Tara National Park
Tara National Park - A mountain in the west of Serbia with the highest peak, Kozji Rid (1,591 m), which is known for its autochthonous coniferous forests, which make it the most wooded mountain in Serbia. Out of over 1,000 different plants, about 20 are endemic, among them the most famous is the Pančić spruce, a symbol of Tara - a relic of the Tertiary and a Balkan endemic that survived the Great Ice Age in very limited habitats in the middle course of the Drina river.
On this tour, we will go to one of the most beautiful viewpoints, Crnjeskovo, from where you can see the Rača canyon. We will also take the circular hiking trail to the Jarevac lake, then to Borovo Brdo. In winter snowy conditions, this trail will provide you with a real boon 😇.
