Before the Vratlo pass (1737 m above sea level), the road leads along serpentines which help to overcome the large altitude difference between the end of the Lipovska valley (1200 m above sea level) and the Sinjavina plateau (1700 m above sea level). With a fantastic view, we come out on the Vratlo bend, from where the cycling measurement through the katuns and landscapes begins. Only a few kilometers cycling ride from the village of Njegovuđa in Žabljak, there is one of the 18 lakes in the Durmitor region, Zminičko lake. Get ready for a fascinating view of this gem of nature, and if the weather allows, to swim in it at an impressive 1286 meters above sea level, which attracts a large number of nature lovers to this lake. The lake, which gets its water from the spring melting of abundant snow from the surrounding mountains, is lulled into a bay, surrounded by coniferous forests, which trees are reflected in the calm water of the lake, giving it a color you can hardly see anywhere else. Who does not want to be in a bigger crowd by the lake, can enjoy a lunch package or refreshment in the beautiful ambience and courtyard of the church of St. Georgije in Zminica. In local household near Zminičko lake we will have a dinner and overnight.
