Itinerary

Activity Note:Depending on which direction of ascent to Prutaš we choose, this tour can be characterized as moderate (direction from Dobri Do), to challenging (direction from Todorov Do). Extending the tour to Škrčka Lakes, makes the both tours even more challenging.

The safest, easiest and the most beautiful hiking experience and our preferred trail, is the trail that goes from Dobri Do, via Škrčko Ždrijelo to the top of Prutaš at 2393.

Meet & Greet

The planned departure from Žabljak is planned at 8 o’clock. If you prefer the tour to start earlier or later, just let us know in advance. We shall pick you up at your address, and after a tour briefing, we are ready to go. 

The first part of the morning will be a short, 18.5km ride from Žabljak via “prijevoj Sedlo” (pass Saddle) to Šarban (Dobri Do) which is our starting point for the Prutaš hike.

Ascent to Prutaš

Our usual start is from Šarban and during the next 2-3 hours with a total ascent of 650m over the 4km trail, we shall reach this magnificent, grass covered peak. This access is from the southern side via “Škrčko ždrijelo” (2114m) and is considered the best and easiest access to Prutaš.

The other side of the ascent to Prutaš is on the side of Todorov Do. This is the steepest path of ascent to the top of Prutaš and if preferred, can alternatively be used as a starting point.

From the “Škrčko ždrijelo” there is an excellent view of the highest peaks of Durmitor such as “Bobotov kuk”, “Bezimeni vrh” and Planinica.

Late Lunch and Farewell

Once back to Žabljak, get ready for the most delicious lunch of your lifetime. A beautiful mix of traditional Montenegrin, organic food will be served. 

The best way to introduce Durmitor cuisine is to try the food made by the local organic producers, and Funky Tours bring you the best of it.

Trying Montenegrin mountain side dishes such as “cicvara” (traditional dish made from milk, cheese, cream (kajmak) and flour), “kačamak” (or polenta, famous dish prepared usually from corn flour, served with yoghurt, cheese and kajmak) and variety of “japraci” (grinded beef meat with spices rolled and boiled into vine leaves or layers of onion), are always a good choice.

One of the most famous specialties of the Durmitor region is lamb meat. If you opt slowly cooked and then baked, or alternatively slowly cooked in milk, the taste will simply blow you away.

After the lunch we are saying goodbye until your next adventure with Funky Tours.
