Šatorsko LakePhoto: Aleksandar Gospic, http://bit.ly/1RH07du
There are not many surface waters; however, a portion of cold mountain water plunging over the ridges of Mount Šator emerges in the form of permanent or occasional springs. Such is Šatorsko Lake, surrounded with different carbonate rocks, of which limestone and dolomites are dominant. The lake has a surface area of 35.000 m2, average depth of 1,5 m and a maximum depth of 3 m. The lake experiences strong Mediterranean climate on the one hand and continental and warm continental climates on the other hand. The lake is a testament to a strong glacial period when glaciers descended down the Šator hillsides.
Mount Šator has great numbers of rare, endangered and endemic plants, particularly notable is a rare and medical herb Gentianalutea ssp. Symphyandraand, an endangered species of Leontopodium alpinum, which has been protected world-wide.
Getting thereThere are few roads to the top, the best one being the forest road from Gornja Peulja, which separates from the Livno – Bosansko Grahovo road. The lake can be accessed by car from Bosansko Grahovo via Tičevo and from Livno via Gornja Peulja.
