There is no such high mountain range which is so fantastic and incredible that could compare with Durmitor and Prokletije, but at the same time not so visited, even unsufficciently known to mountaineers, as is Bioč. Maybe the most important reason for that is the fact that Bioč is not so rich with water springs.
Also, the climbing of each peak on Bioč is a wholeday route. In any case, together with Durmitor, Prokletije and Komovi, Bioč range belong for sure to the group of 4 most beautiful and most impressive mountain ranges of Montenegro. Together with mountain ranges of Maglić, Volujak and Vlasulja, Bioč create a beautiful mountain area with many high peaks, beautifully lakes, valleys and plateous. From all of them, Bioč is the highest one with its Veliki Vitao (2397 m) peak. Bioč is also the highest mountain range in NW part of Montenegro. Bioč range stretches between the Stabanska Jezera lakes on the south, Pivsko Jezero lake on the east, Mratinje valley on the north, and is connected with Maglić, Trnovački Durmitor and Volujak mountains.
Bioč mountain has a specific, unique and chaotic outlook and its wildness is the main reason of its amazing and impressive beauty. Most impressive group of the peaks in Bioč are Vitlovi peaks, specially their north side which you can see from one very special point, placed 1 km north from Veliki Vitao. That amazing point is called Bubreg (2339 m). If you want to witness amazing and impressive outlook of Bioč and specially its Vitlovi group, don’t miss Bubreg!
