Grebaje represents a very attractive valley with its contrasts and the sight of surrounding massifs. In this valley full of sun, smells and soft breeze, the visitor stands like enchanted, staring at the sky, and there is not much of it because it is overshadowed by rocky peaks whose sides flare with snow. These are areas taht are very hard to reach and even hard to leave.

Grebaje Valley is the continuation of Dolja Valley. Looking from the Grebaja Valley at the Brade range near Karanfili, the allocation of ridges from the northwest slope is very interesting, especially the rocky outcrops and cirques (fossil nest of glaciers). Like teeth in a comb, they make a row of rocky ridges, parallel and in line according to their height. The right side of the Grebaje Valley is marked by the rocky barrier of Valušnica. From this point, there is a unique view over the peaks of Vezirova Brada, the rocks of Karanfili and Grebaja Valley.

Grebaja is famous after its very flat base where four bigger meadows dominate, cut by the Valušnički brook which is dry during summer. From Valušnički brook, Grebaja valley is 2 km long. The meadow across the brook represents the beginning of Grebaja and is called Krug (Circle) or Stari katun (Old shepherd's hut). At the beginning of the meadow on the right there is mounatin lodge Karanfili, owned by the Mountain cllub Karanfili from Gusinje. Down there beside the road, in the little part of the conifer forest, there is Suljova česma (Suljo's fountain) - the very last and the only drinking water in Grebaja Valley.  Suljo's fountain is the starting point for many mountaineers' tours Grebaja Valley and its an ideal place for camping.
