National Park Shar Mountin, Rudoka Peak and Crno Ezero (THE BLACK LAKE)

This peak, by the name of Rudoka, is a mysterious and gorgeous mountain that can be found in the Shar mountains.

However, this mountain isn’t like any other. The peak has a wonderful view that allows you to see a large distance around Macedonia and the mountains nearby.

The peak Rudoka has a glamorous hiking trail that goes to the point where you can visit the Black Lake. The lake is eleven meters deep, which makes it look dark and mysterious. The Black Lake is also the second-deepest lake in National Park Shar Mountain, but it’s definitely first when it comes to being a comparison to the midnight sky in the Shar Mountains.
But of course, not all beautiful mountains have an easy way to get to them.
To reach the lake without the hiking trail requires a 4×4 vehicle, which will go through the dirthy road “Shara Waters.” This is also included in the offer.

Rudoka is always in the Shar Mountains, waiting to be explored by new visitors, and has a welcoming glance when you look at the peak.
