Stožac hike (2,141 m) 
Saturday, October 31, 2015, 9:00 pm
During the summer the macadam/dirt track to Lake Kapetanovo is accessible, although a car with high clearance is recommended because of rocks on the road. The walk from the start of this road, if one decides to park there, to the lake across the valley (not along the road which snakes through the mountains) is about 1 hr 20 min and is a pleasant enough walk. The path from Lake Kapetanovo at the south-west side of the lake rises steeply to a rocky and stony pass, from where a goat trail up to the right leads over another pass to a mass of rock, intercut with deep cracks some of which contain snow. Following the line of the ridge on the left brings you to a grassy area where the peak of Stozac comes into sight, as does the more interesting rocky outcrop, Ilin vrh (Elijah’s peak) which is slightly lower.

There are some other peaks further on which afford a great view of Lake Manito and Lake Kapetanovo and a steep descent, although tricky with slippery grass down to Lake Manito, can be made so as not to cover the same terrain on the way back to Lake Kapetanovo. If you park by the asphalt road, count on a full day of hiking. During the summer a small café operates by Lake Kapetanovo, and there is also a spring there where you can fill up on water.
