Mala Crna Gora Village

As we continue our Durmitor Ring adventure, we visit one of the most interesting villages, not only in Montenegro, but in the whole region of Balkans – the famous village of “Mala Crna Gora” (Little Montenegro). 

It is located at an altitude of 1700m, at the edge of stunning Sušica canyon, the village is snow-blocked from November to May, as the road is mostly inaccessible during the winter time. At the village, get ready to meet a few of the remaining locals, possibly be invited for a rakija, and admire the lifestyle of true Durmitor nomads.

At the bottom of the Sušica canyon, there is an amazing Sušica lake. The lake is of periodical nature, especially being beautiful during the early spring days. Usually in the summertime, when large underground streams drop down, the lake disappears underground until the next winter.
