Zabljak – Durmitor has justified this year too its title of the leading center in mountain tourism. After an exquisite pre-season the guests from everywhere started coming in larger numbers to Zabljak. Group and individual visit in hotels these days on Zabljak is very good. Weekend houses started working well too. Numerous tents have been spread in camps, and in town one can see busses and vehicles with plates from all over Europe. The shores of Crno and Vrazje lake are crowded with swimmers. Tara is full of boats and kayaks, and more and more of those who crave for challenges of climbing on heights from which one can see entire Montenegro are going towards the summits of Durmitor
On first day of July people started to look for a free place which takes us back in the years when all records were broken.
Well aware that without good preparations there is no life; tourist workers have prepared the season well. NP Durmitor especially because they own gems to which the nature was generous, Tara and its canyon, beauties under double protection. They own also Gorske oci (Hill’s eyes) – 18 glacial lakes. They own Durmitor, rain forests of the canyon of Susica and Draga. Director Tomo Pajovic says that in all segments of action this is the most visited pre-season in the last 15 years.
When I say successful I am thinking of rafting and kayak on Tara, visits of Crno jezero and the same named national restaurant with rich offer of meals of national cuisine. Columns of hikers are moving over the marked paths on Durmitor – and there are 60 kilometers of marked paths on Durmitor. Natural collection with several hundreds of exhibits provokes great interest. That is the case too in mountain home in Skrka in motel “Radovan luka” and the shops on the Home of Park and on Crno lake are richly supplied with authentic souvenirs, books, prospects, brochures, and DVD films about the park. Except Crno and Vrazje lake almost all tourists are interested in other lakes especially Zminje, Modro, Valoviti, and Riblje lake – said Pajovic and added that for such an impression of visitor quality preparations have been made last summer.
They were received by arranged starting point for rafts with new equipment and easier approach to water. The construction of the restaurant on Radovan luka is in terminating phase and it did not distract the functioning of the same named hotel, nor did it disturb the peace on extremely beautiful plateau for camping. We have renewed the tourist signalization and with the help of the employed people in the campaign ‘Let’s make it clean” we are maintaining cleanness and preservation of numerous gems of nature on a daily basis – said Pajovic and pointed out that every suggestion of the visitors will be gladly accepted such as the one that the massif of Dumritor lacks safety ropes which will be places in cooperation with the mountaineering association and GSS at the expense of the national park.
