On the 7th of July 2016 we hiked from Umoljani to Lukomir and back. Being our first mountain hike in Bosnia and Hercegovina, We were startled by the sheer beauty of the landscape and it´s pristine, unspoled nature. The route to Lukumir took us through a hilly terrain grazed by sheep and interspersed with beautifully shaped trees. After a while the village of Lukomir beacame visible and we started the gentle descent to this charming settlement, which is only inhabited during the summer season. Having had a pleasant lunch in the village, we walked up a hill to get a splendid view of the canyon. The next couple of hours saw us following a path that had the charms of a "balcony walk", with mountain cliffs on one side, and the deep canyon clad in deciduous forest on the other side. This part of the walk made a very strong impression on us. A multitude of flowers and plants in various colours as well as an amazing number of butterflies gave us the impression of being part of a fairy tale, and as we approached some houses and fields, we almost expected beeing greeted by a group of friendly Hobbits!
We can highly recommend this hike, and we can´t think of a better guide to have along than Midhat. Full of knowledge and enthousiasm about the mountains, he made shure that we enjoyed every moment of the walk.

On the 9th of July 2016 I did a tour with Midhat, that comprised ascending Maglic via the route called "The Postmans Route". From the summit we followed the Ridge towards "The Montenegro Maglic" from which the lake of Trnovac can be seen. then followed a long ascent to the lake where we had lunch, before hiking back through the forest to our car.
I can strongly recommend this day trip to anyone who loves the mountains. The scenery is breathtaking, the scramble up to the summit is fun and perfectly safe using harness and carabiners klicked to the steel wires at the steepest sections. The scenery around the lake is lovely, and bears witness to the pristine nature of this remarkably beautiful country. You could not get a better mountain guide than Miidhat. A true professional in every way, he makes you feel comfortable in every situation. Always willing to share his knowledge of the region, he manages to convey to you his love for the mountains.
Najtoplije preporuke, strucan vodic, ugodno drustvo. Zahvaljujuci gdinu Midhatu imamo najljepse sjecanje na ovaj godisnji odmor! Hvala i nadam se da se nekada opet vidimo na nasim prelijepim planinama!
With two friends from Germany and Italy Midhat took us on a tour from Umoljani to Lukomir. We had a great time and it was perfectly organized. We were picked up in the morning by car to get to Umoljani fom where we started our walk. When we arrived to the Lukomir village, our lunch (home made pita) was already waiting for us. He took great pictures of us during the tour, even in a 360° panorama format, to keep as a memory. I can only recommend him as a guide!
