Grahovo – Highland heritage tour #4 / Grahovo – četvrta tura u sklopu projekta Nasljeđe planinskog krajolika:
Bosansko Grahovo is a small town located in the Grahovo (Karst) field, in the very Northwest of Bosnia. The town is flanked by the Dinara mountain chain which marks the border to the nearby Dalmatian hinterland. The peak of Dinara (namegiver to the range), which is Croatia’s highest mountain is visible from the city, but the most known and exceptionally beautiful mountain is Šator (1872m, „Tent“) with its lake.
A famous son of the area is Gavrilo Princip who became famous for assassinating the Austrian emperor Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie in Sarajevo in 1914, which subsequently lead to the outbreak of WWI. His birthhouse was reconstructed as a museum and can be visited in village Obljaj.
Our tour starts with a drive over the picturesque Grahovo field and a offroad drive over the rugged forest trails towards Sator mountain. From the pristine mountain lake at the base of Šator we’ll hike the easy trail to Sator peak (1872m) or to a nearby smaller peak to enjoy the view. After the hike the lake is good for a refreshing swim or a break.
We’ll descend back down the dirt road to the village of Preodac where a hearty farmer’s lunch awaits us. All food is freshly homemade at the same farm and there are of course vegetarian options.
After a well-deserved break we’ll pass the valley of 300 springs and visit the mysterious abandoned castle of Momcilo. Its history is completely unknow but it’s estimated that it was built between the 14th century and around the beginning of the Ottoman invasions of BiH. For the ambitious we’ll continue to the Ledenica cave which is an amazing sight of natural beauty. It’s one of the biggest caves of the Balkans, though only 12km of its rooms are explored. There’s a comfortable loop trail leading us an hour through the many fascinating rooms.

This tour was created during our Highland heritage project, together with the young, aspiring guides Nikola Erceg, Milorad Vukobrat (Comi Wolfsbrother),

Gavrilo Mile Princip, Bosko Damjanovic and others.

The Highland heritage project aims to make a small positive change in Kanton 10, where unemployment is high, the small population dwindling and divisions and discrimination widespread. On the other side, the region is known for it’s hospitality and is rich in immensely underestimated and underpromoted highland landscapes, pristine forests and mountain ranges, which have a clear potential for the development of small-scale sustainable tourism.
Our local guides from Drvar, Grahovo, Glamoc and Livno received a training in Social media and Tour guiding and created 4 local tours. The tours were finally tested by hosting each other and infrastructure improvements were done in all locations to increase the touristic value and enjoyment.
In the medium term we hope these touristic products enhance economic opportunities for locals and strengthen regional cooperation through entrepreneurial bonds.

Bosansko Grahovo je mali grad lociran u Grahovskom kraškom polju, na samom sjeverozapadu Bosne. Grad je okružen lancem Dinarskih planina koje označavaju granicu sa obližnjim Dalmatinskim zaleđem. Vrh Dinare (po kome ovaj planinski vijenac i nosi naziv, ujedno najviša Hrvatska planina) je vidljiv iz grada, ali poznatija i izuzetno lijepa jeste planina Šator (1872m) sa jezerom. Poznato lice ovoga kraja je Gavrilo Princip koji je postao poznat zbog atentata na austrijskog prestolonasljednika Franca Ferdinanda i njegovu ženu Sofiju u Sarajevu 1914. godine, što je poslužilo kao okidač za izbijanja Prvog svjetskog rata. Kuća u kojoj se rodio u selu Obljaj je obnovljena, pretvorena u muzej i može se posjetiti.
Naša tura počinje vožnjom kroz živopisno Grahovsko polje i terenskom vožnjom po neravnim šumskim stazama ka Šator planini. Od netaknutog planinskog jezera u podnožju Šator planine pješačiti ćemo laganom stazom do vrha (1872m) ili do obližnjeg manjeg vrha da bismo uživali u pogledu. Poslije pješačenja jezero je dobro za osvježavajuće kupanje ili pauzu.
Nakon toga spustiti ćemo se nazad makadamskim putem do sela Preodac gdje naš čeka obilan domaći ručak. Sva hrana je svježa i lokalna sa istoga imanja, a takođe imaju i vegetarijanske opcije.
Poslije zaslužene pauze prošetati ćemo selom sa 300 izvora i posjetiti napuštenu misterizonu Momčilovu tvrđavu. Njena istorija je potpuno nepoznata ali je procjenjeno da je izgrađena između 14. vijeka i oko početka Otomanske invazije na Bosnu. Za ambiciozne možemo nastaviti do pećine Ledenice koja je nevjerovatan prirodni dragulj. Jedna je od najvećih pećina Balkana, iako je ispitano samo 12km njenog prostora. Tamo se nalazi ugodna kružna staza koja nas vodi oko sat vremena kroz mnoge fascinantne pećinske prostorije.
Ova tura je kreirana u sklopu projekta Nasljeđe planinskog krajolika, a u saradnji sa mladim i motivisanim vodičima Nikola Erceg, Milorad Vukobrat, Gavrilo „Mile“ Princip, Boško Damjanović i drugi.

Projekat Naslješe planinskog krajolika nastoji da kreira pozitivne promjene u Kantonu 10, gdje je nezaposlenost izrazito visoka, populacija značajno smanjena, te gdje su podjele i diskriminacija još uvijek vidljive. Sa druge strane, region je poznat po svojoj gostoljubivosti i izuzetno bogatoj podcjenjenoj i apsolutno nepromovisanoj ljepoti planinskih pejsaža, netaknutih šuma i planinskih vijenaca koji imaju izražen potencijal za razvoj mali održivih turističkih destinacija.
Naši lokalni vodiči iz Drvara, Grahova, Glamoča and Livna su kroz projekat odradili treninge u digitalnom marketingu i vodjenju tura, te su učestvovali u kreiranju 4 turističke ture. Ture su testirane izmedju njih medjusobno, odradjena su radne akcije na unapredjenju turističke infrastrukture kako bi se povećala turistička vrijednost i užitak na ovim destinacijama.
U srednjem roku nadamo se da će ovi turistički proizvodi osnažiti ekonomske prilike za lokalno stanovništvo i da će ojačati regionalnu saradnu kroz kreiranje preduzetničkih veza.

Glamoč – Highland heritage tour #3 Glamoč – Highland heritage tour #3 / Glamoč – treća tura u sklopu projekta Nasljeđe planinskog krajolika:

The Glamoč area highland is not only famous for its potatoe varieties but also very rich historically. The land has been inhabited at least since the neolithic times and many artefacts big and small have been found and well preserved – From remians of Illyrian villages on the Glamoč field over Roman times basilicas to the castles and gravestones from the middle ages and beyond, which make up to the character of this beautiful cultural hotspot.

This tour starts with an introdcution to the fascinating history of Glamoc by local historian and author Sinisa Solak. Then our experienced guides will take you to the remains of the 14th century fortress just above the city center with a great view over the highland. We’ll continue the hike through the thick forest which is often filled with a variety of mushrooms. In case you’re already hungry we can arrange a local catering with hearty homemade lunch at the picnic area before Busija lake. Afterwards we’ll follow a romantic stream to Busija lake where we can refresh before we take the final walk to the biggest Islamic headstone graveyard in Bosnia Herzegovina. Truly a fascinating sight, that lies well preserved in the middle of the Glamoic field. After we walk back to the city for a drink and/or some food.

This tour was created during our Highland heritage project, together with the young, aspiring guides Marija Marković (Hipi Duga Čarapa), Mirko Ubović, Nemanja Petković and others.

Glamočki kraj nije samo poznat po krompiru već i po bogatoj istoriji. Ovi krajevi su bili naseljeni još u doba neolita o čemu svjedoče brojni veliki i mali artefakti koji su još uvijek sačuvani. Oni uključuju ostatke ilirskog sela na Glamočkom polju, rimsku baziliku, tvrđavu i nadgrobne spomenike iz srednjeg vijeka i sve to čini Glamoč zanimljivom kulturnom destinacijom.

Naša tura starta sa uvodom u zanimljivu istoriju Glamoča koju vodi lokalni vodič i istoričar Sinisa Solak. Kratkom šetnjom dolazimo do ostataka tvrđave iz četrnaestog vijeka koja je smeštena odmah iznad grada i pruža odličan pogled na Glamočko polje. Nakon tvrđave šetnja se nastavlja kroz gustu šuma koja je stanište velikog broj različitih gljiva. Ukoliko želite postoji mogućnost organizacije domaćeg i sa ljubavlju spremljenog ručka na izletištu Busija. Tura nastavlja prateći romantične potočiće koji vode do jezera Busija gdje se možete osvježiti prije nego nastavimo ka konačnom odredištu – najveći nišana u BiH. Ovaj nadgrobni spomenik je dobro očuvan i zaista fascinantan. Tura završava povratkom do grada sa mogućnošću odlaska na piće ili večeru.

Ova tura je kreirana u sklopu projekta Nasljeđe planinskog krajolika, a u saradnji sa mladim i motivisanim vodičima Marija Marković (Hipi Duga Čarapa), Mirko Ubović, Nemanja Petković i drugi.

Livno – Highland heritage tour #2 / Livno – druga tura u sklopu projekta Nasljeđe planinskog krajolika:

The Livno karst field highland is the biggest of its kind in Europe. It has a unique endemic flora and fauna and has been settled since at least 2000 BC. Livno, the capital of Kanton 10 was first mentioned in the 9th century and lies nested under the surrounding mountains on the southern end of the Highland. It’s at a crossroad between the Adriatic coast and inland regions of Bosnia, Dalmatia, Herzegovina and Krajina.

This tour includes a guided tour of the remains of the old town on the spectacular cliff amphitheatre high above today’s center and the Bistrica spring emerging from the Rock face. A highlight is the offroad drive to Mount Cincar where around 800 wild horses are roaming freely. Our experienced guides know the population very well and will take you to meet them with enough time to experience the presence of these beautiful creatures and learn more about them. For the ambitious, a hike to Cincar peak (2006m) rewards with spectacular views over Europes biggest karst field. A short 4×4 ride then takes you back down to downtown Livno which has plenty of bars and restaurants to refuel.

This tour was created during our Highland heritage project, together with the young, aspiring guide Marin Mamuza.

———————–

Livanjsko kraško polje je jedno od najvećih u Evropi. Naseljeno je još od 2000 godine prije nove ere i krasi ga jedinstvena flora i fauna. Livno je glavni grad kantona 10 i prvi put se u istorijskim spisima spominje u devetom vijeku. Okružen je planinama i nalazi se na raskrsnici puteva koji vode ka Jadranskoj obali, Bosni, Dalmaciji, Hercegovini i Krajini

Tura uključuje obilazak starog grada sa spektakularno stijenom koja se uzdiže iznad samog grada a iz koje izbija izvor rijeke Bistrice. Najuzbudljiviji dio ture je offroad vožnja džipovima na planinu Cincar gdje živi oko 800 divljih koja koji slobodno borave na ovim nepreglednim prostranstvima. Iskusni vodiči odlično poznaju ovu populaciju i odvešće vas do njih kako biste mogli pobliže da se upoznate sa njihovim životom i da jednostavno uživate u prisustvu ovih divnih životinja. Za one koji traže malo više avanture, tu je planinarenje na vrh planine Cincar (2006m), koje se višetruko isplati zbog nevjerovatnog pogleda na najveće evropsko kraško polje. Po završetku ture kratkom vožnjom se vraćamo do centra Livno koji obiluje sa mnoštom kafića i restorana, a to je idealna prilika da se dobro jede.

Ova tura je kreirana u sklopu projekta Nasljedđe planinskog krajolika, a u saradnji sa mladim i motivisanim vodičem Marinom Mamuzom.

We’ll restore the ecosystem of climbing areas & minimize climbers ecological impact:
🌲Planting 1000 trees
🦅 Bird protection system
♻️ Garbage collection action
🚏 Building & marking trails to combat erosion

Project description:

The project is about restoring Climbing areas in Bosnia & Herzegovina and minimizing the ecological impact of climbing

Project description:

Krajina area is home to a rich collection of different ecosystems such as canyons, valleys, hills, mountains, meadows, rocky cliffs etc.

The main focus of the project is the climbing sites which are threatened by increasing number of visits by climbers following the publishing of a local climbing guidebook. Lack of paths and access to crags has led to destruction of habitat, including the removal of trees, moving of boulders, damage to the fragile vegetation and nesting birds on the rock faces, lack of designated BBQ and open fire areas which has led to uncontrolled wildfire and the leaving of litter, much of it plastic.

Working with local climbing groups and other visitors, this project aims to educate visitors and locals about their behaviour in the wild, and to protect wildlife through the installation of signs to inform climbers to avoid nesting birds, planting 1000 trees, collecting the trash along 15km of approach path, and developing more obvious, fixed trails.

Tadaaa! Drvar – Highland heritage tour #1: / Drvar je naša prva tura u sklopu projekta Nasljedje planinskog krajolika(više o tome u nastavku teksta)

Drvar, with good sense, carries wood (Drvo) in it’s name – the thick, old-growth forest which defines the terrain, has been the main industry for over a century. Obviously locals are deeply connected to it. In Yugoslavia, the city was named “Titov (Tito’s) Drvar” in rememberance of the multiple large-scale Nazi offensives in WWII against the Partizan resistance movement. Tito and his group succesfully evaded the hunt, hiding in the two caves around the city, which in hindsight marked a big part of the later course of WWII.

This tour of Drvar’s includes a visit of Tito’s cave(s), a short hike to the beautiful hydrological Karst phenomenon Bastasica spring and Bastasi cave, a lunch at Ethno selo Dodig and a off-road drive and hike to the pristine mountain Klekovaca.

This tour was created during our Highland heritage project, together with the young, aspiring guides Lazar Mihajlović and Milutin Maksić.

Drvar, u svom imenu sadrži riječ drvo, koje je osnovni gradivni element starih i gustih šuma koje pokrivaju ove krajeve i osnovni pokretač industrije tokom posljednjeg vijeka. Život lokalnog stanivništva je duboko porotkan sa svim vrstama drveća koje uspjevaju na tim terenim. Za vrijeme Jugoslavije grad se nazivao Titov Drvar u sjećanje na nacistički desant tokom Drugog svjetskog rata. Ovdje se Tito uspio sakriti u dvije pećine koje postoje u gradu, što je dalje odredilo tok ratnih dešavanja.

Ova tura uključuje posjetu Titovoj pećini, kratku šetnju do prelijepog hidrološkog kraškog fenomena izvora Bastašice i pećine Bastasi, ručak u etno selu Dodig, off-road vožnja i pješačenje po netaknutoj prirodi planine Klekovače.

/// Last week we spent 4 days at Han Derventa (5km from Pale) to wake up this forgotten climbing area from it’s beauty sleep.

It was a strong group action with climbers from Sarajevo and Pale – first of all big thanks to everyone who showed up and helped!

The rock is excellent and completely unpolished with mostly longer routes up to 30m, mostly in the easier grades between 5 and 6b.

Most routes had a mix variety of different bolts, 95 % rotten or a bad material mix, lots of anchors missing. The rust is expectable after 20 years, with the material of that time. From the 42 existing routes we managed to rebolt:

✔️ 2 sectors with 23 routes –

🔩All routes with homemade materials were rebolted with 12mm inox bolts which have a lifespan of 20 years plus.

🔩A few routes had some good inox 10mm bolts, these we decided not to waste. We replaced the anchors and the few bad bolts with similar 10mm inox bolts.

♻️ Old bolts were cut off, inserted and closed with rock-coloured glue

Strong bolting crew: Igor Milosev, Sebastian Maier, Igor Vukic and David Lemmerer.

Because most routes were hidden under thick vegetation, dust and had a good amount of loose rocks, they needed a complete cleanup. Thanks for the great help: Ajdin Ajdas, Monroe M

anson, Aida Starcevic, Elma Okice, Emir Hanic, Dorde Raden, Dino Pecar and Alen Kontic 🌪

Aspiring climbers Nikola Rusticevic and friends completely rebuilt the goat fence and made a new gate to access the left sector 👏🏼

📷 Selma Glibanovic and Edna Covic 🏆

Hope we didn’t forget anyone who helped with ground work, cleaning up, etc. 🤗

And last but not least the routes were climbed for a final inspection 🧗‍♀️Five stars!

Big thanks also to the farm owner Vladan, who was extremely hospitable and welcoming! You can buy his excellent goat cheese 🐐🧀 and handmade soaps (brand “Alpina”), which are produced just under the rocks.

We talked to some of the other neighbours whose houses are just next to the rocks.
We confirmed that all climbers are welcome.
🔇Please just keep the noise level down cause the rocks are right next to the houses.

Enjoy! 🧗‍♂️

/// Prošle sedmice proveli smo četiri dana u Han Derventi (5 km o Pala) kako bismo probudili ovo uspavano penjalište iz dubokog sna.

Bila je to jaka radna akcija sa penjačima iz Sarajeva i sa Pale, veliko hvala svima koji su se pojavili i koji su pomogli!

Stijena je odlična, vrhunskog trenja sa uglavnom dužim smjerovima do 30m, uglavnom lakših ocjena od 5 do 6b.

Većina smjerova su imali pomješane različite vrste boltova, 95% ih je propalo ili je imalo lošu kombinaciju materijala, često bez sidrišta. Nakon 20 godina mogli smo očekivati rđu obzirom na korištene materijale. Od 42 postojeća smjera uspjeli smo da reboltamo:

✔️ 2 sektora sa 23 smjera

🔩Svi smjerovi koji su bili opremljeni materijalima iz kućne radinosti su reboltani sa 12mm inox boltovima koji imaju životni vijek duži od 20 godina

🔩Nekoliko smjerova su imali dobre 10mm inoks boltove, i za njih smo odlučili da je bolje da ostanu još neko vrijeme. Zamjenili smo sidrišta i nekoliko loših boltova sa novim 10mm inoks boltovima.

♻️ Stare boltove smo odsjekli, ukucali u stijenu, a rupe smo popunili ljepkom

Ekipu za rebolt su činili: Igor Milošev, Sebastian Maier, Igor Vukic and David Lemmerer.

Obzirom da je većina smjerova bila prekrivena gustom vegetacijom i prašinom i obzirom da je bilo i krušljivih stijena, dodatne snage su bile potrebne. Veliko hvala pomagačima: Ajdin Ajdas, Monroe Manson, Aida Starcevic, Elma Okice, Emir Hanic, Dorde Raden, Dino Pecar and Alen Kontic 🌪

Motivisani budući penjači Nikola Rusticevic i prijatelji komplet su napravili novu ogradu za koze, te su prokrčili stazicu do lijevog sektora.👏🏼

Nadamo se da nismo nikoga zaboravili 🤗

I u sklopu finalne inspekcije, probali smo smjerove 🧗‍♀️ Pet zvjezdica!

Veliko hvala i vlasniku farme Vladanu, koji je bio izuzetno gostoljubiv i prijatan. U sklopu njegove farme kojase nalazi pod stijenama možete uzeti odlični kozji sir 🐐🧀 i ručno rađene sapune (brenda “Alpina”).

Razgovarali smo sa okolnim komšijama čije se kuće nalaze tu u blizini i dobili smo povratnu informaciju da su svi penjači dobrodošli.
🔇Samo što vas molimo da dok ste na penjalištu da budete tihi jer se njihove kuće nalaze odmah tu pod stijenama.

Uživajte! 🧗‍♂️
