This is a stunning work of mother nature!!High plain dotted with mountain huts and grazing cattle, surounded by impressive mountains, the most remarkable being Durmitor massif.
For those on tight shedule or who don't want to hike, there are lovely scenic roads to drive on, with lots of marked view points with benches to sit on and admire the nature.
For more active ones, there are lots of hiking trails, with various levels of difficulty.
I have done hike around Medjed Peak, hike to Prutas and Skrcka lakes, and a hike to Crvena greda. All the trails were perfectly marked, making it almost impossible to get lost. First two trails were covered mostly by 4G mobile network, the last one mostly by 2G/3G.

Drove up to Durmitor NP and walked almost 1 mile to Black Lake. The water is snow-melt blue surrounded by pine trees. There is a paved road all the way to the lake. Several vendors along the way selling their traditional wine and jams plus knitted socks and other items. There were restrooms and a small snack bar by the lake. Boats and kayaks available for rent. Between the park and the town of Zabljak there are several rental cabins. You can hike
to three lakes in the area.

I came with little idea as to what to do in the national park, luckily I met a local who gave me great advice. Both of the following activities use the town of Zabljak as a start point.

1. Half day activity: Black lake.

From Zabljak, walk east out of town following the Main Street. After a mile you'll reach a ranger's hut where you'll be charged €3 park entrance. From there continue one mile until you reach the lake. You can circumnavigate both lakes (1 hour walk). The lakes are stunningly beautiful. Top tip: swim in the second lake away from the day tripping tourists.

2. Full day activity: climb Bobotov Kuk.

This is Montengro's highest mountain (2523m). It's not a troubling hike with some scrambling near the top and points at which assisting hand cables are available.

Take a taxi/grab a lift to the starting point Sedlo (20 min drive/€15 taxi). From there the trail is clearly marked. Follow red/white targets that are continually situated on rocks to guide you to the summit. It's a 3hr ascent/2hr descent. The starting point of Sedlo is a popular stop off/view point so it's easy to grab a lift from there.

You do not need a guide for either hike. Both are rewarding for different reasons and thoroughly worthwhile.

This breathtaking national park was formed by glaciers and is traversed by rivers and underground streams. Along the Tara river canyon, which has the deepest gorges in Europe, the dense pine forests are interspersed with clear lakes and harbour a wide range of endemic flora.

We had planned to hike here but both my husband and I had really bad cold/flu just before arriving in Montenegro so we opted not to hike but just drove through the NP and enjoyed the stunning scenery. We arrived in our own car from Bosnia and drove along the Pivsko Jezero canyon...awesome, then just before the bridge at Pluzine we turned off and climbed up and up round hairpins and through rock tunnels for better and better views of the canyon, then arrived on a stunning plateau with a few little farming villages - sheep and horses roaming the hills. We drove the route past Bobotov Kuk (highest peak in Montenegro), enjoyed a picnic lunch with stunning views of all the big peaks and then down to Pasina voda and back to the "main" road south from Zabljak. Can't recommed this highly enough - yes the road is narrow and windy and a few hairpins but the road surface is good and this was easily among the best 5 drives we've done in Europe. Make sure the weather is good before you go though!

I drove right through Durmitor National Park from one end to the other, from Pluzine to Zabljak on Sep.7. It was the drive of my life. It took the whole day with stops but take my work for it it was worth effort. It is beautiful, pristine landscaping, mountains with amazing panoramas...no words will be enough to describe this natural reservations.

Make sure your tank is full and you will not get hungry soon, there is nothing around. I stopped for a tea in Virak, a small cabin in the mountains and for lunch in Zabljak, the biggest town in the area.
If you are driving through Montenegro from Podgorica North towards Sarajevo this is the route you must take, not the fastest but definitely the most beautiful. Next I will plan a motorcycle tour, there were many riders, roads are pretty good even for a two wheeler. See my pictures.

I don't know why this attraction is for the Visitor Centre. The real attraction is the park itself. After you pass through the entry gates, there is about a 700 meter walk to Black Lake. The views of the Durmitor Mountains beyond the lake are spectacular.
There is a 3.3 kilometer walk around the lake and an option for exending that hike for another 2 kilometers. The walk is fairly level.
During the summer, which I gather is the busy season, there are food stalls, and cafes at lakeside.

Durmitor national park and the black lake is a short walkway from Zabljak. Easy to go by foot.
A lot of people walk around the lake and it looks quite easy way, but I hadn't time to do that.

The nature is amasing and stunning but I am very disapointed to see there that much garbage and so so many car tires whole lenght of the canyon.
What a pity.
Taking into account that the price of the ticket for entry on the river in canyon is so expensive (the most expensive of river in Europe if not in the world), you could organize some sort of eco-cleaning action.
Without those car tires and garbage that place will be a true paradise on Earth.

There was so much hype we read about Durmitor. This is the only national park in the world entrance fee per person to walk around in addition to car parking. At the end of the day, it was nothing spectacular. We had gone to Mont Blanc. Chamonix, Aspen, St Mortiz, Inssbrug, Zermatt and many other places in Eastern and Western Europe, America and Asia. This was a letdown!!! DO NOT waste your time.
