by Discover Montenegro
The komovi mountain range in Montenegro.




Together with Durmitor range and Prokletije range, Komovi range belong to the group of the three most impressive and most magnificent mountain ranges of Montenegro and also of Dinarci Alps. Komovi range is situated in the eastern part of Montenegro and it stretches between the farthest upstream parts of the Lim river to the east and the Tara river on the west, to Drcka river to the north and Prokletije with mount Planica to the south.

From the south and east it is encircled with a complex of Montenegrin and Albanian mountain range known as Prokletije, and on the north by the Bjelasica mountain. This mountain massif of Komovi, 40 kilometer long and 30 kilometer wide, is encrusted from all sides by spatial plateaus at average altitude of 1900 meter.  Stavna and Ljuban to the north, Rogam to the west, Crne to the south and Varda to the east. The highest peaks of Komovi mountain are: Kucki Kom (2487 meter), Ljevorijecki Kom (2469 meter, north peak of Kucki Kom) and Vasojevicki Kom (2460 meter). A tame village Konjuhe is located on the east side in the vicinity on the foot of Komovi mount, in the valley of the Peruchica river. Mountain massif Komovi sharply rises from that place at the altitude of 850 meter as a gigantic mountain pyramid. From the highway in the vicinity the mountain passage at Tresnjevik a magnificent and unforgettable panorama of northern side opens up with northern side of three rocky peaks of mountain Komovi with its abundant forest cover at the foot of it.

Eastern and southeastern side of this mountain belongs to Polimlje and to municipality Andrijevica. It is the eastern side of Vasojevicki Kom which, from its top (2460 m), slopes down to Stavna and Varda (1900 m) and to the Lim river at 700 meter. Confluent valleys along the Lim and Tara rivers are sharply cutting lower parts of Komovi mountain in radial manner and make this area accessible from all sides. This area is known for its direct openness and vicinity of the shortest tourist-frequented route between southeast Montenegro and its coastal region and a favorable continuity and exposition of its slopes. The length of potential slopes at Stavna and Carine is 3762 meter and average sloping angle of topographic area ranges from 11 degrees at Stavna to 19 degrees at Carine. These mountains represent shaped plateaus and slopes which lie at altitudes ranging from 1500 to 2000 meter. Stavna and Carine stand out with their big potential for developing tourism. Komovi mountain fascinates everyone with its diversity of natural attractions. One can see all the potency of nature through endless geological periods. Komovi peaks are encircled with cuttings formed around springs in pre-glacial water sources. Basic morphological characteristics of cuttings are their vertical and conical shape, always being bare, with open asymmetric sides, rugged edges, and they are situated below the blocks.

To the west, below the cliffs of Kucki Kom, there are Rogam cutting and Pricelje cutting with little lakes and ponds. In the south side below the very top of Kucki Kom there is a cutting called the Popovich’s Cabin. Out of all cuttings in Komovi mountains the most conspicuous is Medjukomlje in most authentic in the northern side of Komovi. In the eastern slopes of Vasojevic’s Kom, pre-glacial relief did not caused formation of cuttings. Traces of double glaciation can be seen in glacial depressions and morenic alluvions at Stavni and Vardi. There, at the shepherd settlement at Varda, rice big morenic walls (very bog rocky material that glacial rivers and snow avalanches had torn from the ground and sides of tidal water-channel and, at the end of kinetic power, heaped there without any order). Almost everywhere around Komovi ridges from their very tops there are big heaps of sandy and rocky materials “tochila” and “sipari” that were made out of the processes of erosion (“tochila” are shallow and narrow unformed oval troughs, while “sipari” are heaped sand and stone materials that fell off and heaped at the foot of tochilo and they fill out the bottom of cuttings). They look like rivers of rock as they go down to the cuttings and river valleys of Perucica and Kucka rivers. The biggest “sipari” is located on north-eastern side of Vasojevicki Kom and it is almost 3 kilometer long. These unusual valleys and “rocky chaos” complete an outstanding composition on this space.
