General info 

Hiking is without a doubt one of the most popular outdoor activities in Durmitor National Park. 

Belonging to the Dinaric Alps, Durmitor is a majestic limestone massif located in northern Montenegro. It is one of the country’s two UNESCO-protected national parks. Bordered by the Tara River Canyon, the deepest canyon in Europe, the Durmitor National Park is made up of 40+ peaks over 2,000m above sea level, rising high above plateaus, alpine meadows and deep coniferous forests.

Prutaš (2393 m)  is one of the most beautiful, most popular and largest peaks. You won't find such impressive, breathtaking and unforgetable views anywhere else than from Prutaš summit. Prutaš is really the King of Durmitor's viewpoints peaks!

Overview of the tour 

  • Šarban (1,722m) - this is our starting point for the hike, during the next 2-3 hours with a total ascent of 650m over the 4km trail, we shall reach this magnificent, grass covered peak.
    This access is from the southern side via “Škrčko ždrijelo” (2114m) and is considered the best and easiest access to Prutaš. The trail from Šarban before the ascent towards Prutaš is mainly grassed terrain offering easy and relaxed hiking experience.
  • Prutaš (2,393m) - Prutas got it's name from its cliffs called "Prutovi" which is the plural form of "Prut" meaning a twig or branch. "Prutaš" means - a mountain made of twigs.
  • In front of Prutaš you will see the main and highest crest of Durmitor called "SOA NEBESKA" which means "Altar of the Sky". This 2 kilometres long and about 800 m high rocky wall contain three peaks - Bezimeni Vrh (2487 m), Bobotov Kuk (2523 m) and Djevojka/Soa (2440 m).
