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 penisula. Welcome to the Balkan mountains, a unique nature park!
We leave at 06:30 am from Nis, Vojvode Bojovic Square, at the City Hall. Driving along on the main road through the Sicevo Gorge to Pirot, and farther into the heart of the mountain. Through the majestic villages of the mountain, Rsovci, Visocka Rzana, Brlog we arrive at the Dojkinci village from where we head on the magnificent hiking trail along the Dojkinci river valley. During an easy hiking route, 4 km long, we visit the Tupavica waterfall, one of the most beautiful waterfalls in this part of the Balkan mountains. We return by the same trail to Dojkinci. We continue our trip to the Rsovci village. Lunch break. We visit a medieval church dedicated to the Saints Peter and Paul, with frescoes dating back to 12th century. The church is distinguished by its location in the rock, and by the famous fresco of Christ the Youth. The fresco is unique in serbian fresco-painting since it represents Christ as a partially bald youth. This 2,5 km long route is not difficult, and it requires basic level of physical fitness. We visit spring of Jelovica and Rosomačko grlo (canyon), a unique natural rarity, where water cascades from one “pot” to another. After visiting the canyon, we return to Niš. We arrive in Niš in the evening. The programme ends.
