Breathtaking hike through the impressive Mrtvica Gorge in the heart of Montenegro. Sometimes wild and white, occasionally calm and emerald green, the river shows itself from a different, exciting side behind every bend — a real insider tip.

This hike could easily add to the bestseller "In the wild gorges of the Balkans" by Karl May. The route starts relatively unspectacularly along the river, which is still calm and wide at the beginning. Danilo's Bridge is the first highlight of this hike. Enjoy the river Mrtvica from its best side! The dense and species-rich jungle would be a real dream path even without the occasional views of the river. In the middle of this fairytale forest, just a few meters off the trail, we take a look through Kapija želja - the gate of wishes. The colors of the water shimmering through the natural rock gate seem almost surreal and make us linger for quite a while in this enchanted place. However, the highlight of the tour soon follows; a ledge that is easy to walk but spectacularly blasted into a vertical wall, which is the only way to pass the gorge.

Schöner, ruhiger Wanderweg. Vorsicht ist bei den Brücken geboten, da fehlt teilweise der Boden oder das Geländer

Beeindruckende Schlucht und atemberaubende Landschaft. Auf jeden Fall einen Besuch wert. Entgegen vorherigen Kommentaren ist die hier aufgezeichnete Tour mit Hin- und Rückweg 12 km lang. Man sollte jedoch noch 1 km mehr einplanen, um das Hidglight der Wanderung, den in den Fels gesprengten Weg zu sehen. Insgesamt waren wir 5 Std. unterwegs. Anfang Juni haben wir keine einzige Schlange, lediglich ein paar harmlose Salamander, gesehen.
