Tour plan:

Departure in front of the hotel at 7:00 a.m. Driving on the highway to Vladičin Han and the main road through the village of Korbevac near Vranjska Banja Spa to Kriva Feja and the mountain lodge “Besna Kobila” located at 1461 m.

The road through the virtues of Southern Serbia, so-called “The Russian road” was built by the Kuban Cossack division almost a century ago. Many of the capable Russian builders gave their lives in the process, because the work was exhausting, and the terrain was inaccessible and mountainous. The Russian road starts from the village of Korbevac and reaches Kriva Feja, and then on macadam, over Besna kobila Mountain, through untouched nature, leads to the city of Bosilegrad. The total length of this section is about 70 km. Monuments to the Cossacks were erected in the village of Korbevac and on Besna kobila Mountain, in memory of what they did and gave to the Serbian people.

After a short break at the mountain lodge, start hiking to the peak of Besna kobila (1923 m), via the peak of Musulj (1777 m). The path to the top is not technically demanding, it is 5 km long and can be crossed in about two hours of easy walking. Return by road to the mountain lodge. Lunch break in the mountain lodge. Departure for Niš. Arrival in Niš in the evening. The end of the program.
