Varda is a mountain located in eastern Bosnia, between Rudo, Priboj and Višegrad towns. Relict pine forests such as Austrian pine forests on serpentine and peridotites are found in Višegrad surroundings (hillsides of Sjemeč, Varda and Banja mountains). Like islands, dark volcanic cliffs are scattered along the Lim river valley nearby Rudo, running continuously toward western and southwestern Serbia.

According to morphological features of relief, it is similar to Zlatibor, Šargan and Mokra gora. The mountain is mostly covered by pine forests, majority of which are planted. Although it is a low mountain, its highest peak overlooks many mountains of Starovlaška highlands in Montenegro (Bjelasica, Ljubišnja, Durmitor, Bioč and Maglić and Bosnian mountains surrounding Sarajevo). Mount Varda is home to a diversity of wildlife: wild boar, European roe deer, and European hare.
