Photographer's Note

Zeleni Vir (Green Vortex, 2028 m) is one of most beautiful glacial lakes of DURMITOR national park and lake with highest altitude from all lakes of Durmitor mountain.

Lake is placed under massif of highest peaks of Durmitor - Minin Bogaz (2387 m), Lucin Vrh (2396 m), Djevojka (2440 m) and of course - Bobotov Kuk (2523 m) - highest peak of Durmitor massif. Location of Zeleni Vir Lake is good starting point for Bobotov Kuk climbing. From the lake till summit you need 1h or 1,5h.

Lake is surrounded by rocks and also with green plateaus where you can really enjoy in this beautiful alpine scenery and take a rest. Near by lake you can find water spring (under title "IZVOR" on the one big rock). This spring is placed maximum 10 meters from the lake.

After spring and during summer, this lake is full with water, after that, in autumn, lake is empty (water goes under ground). So, if you want to photo this lake, the best time is beginning of July when lake have maximum size and looks most impressive.
