The highest peak of the Durmitor mountain range is Bobotov Kuk, which, moreover, is also the highest point in Montenegro. This peak rises to a high-rise of 2522 meters. If the weather is clear and calm, then it offers a view of almost the opposite end of the country, for example, the Serbian massif Kopaonik or Mount Lovcen.
The first ascent to this peak was made and recorded in 1883. To date, such a climb does not present any difficulty for professional climbers, besides it is very popular among tourists. There are two routes for climbing this peak: the first takes about five and a half hours and goes through a primeval forest from the outskirts of Zabljak to the Black Lake itself, and the second one takes about 2 hours and starts at the Sadlo pass at an altitude of 1960 m.
The second route is easier, which is why most of the tourists choose it. You can get to the pass by bike or car from Zabljak. Those tourists who decide to follow a long route must leave the hotel for the ascent no later than 6 am.
The optimal time for ascent is July-September. In June, there is still snow in many areas, and in October the weather changes a lot, it can be unpredictable and is already quite cold.
It is important to have a small set of equipment with you where there should be water , some food, trekking boots, a waterproof jacket, sunscreen and a hat. In one direction, the length of the route is about 9 km, while the height difference is about 1.2 km.
