This trekking is probably one of the most famous in Bosnia, but not an easy one : it's better to be in good shape to make it.
The hike start in Igman, next to the police academy, you can park easily your car by there.
|The way to take is not difficult to find, it's just next to the police academy : 50 meters in direction of Hadzici city, at the left you have a dirt road that you can take with a car (The GPS position is approximately 43,73765/18,27935).|
You have to continue on this road during some kilometers until a sign indicating the way for the Bjelasnica summit. At this point, you will need around 2h to reach the summit.
You will start to increase :-) The path is well marked and you should have no problem to follow it.
After maybe 45 minutes, you will come out of the forest, reaching an open grassland.
|As you can see, the summit is closer ! But you still need 1h-1h15 (walking slowy). |
During the autumn this part of the hike is probably the best ! Open grassland with colored trees, bjelasnica summit in background, awesome...
Just after you ride a new slope in the open grassland, you will enter in a small forest and find a house in your left, you can seat outside just in front of Bjelasnica summit.
Continue to follow the well marked path, you will arrive soon until a steep slope with rocks and small trees, take care, especially if the floor is wet.
After 20-30 minutes, you will reach a large open grassland with a good visibility until the summit, it's the last step and probably the worst ! You will need 30-45 more minutes to reach the summit.
The best reward is the wonderful view, especially if you watch to the side of the "Dugo Polje" valley (west side).
Take a good break, but don't forget the time, you have to come back :-) especially during autumn and winter : the night is coming very quickly.
