General info 

Stabanska Lakes (Big and Small), are named after the village called Stabna, of which they are only 4.5 km away. The Big Stabanjsko Lake lies at 1,319 m above sea level, and the Small Lake lies at 1,194 m above sea level.

The magnificent canyons of the Piva, Tara, Komarnica and Vrbnica rivers – the peaks of Bioč, Maglić, and Golija mountains – the fascinating Trnovačko and Pivsko mountain lakes – all this makes the Piva region among the favorite rural escapes in Montenegro!


Hiking tour – Stabanjska lake

Overview of the tour 

  • We begin the hiking tour in the village of Stabna, 15km away from Plužine. A solid 4.5km trail leads us through unspoiled nature, arriving first at the Small Stabanjska Lake (1,194m).
  • Big Stabanjska Lake (1,325m) - with photo opportunities along the way. The Stabanjska lakes are sheltered by the mountain peaks of Bioč, whose slopes are busy with dense green deciduous and pine forests.
  • From the Big Stabanjska Lake, we continue our onward hike to the picturesque Katun of Kručica for a refreshment break. In close vicinity is the Zemunica water source, giving us ice-cold water fresh from the mountain, overlooked by the ’stećci’ medieval cemetery.
