From May 26 to 28, we are organizing an excursion to one of the most magnificent and most beautiful mountains of Montenegro. This wild beauty is placed between the source of Ibar river and Rugova gorge, it is a part of Prokletije massif and is called Hajla! 🙂
Hajla is located on the border between Montenegro and Kosovo. With the highest peak at 2403 meters above sea level, it is the highest mountain in the Montenegrin part of Prokletije. Its highest peaks extend through the long ridge looking like a gently curved letter “S”. Below the ridge you can see mountain meadows, and below there are coniferous and mixed forests. The north part of this ridge, just below the highest peak of Hajla, is bare, rocky and vertical. The view from this ridge is amazing – you can see Bjelasica, Komovi, Durmitor, Karanfili…
On Friday afternoon we depart from Niksic with a bus. After we arrive in Rozaje, we will take jeeps and trucks and go all the way to Bandzov village. From Bandzov we hike until the mountain lodge Grope that is located at 1980 meters above sea level, where we will spend the night. Our hosts will surprise you with their hospitality, fabulous food and cozy atmosphere, so we are guessing that you’ll wish to stay just a few days more (’cause that’s what we wished for last time we were there :)).
After arriving at the Lodge on Friday night, we will have dinner and hang out with music. On Saturday morning, after breakfast, we go on a tour around this Montenegrin beauty, and then to climb the top Ahmica at 2272 meters above sea level. After the climb, we’ll go back to the lodge for lunch. When we finish with lunch, there will be time for some leisure activities. There is still snow around the lodge, so we can take a chance to go skiing and snow boarding for the last time before the summer heat! 🙂 Also, taking photos and videos of this amazing landscape certainly will not be skipped! 🙂 At the end of the day we will have dinner and hang out a little bit more.
On Sunday morning after breakfast we head back to Niksic.
Departure is planned for Friday, May 26 at 4 pm in front of Faculty of Philosophy in Niksic, and return is on Sunday, May 28 around 3 pm.
