Moračke Planine Photo gallery
Moračke Planine (Morača Mountains) belongs to the group of most beautiful mountains of Montenegro. Morača Mountain range is located in the central part of Montenegro. They extend east to northwest beginning at the Tara River canyon near Kolašin town, and then along the series of beautiful peaks, of mountains: Vučje, Umovi, Sto, Crni Vrh, Tali & Stožac. The Gradista Ridge closes this series of peaks from the west while the Vratlo Pass separates it from the Jablanov Vrh (2203 m), second highest peak of Mt Sinjajevina range.
This range is limestone in composition. In geographical literature some geographers ascribe the Moraca Mountains to the Sinjajevina.
The Moračke Planine range is surrounded from the west by the Lola Ridge and plateau; from the southwest by the pasture plateau of Mt Lukavica with two impressive Zurim’s (2035 m), Mali and Veliki (little and big), and by the source of the wide Moraca river canyon on the north and northeast. The Moraca Mountains hold the distinctive summits of: Kapa Moracka – Lastva (2226 m), Zagradac (2217 m) and Stozac (2141 m) as well as the Maganik with it’s Medjedji Vrh (2139 m) and a series of other peaks at heights is over 2000 m. The Moracke Planine are topographically and climatically attractive. While the southern slopes are under the influence of the Mediterranean climate, with it’s typical foliage, their northern slopes remain snow covered for a long time and where the frigid zone flora flourish, which survived through the Ice Age melting of this part of the Balkans. The glacial lakes of Kapetanovo Jezero (Captain’s Lake) and Brnjicko (Manito) Jezero formed on the surface of the Moracke Planine.
