An easy walk/ mountain bike ride with not so many spectacular views, but a glimpse into an amazing underground world.

The access road (via 4x4 only) to the wind-turbine park connects several caves, pits, and chasms. Those include a cave that has the largest discovery of cave bear remnants, a graveyard of ancient elephants, archaeological spots, and the river Suica's spring and sinkholes. This tour can be called the Walk in The Lost World.

Great views over Lake Busko and Duvanjsko Field are also part of this connecting trail.

Author’s recommendation

Biking this trail with a proper mountain bike will leave you with enough time to explore chasms and caves along the way.

Still a lot of gravel road walk, before the real Bosnian highlights start.

Planinarska stazaa koja vodi preko Grabovičke planine potpuno je uništena izgradnjom pristupnog puta za novoizgrađene vjetrenjače. Ne treba tražiti markaciju već se treba kretati cestom što uvu tturu čini manje privlačnom. Nedostatak je nepostojanje putokaza za odvajanje prema pećinama i izvoru Šujice.
