Only 3km away from the centre of Zabljak, Malo (Small) and Veliko (Big) Lakes merge into Crno (Black) Lake. This lake is specific for its dark blue shade of water, which often seems black, and the effect is created by the Lake's depth and the dense Durmitor pine forest surrounding it.

You can take a very nice walk around the lake, which takes approximately 1h (3.6km). In the summer, possibility to swim, the water is quite warm, in à very nice setting. Worth a visit !

If you are visiting Durmitor, and intend to do some hiking, you will see the Black Lake. It is a beautiful lake with a nice backdrop, but the real beauty will appear once you start ascending the mountains behind the lake.

I was there yesterday and spent 2 hours at this gorgeous piece of art crafted by the nature. Swimming in it is refreshing and rejuvenating. You can't miss the black lake when you visit Montenegro.

We've been twice to the Black lake on our way to different hikes in the Durmitor national parks. We loved to start and finish our hike at the lake, drinking coffee or beer (though the cappuccino is bad in the coffee house near the lake)....More

It takes quite some time to walk a full circumference of the lake. The views to be enjoyed are really spectacular (if someone likes mountains). Additional plus - only few tourists decide to take the tour, so it can be enjoyed in tranquility.

Best in the early morning with no wind in order to get spectacular photos of the mountains reflecting on the lake. The restaurant had not yet opened by the time we departed at noon.
