From the starting point, we drive to Ćurevac view point at 1700 meters altitude. From the clearance one can get the view of the deepest part of the Tara canyon and the village of Tepca which is the oldest inhabited place in the Žabljak municipality. Then we drive to another clearance Štuoc from where one can get a panoramic view of Žabljak, the ‘Black Lake’ and the northern part of the Durmitor massif. We continue the drive to the village of Crna Gora. On the way there there are a few clearances where we will make shorter breaks. The village itself is very interesting due to its small number of inhabitants working on traditional jobs of agriculture and cattle keeping. In the winter time, the village is completely cut off from the world because of high snowfall. From the village, we drive and walk down to the Sušica river canyon and its lake. This place truly reflects the beauty of Montenegrin wilderness. In the spring, the lake is filled with water, which floats into the Tara river until June, and than it turns into a beautiful grassland perfect for taking a break.
From the lake, we ascend up the road up the steep edges of the canyon up to the Piva mountain plateau. Different from the Durmitor rocks, Piva mountain is made of rolling hills, grasslands and old forests. Thousands of sheep can be seen on the grazing fields as well as the breathtaking Piva canyon. Since this tour is circular (thus the Ring of Durmitor), from the Piva mountain we then start returning back to Durmitor. On the way we stop for photographs of the most beautiful parts of Durmitor: Todorev do,Prutaš,Boljske grede,Dobri do,Valovito Lake, Modro Lake and Sedlo mountain range at 1907 meters of altitude. Arrival back to Žabljak.
