Hiking, climbing, mountaineering.
There are few easy hikes. Most of them are day hikes of at least 6-8h.
The easiest, but nevertheless sporty hike starts shortly behind the restaurant Maja Karanfil. At the signposts, turn right (in the direction that no signpost points) and follow the path that leads you through the forest to the tree line. Then it way goes on the right hand on the summit. Reward is the beautiful view.
The Grebaje Valley is a good start or stage point on the “Peaks of the Balkans Trial” through the national parks of Montenegro, Albania and Kosovo. For the entire round trip you should plan 10-13 days. Precondition for the trek in this remote mountain region are surefootedness, alpine experience and good equipment.
