Story by Fil from , Croatia, submitted on 03/05/2016
I did it 2x last August. AWSOME! Nature in its best!

If you do it in summer, I would suggest to do it in the afternoon, because very hard middle part is on eastern slopes of mountain so it will be in shade. If you start in morning, you will be hard hit by sun all the way. Actually, I suggest to start 4hrs before sunset. You need 2-3 hours for climbing and 1hr for descent.

Anway don''t forget to take water with you. There is a restaurant at 9km where you can buy water. Tap water is NOT drinkable!

There is info-center at 15km and another restaurant at 19km but their opening hours are not really sure. You might kiss door closed.

Afterall, I strongly recommend this climb!

I agree with Bogdan and ninebjudj. From Podgora city (sea level) this climb is 30 km long, summit is at 1762 m. I did it in May 2008. From Makarska in 10 km you can reach the top maybe if you go direct mountain hike.

It''s nice climb, but the distance is about 30 km, so it''s not that hard. I did it on MTB 4 years ago in August, but it''s better to avoid this climb during summer due to elevated temperatures. In case you do it, take a lot of water.
