RIVER LJESTANICA AND WATERFALL SKAKALA-DAILY EXCURSION
The river Ljestanica is located in the Vraneska valley, near Bijelo Polje. It is about 4800 meters long and springs in the upper Lijeska, flows through the village of Lijeska throughout its course, and flows into the river Ljubovidja. The upper course of Ljestanica is extremely picturesque, from the very source of the river, which is popularly known as Ljestanska glava. A footpath leads to the spring, which offers an excellent view of several waterfalls and rapids. The terrain is accessible and especially suitable for visiting in the period from May to October. A few hundred meters from the source is one of the most beautiful but also the least known waterfalls in Montenegro, Skakala waterfall. Below the Skakala waterfall there are more than 20 smaller pools and waterfalls. In terms of its attractiveness, the Skalala waterfall is reminiscent of the Gostilje waterfall on Zlatibor or the Lisine waterfall in eastern Serbia.
The spring of river Ljestanica
Group meeting in the center of Bijelo Polje (branch office of the Rams Tourist Agency). Transport to Tomasevo, from where we start hiking. The spring of Ljestanica is about 6.5 km away from the main road, of which about half is asphalt, and the rest is macadam. The path leads through the village of Lijeska, where you can enjoy the beautiful rural landscape, traditional architecture and of course the fresh air. After almost two hours of walking, we arrive at the destination - the Head of Lestanica, where you will enjoy the untouched nature with the murmur of water. This place is ideal for a break and lunch that you brought with you (or provided by organizer). After the rest, we go way to the Skakala waterfall, which is the largest of several waterfalls located on the river Ljestanica. It is only a few hundred meters away from the spring. The descent path is steep, so it is recommended to be careful. Return to the same route at the agreed time. There is a possibility to visit a rural household, tasting brandy and cheese. Return to Bijelo Polje.
