Paljenik

Paljenik

Paljenik is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 1.933m (6,341ft) above the sea level in the Vlašić mountain, in the very center of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The road to the summit is a gravel dirt track. Some people strongly advise against any offroad riding because of the land mine situation. The road to the summit is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. The road is usually impassable from October to June (weather permitting). Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 vehicle required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. Thunderstorm activity can quickly change unpaved roads to four-wheel-drive condition or make them impassable. The wind is usually quite strong at mountain areas. High winds blow here all year long. Even in summer you can confront with snowy days. Temperatures here in the winter are brutally cold. With such a high summit altitude the road can be closed anytime due to snowfalls. The zone is prone to heavy mist and can be dangerous in low visibility conditions. On the summit there’s a communication tower. Until the '90s this was military communication center with underground bunkers.
