We start from Belgrade in the morning and after 2 hour drive we reach the hiking starting point. Time required for ascend is around 3 hours including some stops for rest and photos. While hiking, we will open to you some secrets of Rtanj: about its high energy levels or its herbs used for a famous local tea. The first section of the trail goes through the mountain forest and after the altitude of about 1000 m it becomes open and steeper.
When we reach the summit of Rtanj (1560m a.s.l.), you will understand why the mountain is unique, because from the top of this pyramid you won't have any obstacle to enjoy views far in the distance. At the very peak there are remains of a chapel from the XX century, which was later blown up by treasure-diggers searching for the treasure hidden underneath it. Here we will have a mini picnic with some rakija, of course, to celebrate our successful climbing.
Then we start the way down and after about 2,5 hours more we return to the departure point. The day goes on, so we drive further to a local tavern to regain spent energy with superb local food. While eating you will listen to the tavern owner’s stories about his own history and some mysteries of Rtanj…
After an exhausting day full of impression now it’s time for returning to Belgrade.
