An ease continuation of the introduction to the impressive experience of the massif of Durmitor and its wild beauty and strength.In the direction from one attraction of the Durmitor NP to another. e.i. Zminicko and Black Lakes, everywhere they walk, the hiker are offered to visit the local household and enjoy the hospitality of local population. Expanses and impressive landscapes of Sinjajevina mountain, sparse in forest, in this area are also characterized by distant houses, and households livinig in this area throught the year are real rarities. Hiking through Sinjajevina mountain, poor in water, begins in this direction on Zabojsko jezero, one of the most beautiful lakes in the Durmitor NP.

Surprising section with Scottish-like landscapes (maybe because of the light rain aha). I camped by Zimničko Jezero (some spots on the right when you arrive to the lake), then by the church/sheltered picnic table in Okrugljak the next night (although quite windy). Owners of the restaurant in Zabojsko Jezero are lovely, you can also sleep there in small cabins if you want to have a shorter hiking day. The way down to Mojkovac was actually straightforward: GPS is not wrong, there is a path going down straight to the town. Go to Topovi, after the small Yugoslav monument there will be markings on the left that kind of follow GPS track. After Mojkovac, Džambas hut was closed but the lower floor of the hut is always open and can serve as an emergency shelter in case of bad weather (a few beds, some blankets).

Asfalt road at the beginning, then you have mostly gravel road. Trail is on some parts really nice, scenery is mostly grassy fields, which are a nightmare in lowcut shoes (a lot of grass inside which is really painfull). No visible trail on Veliki Kurozeb. Those small villages with katuns are very beautiful, especially Okrugljak. I saw a sign for some accommodations in Njeguvuđa (on photo). I think this shelter location katun Okrugljak is wrong, because there is a signbook by the church on the hill on Okrugljak. It's really nice to stop there for a break, you have a nice shade under the roof (on photo). Be carefull with water around Veliki Kurozeb, because there is not a lot of it. You can ask for it in some houses in Pašino polje, but it's off the trail and I don't know if people live there the whole year. There is a small spot for a tent on Veliki Kurozeb. Right after a descent from Veliki Kurozeb there are people in two houses, but they live there just during the summer. We asked them for water, because there is none around. They need to bring it with a car. There is a good spring right next to Zabojsko lake (on the map). We slept by those katuns that Jérémy is mentioning in a comment, nice place, you need to go of the trail at the sign for water on a rock. There is a good spring few minutes by walk below katuns. In Okrugljak there are springs as well. Planinarski dom Ckara was closed, but you can pitch your tent and you can find very good spring close to it-go to the toilet and then take a trail to the right, just few min to it. Because of previous comments we left a trail at 63km and stayed on main gravel road. There you can find another good water source. In Mojkovac there are few big supermarkets, water (on map). I can recommend eating in a bakery at 67,35km, very cheap and good food-two bureks, one baklava and one ice-cream for less than 4eur. Good water source almost at the end of the trail-Vrioca. Hut Džambas was closed.

Beautiful, eventhough ~65% Gravelroad. Very special landscape, completely different to anything before on the trail.. As mentioned befor, this wide plains and far views are really stunning. Shop and cafe in Njeguvoda exist(200m away from GPS trail down the big road), Restaurant at Zminicko jezero,next water Zabojsko jezero. After Okruglijak a lot of springs along the way. 500 meters after the Ckara Hut - closed because of storm damages - there is a marked trail down to the Rabrenovic Camp site.You can't see it on the App Map but it exists, just walk up the short gravel road up that little hill in the curve and there the trail marks start (photo). Great hosts with a great camp for a good price
