Expansive landscapes of Piva plateau and villages with only few people residing are a special attraction of this region. A true mountain landscape where the highest peak of Durmitor, Bobotov kuk, with its 2523 meters above sea level, is seen above the Škrčka Lakes and is then replaced with the shade of dense forest of the Sušica canyon.

A beautiful stage! It starts at a plateau where you walk mainly on asphalt, but very beautiful non the less. Then go down a canyon, in order to go up later. And then they are there; the beautiful steep mountains! Very nice views! At the end of this route there is a beautiful lake! NOTES: - Guesthouse Nedajno is a nice place for a rest or sleep - PD Susica has water outside, but the hut was closed. Would be nice if contact info can be added to the waypoint. - PD Skrka is damaged, but one can still sleep inside if necessary. When we were there there was no water (september 2021). There are 2 lakes close by, but one needs a filter (cows roam there) - The small lake behind PD Skrka is very nice for camping. - The route goes straight up to Planinica peak, however there is also a route around (5,5 km) which is better we think. - From PD Skrka it is also possible to go to Bobotov Kuk (highest mountain Montenegro) and continue to Zabljak

Beautiful stage, well marked, hiked northbound. Descent from planinica to lakes is a bit adventurous: doable for us in trail runners with poles and about 8 Kilos backpacks not really dangerous but also not for the faint hearted. Lakes are an amazing reward. Underestimated the descent from the lakes to the campsite down at the dry lake. Takes some more time than it seemed.

First 7km is gravel road and then you have asphalt road until Sušičko lake (without water in it). You have nice views from many parts of the road, many wild strawberries and raspberries, so it wasn't so bad :) Guesthouse Nedajno has nice rooms, 15€/pp with veeeery good breakfast, food is also amazingly good.😅 Meals are very cheap (aprox 5€), but other things are quite expensive (very small salad 2.5€, homemade juice 2€).Woman is so nice and friendly, we felt amazing at their place. But unfortunatelly in the morning her doughter came and was so rude to us, that she ruined all the magical experince we had.😦 There is good water source, constant running water by Sušičko lake. You pay 3€ fee for n.p. Durmitor. You can also take water from Škrčko lake (we filtered it). Nice place for a break :) Trail to Planinica steep, but without problems if you go up. Nice view on the top. You have some nice places to pitch a tent when you start descending from the top, but you can also sleep at the top. You pass by some ponds. Tables and benches by Zminje lake, small water source. You have good water source just few hundred metters before you come to the restaurant, right after you cross the bridge on the left side of the trail. Lake is nice for a swim :)
