Tour Flow

#YourSerbiaHost will pick you up early in the morning (usual start time 7am) from your hotel or other place of your stay in Belgrade. After a two hour drive you’ll reach the village from which your hike will start (~600m a.s.l.).

You’ll use the southern trail which is considered for the least demanding hike (if you want a more demanding hike, please inquire). The hike to the summit is approximately 3 hours with a few stops for catching a breath, but also for catching amazing views over Timočka krajinaFrom one of the stops you’ll see clearly the pyramid shape of Rtanj’s upper part.

Last portion of the trail is quite steep. To overcome the last 500m of elevation difference will require some energy, but you’ll be rewarded with breathtaking views. The summit is really unique, since Rtanj Mountain is the highest point in kilometers. Nothing will get in your way to enjoy views far in the distance, 360 degrees, like when you are on the tip of a pyramid. The name of the highest peak of Rtanj is Šiljak (Spike) and the elevation is 1560m a.s.l.

On the very tip is a chapel, or remains of it to be exact, built in 1936 by Greta Minh. While you have a 30 minute break on the summit, you’ll hear a legend about Jewish family and hidden treasure under the chapel.

After a break and photo session you’ll get back to the starting point. It’ll take around 2,5 hours to get down to the village where we left our ride.

The day is not finished yet and we’ll take you to a local place for lunch on the way back to Belgrade.

You’ll be back to Belgrade in the early evening. Usual drop off time is around 6pm.
