Hranisava via Strugovi
Via Dinarica Verified partner Explorers Choice
At Djevojačke stijene get off the trail, enjoy the wonderful view. Get back to the trail, continue towards Ždrijelo, where, some half an hour later a trail leading to the ferrata via Strugovi branches of the main track. Before taking on the scree you should prepare your gear (belt, helmet, ferrata set with two carabiners). Each step must be carefully planned as the rocks and the grass are extremely slippery. In several places pitons have been removed and the cable is rather slack, probably due to the rockslides. You can see the unused pitons along the last 50-metre stretch, but the ground is flat there and there's a trail on which you can walk comfortably. Still, you should be extremely cautious as the edge of the precipice is less than a metre away from the right hand side of the trail, and every slip could be fatal.
A little less than an hour after you set out, you reach the top of Strugovi, where you're greeted by a wonderful view of the plateau of Mt Bjelašnica. The peak Hranisava is an hour's ascent away.
The way back to Kraljevac is via a steep trail across the gorge. That side gets sunlight late in the afternoon, which is helpful in case you stay a bit longer.
