A hike from Trnovačko Jezero to Buško Jezero. From the Montenegran border to Croatian border along BiH's beautiful mountainranges and National Parks. #mustsee #dontmiss ;-) Perućica, Sutjeska, Zelengora, Treskavica, Visočica, Bjelašnica, Rakitnica, Prenj, Čvrsnica, Blidinje, Vran and Svinjar.

This is what I hiked, so it includes all the wrong turns I took AND the parts where I lost the trail... But I thought it might be useful in order to see where future Via Dinarica hikers might pay a bit more attention.

(My waypoints will follow soon)

Author’s recommendation

Check the conditions for water supply, during the summer many springs dry up and the wells are not always in a good state.
