One Day Hike to the Ljuboten Peak

Location

Shar Planina belongs to the group of young mountain ranges in Macedonia and characterizes with a typical mountain climate of -1,5 °C (average temperature in winter) and 17 °C (average temperature in summer). It is situated in the northwest part of the Republic of Macedonia, and it extends to North-east, West and South-west in 80 km length with an area of 1600 km2. It originates from the Lepenec river (the peak of Ljuboten, 2499 meters above sea-level) and ends at the Vrutok village where the springs of the Vardar river are (the peak of Morava, 2147 meters above sea-level). The average height of this mountain range is 2200 meters above sea level, taking into consideration that there are more than 20 peaks that are higher than 2000 meters above sea level. Sar Mountain disposes of more than 200 endemic species of plants, over 44 species of animals, such as the lynx and the wild goat, eagles, hawks, and the well-known shepherd’s dog called Sar Planinec (Shar Planina dog). Besides the opulent flora and fauna, there are also 25 perennial mountain lakes, over 200 sources of drinking water and 25 rivers.
