Canyon Nevidio

Nevidio Canyon is a part of the Mala Komarnica river, which rises at the foot of the southern slopes of Durmitor, more precisely in Dobro Do. Plunging, it passes between the peaks of Boljski gred (2091 m.a.s.l.) and Lojanik (2091 m.a.s.l.) to reappear in a gentle valley as a permanent river. The area around the entrance is one of the most beautiful areas in the Durmitor area. The beauty of this region is the village of Pošćenje with two glacial lakes, the periodic Skakavica waterfall, which scatters the water of Grabovica, which flows into Komarnica, from a seventy-meter high rock.

At the end of the valley, at an altitude of 935 m, the Nevidio canyon begins, or Nevidjbog, as the residents of this area call it. It rightly bears this name because the river gets lost in a strange carved entrance and becomes invisible to the human eye.

Tucked away and hidden in inaccessible terrain, Nevidio Canyon attracted attention and curiosity, but there was little organized effort to get to know and explore it. The first serious but unsuccessful attempts were made in 1957 and 1964. There were endless strange and fantastic stories about Europe’s last unconquered canyon. Until August 1965, when the members of P.S.D. “Javorak” from Nikšić, although with meager equipment, passed through the canyon and for the first time introduced the world to the long-hidden, wild and astonishing beauty.

Today, the Nevidio canyon finds its place in prospectuses as a unique tourist attraction. The unrepeatable beauty of the straits, cascades and sparkling beeches guarded by the Nevidio canyon is reason enough to visit this incredible jewel of Montenegro. However, although it does not require special physical fitness, going through the canyon is not recommended without a guide and adequate equipment.

The first contact with Nevidia is overshadowed by an indescribable beauty, unusual and strange to which a person is not used to. Most of the canyon is in eternal shadow. Because of the vertical rocks, the sun’s rays cannot reach the bottom. The steep and inaccessible rocks have harsh conditions for vegetation, so that the canyon can be said to be a jewel of harsh nature.

Although most of the published brochures consider the fact that the length of the canyon is 3,000 meters, the actual length of the canyon is 1,700 m. The height difference is 125m.
