Džamija, the highest peak of Mt Visočica (1967 MASL) is not frequently visited, mostly due to its remoteness. The walk starts in Tušila, via a macadam road through Sinanovići, then heads towards the peaks of Mt Visočica.
The road leads through Jelenjača, where a lake is formed in springtime towards the foot of Puzim. To the right, underneath Crveni kuk, the road leads to Bojadžin dol, where you can see stećak tombstones. There are three fountains along the way. The first one is called Mandino vrelo and can be found just below Crveni kuk, the other two are known as the Biber brothers' fountains, and they're located a kilometre down the road. Go uphill from the stećak tombstones in Bojadžin dol towards another necropolis at Jezera. Topographic maps show about ten springs on this plateau, but most of them go dry in early summer leaving behing unpotable puddles. To your left are the peaks Mali Ljeljen, Veliki Ljeljen and Džamija in the distance. The ascent to Džamija is rather difficult and is covered in boulders.
The return route is via Parić, along the ridge to Vito and back to Tušila. To climb Parić you may take the grassy ascent or the more difficult route up the rocky slope. You reach Vito across the ridge, descend the amphitheatre and go back to Tušila via the marked trail.
Getting thereTake M18 to Krupac, and just after the quarry turn right onto R442a towards Mt Bjelašnica and Mt Igman. When you reach Hotel Maršal on Bjelašnica continue straight ahead, then descend all the way down to Šabići. From Šabići continue to the right till you reach the junction where the road to Umoljani branches off. Turn left across the bridge and continue straight all the way to Tušila.
