Sveti Ilija Mountain
Sveti Ilija Mountain, Peljesac
Sveti Ilija is popular hikers and walkers destination. There is a old tradition of local people to climb Sthe Mountain which dates long before tourists arrived in these areas.
There are couple of well known routes to reach the summit – one from Nakovana, another two from Viganj and Kuciste, at least two from Orebic (via Bilopolje or Stankovici hamlets), one from Duba just to mention a few.
The easiest route is from Nakovana, the most demanding one is via Bilopolje or Duba. (I always use the Nakovana one )
To reach the top of the mountain (that is 961 meters high) takes at least 2 hrs although, in my opinion, to target 3 hrs one way is reasonable. All routes are marked by red-and-white trail markings and a sign.
