Studena planina

Studena planina is a mountain of the Kopaonika massif, not far from Kraljevo, located between Goč, Stolovi, and Ravna planina. The southwestern sides descend into the valley of the Ibar and Usce.

Kavgalija with 1355 m as the highest point on this mountain is located on the very ridge with a picturesque view of the surroundings. This mountain has a large number of forest roads and trails, so it can be an excellent choice to spend a weekend on its slopes. In the past, this area was an important crossroads of country roads used to transport livestock and grain, so during the winter months, strong winds blew, creating a feeling of cold. Due to such climatic features, the mountain has a name, Studena Planina (Cold Mountain).
