Turn-by-turn directions

From Omrcenica, the ascent to Mali Vran starts, which is not long but is a bit steep. After Mali Vran, the trail follows a wide ridge with splendid views on Blidinje and Cvrsnica. The ridge hiking ends on Vran summit and from there it is possible to descend over steep terrain down to the Mountain Lodge Blidinje on the shore of the lake. The descent is pretty steep and hard on the knees. 

You will continue towards Veliki (Great) Vran summit for another 2 hours.  From Veliki Vran the trail continues further over less steep terrain, passing through the beech forest and an old cistern built in traditional way.  The trail ends on a road.

You have a chance to visit Stecci necropolis in Dugo polje, which is one of those on UNESCO heritage list.
