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.

Easy walk on low ridgeline, majority of which was on a gravel road. towards the end watch out for markings and be prepared to cross several electric fences. Nozdrec Spring working and would be a lovely place to stop and camp. We decided to carry on as was early afternoon. Pizzeria Pecina is worth a visit if you're hungry, pizzas and beer good price (12.50KM for both), little convenice shop from Pizzaria down road before crossing plane. Get water bottles refilled at Omolje (ask locals) before headding up mountain. Camped in saddle before Orlov Kuk, just make sure you find somewhere sheltered, wind was pretty brutal.
