A Scenic Drive [Part 2/2]: In the Valley and Down the Hills

We continue our road trip through the mountains of Bosnia and Herzegovina. In the second part I will show you mountain slopes of Northern Herzegovina. If you were to continue driving down this road, you would reach the seaside in about two hours.

Enjoy the scenic views and I wish everyone a great weekend ahead!

This is a two-part post:
Part One: The Drive up the Mountains
Part Two: In the Valley and Down the Hills

The mountain road here is right on the edge of the cliffs.



In the valley the sun peaked out of the stormy clouds.



One of the peaks of mountain Ivan in the distance.


The road winds down the valley...


..until eventually reaching the mountain peaks, from where the journey begins downhill.




The road north to Sarajevo.


But I continue on home, south to Mostar.


Thank you all for visiting.

Have the fall colors arrived in your regions?
As you can see in the images above, we are still waiting for them.

  8. I like the way the road is carving its way through the mountain in the first photo, or that is what it looks like. Majestic Vistas of our country are just spectacular.

  10. Thank you for taking us on this wonderful drive! I think I mentioned to you once that I met a man who had been from the then-named Yugoslavia, and he told me that it was diverse and incredibly beautiful in his country. I can believe him, looking at your gorgeous photos!

  19. Fall colours are just starting to creep in where I live. The picture of the winding road is good, wondering if there was a huge drop on the right hand side. It's the sort of road hubby would cringe over. Not me though, I liked driving on that kind of road.

  21. What a totally beautiful area. Those roads would be scary to travel on if there weren't rails and warnings.

  22. Beautiful mountains, hills and skies, Mersad! Your photos made me feel as if driving the winding road myself.
