About Trnovacko lake

At the bottom of Maglic Mountain, at an altitude of 1520 meters, lies one of the last jewels of unspoiled nature in its emerald green beauty.
We start from Tjentište with our off-road vehicles to primeval forest Perucica, where we take a quick look at the last beauty in Europe before continuing on to Prijevor. After an easy two hour walk from Prijevor to Suha jezerina, followed by a half an hour medium difficulty climb, we arrive at the lake.
When you get there, you will see an unbelievable sight, forget your tiredness, and realize that the effort was worthwhile – a huge, crystal clear and dark green lake, and on its mirror-like surface, you can see the surrounding mountains.

Like sights from the Swiss Alps! When you take a look around on these mountains that surround the lake, you have the feeling that they are tasked to protect the lake with their strong shoulders and hide this jewel of nature.
The nature that surrounds the lake offers many possible tours and climbs. Climb to Maglic Mountain, the highest peak in BiH at 2386 meters in altitude, is the most attractive. The path that starts from the lake to the top is one of the easiest directions to climb on Maglic, and most mountain lovers choose this route. The average lake temperature is 20°C plus,and although the lake altitude is 1520 meters, combined with mountain sun allows all day swimming and refreshing. Not to mention the lake is rich with fish and fishing possibilities are inexhaustible (after paying fishing permit to local guard). It is no wonder why during the summer tourist season,hundreds of tourists, campers and fishermen visit the lake. If you want to visit this untouched jewel of nature, at least for few hours, be sure you won’t regret.
