Sušičko jezero

The road to Sušičko Jezero is not for the sissies

Lake Sušica is a mountain lake at an elevation of 1.163m (3,815ft) above the sea level, located within the Durmitor National Park, in the northwestern part of Montenegro.

Located in the Sušica Valley, the road to the lake was recently paved. It’s a forest road with numerous hairpin turns. Starting from the small village of Nedajno, the drive is 6.5 km (4.03 mile) long. The route is dangerous. Not recommended to newbies. Along the way you’ll have to deal with some dangerous dropoffs.

The road has some narrow parts, impassable for 2 medium cars, but offers magnificent views. Not recommended if you don't know how to reverse.  If you meet a car coming in the opposite direction it’ll be quite an experience to find a place to pass each other. The road gets quite crowded in summers. Be careful: this road is not for the sissies. One mistake can have consequences.

The road runs through the Sušica Canyon. The area is beautiful, picturesque, like a postcard. In the summer time, especially in late summer, the water of Sušičko lake disapears and you can see just a green grassy meadow.  Sušičko Lake is 350-450 m long, and its maximum width is 200 m. The Lake is 4-5 m deep.
