Bobotov kuk. This strange name represent the highest mountain peak in the Republic Montenegro, which is the part of Yugoslavia. It is 2523 m height and after the Djeravica in Kosovo it is the highest point in Yugoslavia.

Bobotov kuk is situated in the center of massif of mountain Durmitor. Durmitor is one of the most beautiful National park in the south of Europe.

This remarkable top is surrounded by 48 peaks over the 2000 m height, which belongs to National park.

Mountaineers can climb Bobot from different faces. But you have to know, the last part of acsending is the same, anyway.

The esaiest way to get the top is from ridge Sedlo (1907 m). The good fact is that one can reach Sedlo by car, bacause there is road.

From ridge the pace lead to lake Zeleni vir (Green Whirpool). It is small "pearl" on 2075 m. From there climber must ascend about 400 m

very steep path to ridge between Bobotov kuk and Lucin vrh. The ridge is the point where various waies ascending on Bobot have been met.

From there you need about 30 minutes climbing in full meaning of that word. Be carefull because it is the most dangerous part of ascending.

There is marks, so it makes climbing easy. Recommendation is to follow those marks beacuse they lead you safely stright to the top.

After climbing you can go down in the foot of the mountain in the same way, but it is much more interesting to get down on the other side.

You will see many interesting details of Durmitor.
