Overview
More
The mountain peak of Obla Glava (Round Head), named after its shape resembling a human head, seems to jealously hide another jewel of the nature of Durmitor. At an altitude of 2164m, the Icy Cavern is located. In this cavern winter never stops, and its icy "jewellery" enchants visitors with its brightness throughout the year. The most luxurious "hall" of this cave is 40m long and 20m wide. Water drips from its ceiling creating icy figures which sometimes can become very tall.

The ice cave itself is cool and the hike up is truly incredible if you're prepared- bring lots of water, warm clothes for the unpredictably cold weather, and snacks to keep you going. Wear hiking boots and prepare for a long, arduous and dangerous hike....More

Me and my bf (young people, in shape) went to this hike after reading here that it is a nice and easy walk. We planned to do this hike before the Bobotob Kuk mountain. But it wasn't easy at all! It took us 4 hours...More

Hike is more epic than actual cave but it is still amazing. Do not listen to local Shepard when he tells you that its dangerous

It was very nice trip from Zabljak. We took the path through Stary Katun which is quite dificult. Sight from the cave are great, but ice in the cave itself is melting. It's a pity but it looks that it will not last much longer.
