Hiking Croatian mountains

Hiking on Mosor Mountain

There are three Mountains that surround the city of Split. On the eastern side lies the Mountain Kozjak, to the west the mountain Perun and the highest of the three Mosor, is sandwiched in the middle. The highest peak of Mosor mountain is called Veliki Kabal which is 1339m high!  We start our hike after we take a short 30 min drive from Split which takes us through the Dalmatian hinterland into the village Sitno gornje (590 m). After a preliminary brief, we commence the hike along the old incomplete Napoleon road which serves as a terrific warm-up. The road leads us up a mountain trail and after a 40m hike during which we enjoy beautiful views looking on to the city of Split, the awe-inspiring coastline and islands. On the other side we observe the impressive Mosor mountain ridge. Afterwards, we come to a traditional Stone Mountain house (868m) where we take a break to refresh before continuing our trek. At this point we decide whether we will hike to the 1325m peak Vickov stup which will take us 1.5 hours or we choose an easier route to one of the nearby peaks Istarska glavica or Girometina vidilica. After a breather, where will be enjoying an amazing view immersed in the surrounding nature that the mountain Mosor offers, we will be walking down to the village Sitno Gornje happily tired from our memorable hiking adventure!

Enjoy the view of the sea and islands and on the other side beautiful landscapes of Dalmatian countryside!
