can enjoy the snow (it is possible to find it in some spots up until August), ride a horse, or simply pick flowers.
