Enjoy lush landscapes, pastures, meadows, hills, and the alluring play of wild horses at sunset! Discover the beauty of mountain rivers and clear streams that suddenly transform into untamed waterfalls often above 60 meters high. Climb a smaller peak, or go down a cave, simply for the joy of it. The braver can rappel down a cliff, and the bravest down a river canyon. Meet wild, pristine, exceptional nature. Yes, meet Balkan, the mountain that gave its name to the Balkan peninsula. Welcome to the Balkan mountains, a unique nature park!

Tour plan:

Departure from Niš in front of the hotel at 07:30 am. We travel on the single carriageway road through Sićevo gorge to Pirot, and then to the very heart of Balkan mountain. Through the astounding villages of Balkan, we arrive in an authentic Balkan mountain village, Topli Do. We set out on a hiking tour over the Javor river valley to the Koljćin waterfall (Koljća’s Leap). Koljćin waterfall at the highest elevation of all the waterfalls in the Javor river basin. Due to its distance from Topli Do and inaccessible terrain leading to it, the waterfall remained unknown to the wider public. The unmarked track leading to the Koljćin waterfall is 24 km long and very strenuous, requiring a high level of physical fitness and excellent agility. Return to the village though Dugo Bilo. Transfer to Niš in the evening hours. The end of the program.
