About
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.

An adult ticket is 3 euros, and you need to pay an additional 2 euros for car parking. The lake itself is nice and you can even spend a longer day there - swimming, picnicking, walking. It's a beautiful place. You can also walk along the hiking trail around the lake. It starts by crossing the bridge next to the restaurant. It took us about 1 hour and 45 minutes and we covered 5 kilometers. The trail itself is exciting and up and down rather than flat.

Our family of 5 really enjoyed swimming in the lake and hanging out for a few hours after doing other activities. We went twice and it was very busy at the weekend, but it's easy to get away from the crowds by walking round to the smaller lake which takes about 30 minutes. There is a small charge to get in but throughly worth it in our view.

We came in May so during a lot of snow melt... its a beautiful lake and the hike around its perimeter is fantastic but beware at this time of year the waterfalls flood the path in its entirety so we had to take off shoes and socks and traverse them bare foot.
This added to the experience for us but I appreciate others would not want to walk through 2C fresh icemelt water...

It is indeed a very beautiful lake and a nice walk for those who can’t do the big hikes in durmitor. However, it is just a lake with big mountain in background… nice color but… this is it. If like many people you only do this visit for the day, you will have to pay 3 euros/person (fair) plus 2 euros for a non existent parking situated in a (public) street they can’t even control. The extra for parking seems new this year and is a complete rip off.

Lovely walk around the black lake (2 lakes combined) which takes around 1.5 hours, the walk itself is not difficult with just one set of rocky stairs. The surrounding views are beautiful. A few people were swimming in the lake also.

We were staying in Portonovi so it was a three hour drive each way ... Ideally I would suggest you combine this with other things to do in the area (eg the bridge) otherwise it's a long way to go to just do this walk. It started pouring just as we were leaving so we had to abandon the rest of our plans.

Exceptionally beautiful lake. Only 20-30 minutes by foot from centre of Zabljak. I also recommend walking around the lake (approx 45-60 minutes walk), but be aware that you need appropriate footwear because the trail has many roots from trees, rocks, etc, so going in flip flops can be dangerous.

Amazing nature! Durmitor National Park includes a mountain and several lakes of which Black Lake is the most beautiful. The hiking trail around the Black Lake is amazing, of medium difficulty and passes through springs that flow down the mountain. All recommendations.

The place itself is beautiful, however it was quite crowded, so we did not spend much time here.
Easily accessible from the parking lot, there is a surface road leading to the lakes (so baby stollers and wheelchars won't be a problem). Also there is a path in the woods with fresh air, mushrooms. Those who pay attention find cranberries and raspberries along the path.

attractive lake with mountains behined. Easy acces - just a short walk from the parking. There is a small entrance fee. There is a nice path around the like- takes an hour or so. The water is suitable for a swim in the summer
