Hiking trail

Ljubinje – Trebinje

Starting from Ljubinje, from the city, goes through the shortest possible bond Ljubinje – Trebinje. Almost the entire trail is gravel road. The total length of the track is 39 km.

Initially, the trail goes through the Ljubinje fields to the village of Krajpolje. From Krajpolje, the trail continues on to the village of Žabica from where it is planned that the Mountaineering Association in Ljubinje, Soko, marks the path to the highest peak in their municipality to Ilija (1333m a.s.l.) which is also in the area of Mt. Bjelasnica. Away from Žabica begins a rise to an area that is called Plan valley where there are pastures.

This field is rich in apple orchards, plants of lavender and immortelle and tobacco, which is typical for this area. Moving on to the Plan valley, the trail climbs that way. When you pass through the Plan valley, which is the highest point of the route in this part, you come to the crossroads with posted signs Via Dinarica Blue paths, where two tracks are shared, one of which goes towards Zagora and comes down to the village Žakovo in Popovo field. That part oft he track also attaches to the existing marked path towards The Motka top, the highest peak of the mountain of Bjelasnica. Towards left we continue to the Begovic tower or to Trebinje.

Moving on forward, the trail goes via the plateau called Trebinje hill, from where the roads separate to various villages and also passes next to the Begovic tower. The combination of asphalt and gravel road, after once cultivated, intended for foreigners, the mouflon hunting grounds, of which today remains only a few outbuildings and artificial ponds where the mouflons were fed with water, through the old Austrian drive path, which is well preserved and interesting, we come up to the path of the northern transversal lines to Trebinje. Following the right branch we would come to the Klicanj top, but the path continues through the left branch, which is also an old Austrian road to the next intersection between the Kovlo top and Leotar top. Although it is possible to climb to the Leotar top this way, there is another more frequently used path that goes directly to that top. After this intersection, after about half an hour, we climb down to the city of Trebinje.
