Where is Bobotov Kuk:

Located in Durmitor National Park is Bobotov Kuk, the highest peak in Montenegro. The mountain sits at 2,523m. This adventure lasted around 6 hours and takes approximately three hours to get to the peak and then three hours return.

A highlight of the Balkans, Montenegro:

Myself and six other friends ventured off to hike Bobotov Kuk. This was a stop along a two week Balkan trip we were on. The experience was a highlight for all of us.

The view was amazing from the get-go. It was like something out of a postcard

On this particular day the weather reached the high 30’s, however we got quite the surprise on the way back when we were hit with torrential rain with 20 minutes of hiking left before we reached the car. To say we were drenched is an understatement.

We were so fascinated by the structure of the rocks to the right of the photo, so of course we had to stop for a few photos, before continuing…uphill.

Just casually chilling at roughly 2,200m. I was speechless when we got to this point, and all I could say was ‘This is incredible’.

Holding on for dear life. Parts of the track were quite narrow, so it was great to have the wire to hold onto for support as we made our way up.

Picturesque view.

Heading uphill. The track was clearly marked with red circles, which made navigating your way to the peak easy, if only the uphill parts were that easy.

Making it to the top was incredible, and made those three (somewhat challenging) hours worth it. The view was absolutely breathtaking.
