Built by veteran alpinists from Sarajevo and Jablanica. It is base for alpine ascents in Veliki Kuk massive as well as for two Via Feratta trails.
This is a small shelter where you can sleep and hide from the rain. You need to have your own sleeping bag and food. Water is available near the bivouac.
