Veliki krš (1148 meters above the sea level) is a magnificent mountain ridge which is located around 10km from town Bor. As one of the branches of Southern Carpathians, it is a part of Carpathian region mountain group in Eastern Serbia. According to the time of its origination, Veliki krš is one of the oldest mountains in Serbia.
Veliki krš is a narrow teeth shaped limestone mountain range system, which spreads in NW SE direction (north west and south east). Milder slopes are on the south west side and more steeper almost vertical slopes on the south east side. Total length of the mountain is around 13 km.
Trekking tour along the whole mountain ridge of Veliki krš is a great challenge due to very rocky and rough terrain, constant ascends and descends and rocky scenery all together. It is recommended that only mountaineers with experience and stamina go on this tour along the whole ridge.
Second trek option is crossing half a ridge of Veliki krš. Descend off the ridge in this case is very steep and you have to cross the rocky escarpment as well. This tour as well is recommended only for the mountaineers with certain experience and stamina.
The easiest hiking tour is ascend along the ridge to the nearest peak and return to the starting point on the same path.
In all three cases the ascend is very steep, starting from the bend Cepe, it takes about an hour to reach the ridge.
Going along the whole ridge is a great challenge and certainly one of the most beautiful, exciting and hardest trek tours in Serbia.
