Autumn Visit to Mountain Velez

The Mountain Velez is named after the Slavic god Veles, and it's located in the south-central part of the Herzegovina region, overlooking the city of Mostar. The plains above the city are unpredictable when it comes to weather. It's mostly sunny, but winds can ruin the whole thing. Luckly for me this past weekend as perfect autumn weather. We even had some snow on the mountain peaks. The highest peak of Velez mountain is called Botin, and it is 1969 meters (6500 feet) high. I hope you will enjoy these autumnal images from the mountains.







The valley of the city Mostar.
 


In order to get here you need to divert from the main M-17 route that goes through Mostar and drive to the lookout spot "Fortica" from which you continue driving to these plains, sometimes known as "Podvelezje", meaning "At the foot of the mountain Velez" (which you will see in a couple of images later). Roads here are few and narrow. They pierce through the stony hills and make their way over the valley all the way to the foot of even bigger mountains.
 

What does the autumn season look like in your corners of the world?

  1. Schöne Bilder hast du gemacht.
    Bei deinem anderen Bericht über Island, welcher noch nicht zu lesen ist, aber im Vorschau dabei war, sah ich das BIld von der Straße und sofort in dem Moment ohne zu lesen, wusste ich das es Island ist und schlug mein Herz rasend, da ich Island so liebe und unbedingt noch zurück will. Ich warte angespannt auf deine Berichte von Island. Liebe Grüße

    1. Ja das war ein anderer Bericht welcher Morgen gepostet werden sollte. Morgen fahre ich nach Island, und bleibe dort die nächsten 10 Tage. :) Einen Reisebericht gibt es auch danach (und deinen habe ich auch nochmal durchgelesen).

  11. It is lovely to have accessible areas and landscape like those. Regarding your last question, am sorry i haven't even experienced autumn, disappointed because i have the long time dream of walking barefoot on fallen leaves. The tropics only have 2 seasons-the dry and the wet!
