General info 

Bjelasica is a magical mountain in Montenegro. It is located in the heart of Montenegro, i.e. in the central-continental region. Bjelasica is special for its richness of forest, running waters and the fact that its highest mountain peaks are easily accessible and passed through.
Unlike other mountains in this region, the Bjelasica Mountain is of volcanic origin.
Hence green summer and white winters. While the waters on Durmitor and Lovcen are declining ,everything remains on the surface in this place.
The waters flow into numerous streams and rivers including Biogradska Rijeka as the most important and beautiful one and continue to flow into Biogradsko Lake - the pearl of this mountain.
Lake Biograd is surrounded by a long-existing rainforest that is reflected in the lake, with wooden boats on it making the whole environment look magical.

The highest peak of Bjelasica is Crna glava (Black head), 2,139 meters high.

A special charm to this area is given by the rainforest, which covers 1,600 hectares - it is one of the last three rainforests in Europe. In this area, everything is in the hands of nature, without the influence of man, which makes this place even more attractive.

After a short break, the tour continues at the foot of the most impressive highest peaks of Bjelasica: Zekova glava, Crna glava and Troglava, all the way to the place with magnificent views over two glacial lakes (out of seven in total): Ursulovacko and Pesica lakes (the second largest lake on the Bjelasica mountain). These two lakes are also known as "The Mountain Eyes".
