Only 45 km away from the capital city of Podgoric is Mount Žijevo or Kučke mountains. These mountains with diverse mountain reliefs like valleys, steep rocky walls, 14 peaks over 2000 m, also hide two beautiful glacial lakes: Bukumirsko and Rikavačko. The highest peak is Surdup 2184 m. Due to their proximity Podgorica and good accessibility (not always in winter), these mountains are great for a one-day hiking tour from the city. The most popular tours starts from Bukumirsko Lake to the peaks of Surdup, Štitan and Pasjak, from Mokra to the Maglič peak or from Bukumirsko lake to Rikavačko lake with a possible accent on the Vila peak.
Komovi is the third mountain range in Montenegro by altitude. It is situated between the Kučke Planine and Bjelasica. It is well-known by its exceptionally beautiful peaks, more or less accessible in winter and in summer. The highest parts consist of two almost parallel ridges along the three highest peaks of this massif. It is interesting that each of these three peaks is named after one of the tribes that gravitate to these mountains. At the foot of Vasojevićki Kom is the vast plateau of Štavna, known as a starting point for almost all popular hiking tours to Komovi. Vasojevićki Kom is the easiest to reach, while the others tours are longer and more demanding.
