Hike & Yoga in Gjeravica

July 6 @ 7:00 am - July 7 @ 6:00 pm

Hike and Yoga in Gjeravica
“The mountains are calling and we must go.”
It’s Gjeravica this time. The highest peak (2.656 m) in Kosovo, through Dinaric Alps, part of the Accursed Mountains. Starting the hike from the cutest town Junik, breathing the cleanest air and enjoying the beautiful village, lake and mountains view, continuing to walk towards the summit, we will try to let everything go and just be present in the moment, happy that we left the busy city life for a change.

TOUR PROGRAM

This two days adventure starts on Saturday, in Prishtina. We meet at Newborn at 07:00 AM in the morning, and drive to Gjakova with minibus. Afterwards, we drive 30 minutes east to the village of Junik to begin our hike into the Dinaric Alps and to the glacial lake beneath Gjeravica Peak, the highest point in Kosovo at 2,656 meters.
After arrival at the lake, we will set up with tents and sleeping bags. Time to enjoy the nature, socializing, or swim in the lake.
Before the sunset, we will practice an hour of yoga as salmon and orange colors overtake the sky and peace overtakes our guests.
On Sunday morning, our hike starts from the lake to the summit. The path we will take, which is also part of the new trans-Balkan Via Dinarica Trail (from Slovenia to Macedonia).
When we reach the top of the majestic summit we will be able to look over Albania, Montenegro, and Kosovo. At the mountaintop we will take time for a yoga session along with taking pictures and eating snacks.
We will descend and hike back to Junik, where we can enjoy a traditional lunch of flija (savory pastry filled with cream) and then transfer back to Prishtina.
