Black Lake and Nevidio Canyon - relaxation and adventure
If you are looking for a real adventure, wild waterfalls of the Nevidio canyon and also the calm and mysterious waters of Black Lake.
Three kilometers southwest of Zabljak, with which it is onnected by an asphalt road, is Black Lake, the largest and most famous lake in Durmitor and the second largest mountain lake in Montenegro. Black Lake is the most recognizable element of the entire Žabljak area, and also one of the most famous natural beauties of Montenegro. It is located below the mountain top of Medjed, as a guardian and protector, and is covered with thick conifers, which together with Medjed are reflected in its blue-green depths.
When the snow begins to melt, a strong spring of Celina erupts beneath it, crashing noisily into white waterfalls into a lake made up of two bodies of water. Small and Large Lakes, which are separated by a narrow surface of the mainland, called the "riverbed" make up the Black Lake located at an altitude of 1418 meters. The small lake is 49.1 meters deep and the large one 24.5 meters. The water temperature in summer exceeds 22 degrees, so during the hot summer months, this lake is a real paradise for swimmers.
However, Black Lake is an excellent choice in May, whether you are in a family environment or want to spend pleasant moments with a loved one, so we warmly recommend a relaxing walk around the lake.
