Zelengora is an immense expanse, interspersed with green forests and even greener meadows and pastures. The particular charms of Zelengora are its ‘mountain eyes’ – clear glacial lakes in which mountain peaks covered with snow are reflected.
The most beautiful ornament and pride of the green mountain
Because of its morphology, the massif of Zelengora represents a natural fortress, situated between Herzegovina and Bosnia, with high cliffs and steep slopes covered with dense forests, surrounded by deep canyons of wild rivers, and intersected by cold streams. It hides and protects rare entrances to the gentle expanse of the green mountain. It has been a foremother and shelter to all the nations in this part of the Balkans.

The Tara and Piva rivers converge and create the Drina. All three rivers together with the river Sutjeska, the right tributary of the Drina, make a geographic entity of extraordinary natural values, where two national parks and one nature park are located. The Tara Canyon is the deepest in Europe, and it is under the protection of UNESCO because of its uniqueness and beauty.
Three wild rivers merged into one
The Sutjeska meanders through the mighty canyon, carving stone cliffs, takes a rest in outlets, and continues to churn and roar, hurrying to meet the Drina. On this short journey, it is joined by numerous small rivers and streams, which flow down steeply from the foothills of Maglić, Volujak, and Zelengora.

It is possible to visit Tođevac as part of the cultural heritage tour or after the activity of canyoning, which ends by coming out of the Hrčavka Canyon – below the remains of this town, which used to be an important fortified town.
Attractive canyoning as well as cultural heritage
Even though it is placed at a relatively low elevation, Tjentište is characterized by cool summers, and it is especially pleasant at night when the cold air from the surrounding mountains fills the valley.
In the former SFRY, Tjentište had more than a million visits a year.
