Visit Bosnia’s highest and most isolated mountain village Lukomir at 1,469 meters above sea level. The medieval traditional lifestyles of the Dinaric highlanders are still practiced here, providing a unique window into Europe’s ancient past. Traditional dress, the occasional turban and fez are still worn and go hand-in-hand without the conveniences of modern everyday life such as electricity and running water. After an hour and a half drive through Bjelašnica’s hinterlands we arrive in Lukomir, Bosnia’s highest and most isolated mountain village at 1,469m high. At the edge of the village you will be treated with a rare view of Rakitnica Canyon, which drops 800m below, and the neighboring Obalj and Visočica Mountains. You will be introduced to the villagers and their fascinating lifestyles. It is a truly unique opportunity to find out firsthand from the villagers how they live in this beautiful but difficult environment.
After a short walk through the Lukomir village, we hike along Obalj’s side to the 40 m Peruće Waterfall. After cooling ourselves off at Peruće we return to Gornji (upper) Lukomir for a traditional homemade lunch prepared by our hosts or a picnic lunch on the green grass. At the end off the day you will also be presented with an opportunity to see and/or purchase local handicraft.
The total hiking time is 3 hours and is of medium difficulty.
