    Tara Canyon

    Tara River Canyon, Montenegro, is the second largest canyon in the world after the Colorado River. It is 82 kilometers long and the last 36 kilometers constitute the border between Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Montenegro. The canyon at its deepest is around 1,300 meters deep. These parameters make the Tara River Canyon among deepest river canyon in Europe and indeed the world. The canyon stretch within Montenegro is protected as a part of Durmitor National Park and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Piva Canyon Road.

    Piva River Canyon Road is a scenic ride in the southwest of Montenegro near the border with Bosnia and Herzegovina. The road's winding design, provides miles of stunning views through twisty hair pin corners, high elevations and steep grades. It is a feat of engineering in itself, clinging to the cliffs and passing through 56 small and unlit tunnels carved out of the stone. The River Piva, one of most spectacular rivers in Montenegro cuts through canyon 33 km long and deep up to 1,200 meters. River generates immense power used for the power station of Mratinje which dammed the canyon in 1975. The dam is 220 meters high, one of the highest in Europe and the view from the top is astonishing. The dam created Lake Piva, third largest in Montenegro with maximum depth of 188 meters. Situated at elevation of 675 meters above the sea level, making it the most elevated artificial reservoir in the world.

    Black Lake is a glacial lake, located on Mount Durmitor, at an elevation of 1,416 m. It is the largest and the best known of 18 glacial lakes on the mountain. Lake is filled by numerous mountain streams, the best known being Mlin Creek. Other streams have no name because they appear periodically, when snow from Mount Durmitor is melting. The lake is easily accessible, as it is within walking distance from the center of the town of Žabljak. A 3.5 km walking path circles around entire lake, and it is a popular destination for recreation and hiking. Many mountain trails lead from it to other smaller lakes around Žabljak.
