Zabljak-Suvodo road

P14 is a spectacular and dangerous mountain road in Montenegro, with a length of 44,6km, between Zabljak and Suvodo, going through the Durmitor National Park.

The road starts in Zabljak, the city on the highest altitude of the Balkans. It is located at an elevation of 1,456 m above the sea level. Located in the very center of enormous mountain of Durmitor. Zabljak represents the best destination for winter tourism. In its vicinity there is the deepest canyon in Europe, the canyon of the Tara River. After 48,2km, the road ends in Suvodo, near the stunning Pivsko lake. The road climbs up the Prevoj Sedlo, a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.907m (6,256ft) above the sea level.
The route goes within the Durmitor National Park, a breathtaking national park that was formed by glaciers and is traversed by rivers and underground streams. Along the Tara river canyon, which has the deepest gorges in Europe, the dense pine forests are interspersed with clear lakes and harbour a wide range of endemic flora. Durmitor National Park comprises Mount Durmitor plateau and the valley formed by the canyon of the River Tara, incorporating three major geomorphologic features: canyons, mountains and plateaux. Because of its geographical location and range in altitude, the park is under the influence of both Mediterranean and alpine microclimates, which has resulted in an exceptional range of species.
This route is considered extremely dangerous during the winter. It is recommended that one takes the bus to the north during the cold or rainy days, as bus drivers are experienced and know the road. Due its dangerousity, this road will be bypassed in the future by a motorway which is currently being planned. The route includes several unlit tunnels, pretty narrow, impassable for 2 cars at the same time. The road is very steep, with some dangerous drops without protections. The road is called P14.
