Only 3km away from the centre of Zabljak, Malo (Small) and Veliko (Big) Lakes merge into Crno (Black) Lake. This lake is specific for its dark blue shade of water, which often seems black, and the effect is created by the Lake's depth and the dense Durmitor pine forest surrounding it.

We went around the Black Lake, it was cloudy on our visit but already quite nice. Must be stunning when it's sunny. Wear good hiking shoes when going around the lake, it's not always a walk in the park. You can hire a boat to go onto the lake. It seems to us, Montenegro is still under development regarding tourists,... More

As it is s part of national park I was expecting more than crowded noisy place with boats kayaks and terrible lack of good signing of treks. The asfalt road is so not matching there. If you want to feel real mountains band hear the nature go higher and farther from the lake. Just for getting there you have to... More

Not a big deal. You have to pay 3 Euro for entrance, but the wood here is the same as in other places, and the lake is small and not of particular beauty

We stayed in Zabljak so we could walk to the national park although there is lots of free parking on the road at the entrance. €3 cash is all you need to enter the national park, the black lake is the first lake you come too. The hotel told us there was no food and drink in the park but... More

Next time I am really sure I will rent a kayak or boat to see the view from the lake. There were boats to be rented.

Many walking paths around the lake and few informative points on the flora and fauna of the region. Sturdy shoes are a must for those planning a full tour of the lake.

Nice, calm atmosphere. Lots of trails around the lake. It can be quite cold in the summer, depending on the weather. If it is a cold, rainy day there is no point climbing above the lake to get a panoramic view, but it is still nice to walk around the lake or take one of the forrest trails.

Near Zabljak. A kind of short walk around the lake. Most of it easy except some places with high stairs. Beautiful view.

I visited the black lake during a day with Montenegro M travel company (brilliant people) while visiting Durmitor national park. I came away wishing so much I'd stayed overnight at the national park, I would have loved to have spent more time there. Plenty of carparking. A tarmac path (so suitable for wheelchairs/pushchairs) led to the lake. When we were... More
