Durmitor – Proud Mountain Beauty
Have you ever heard of Mount Durmitor? Most of you are not because this gem is hidden in the wilderness of a small but beautiful country, Montenegro.
The Celts called it “Dru Mi Tore” which literally means “Mountain full of water”. The highest peak of Durmitor is “Bobotov Kuk” which reaches a height of 2,523 m. For all nature and mountaineering lovers, conquering this peak is one of the most beautiful experiences one can have, thanks to the view of the picturesque landscapes from the heights.
The special charm of this part of Durmitor is reflected in the unreal relief areas, a huge plateau that is intersected at 1,500 meters above sea level by the valleys of deep canyons. Within the canyon, there are another 48 mountain peaks that reach over 2000m above sea level.
