Courage is required to drive to Rikavacko Lake
Rikavacko Jezero is a high mountain lake at an elevation of 1.337m (4,386ft) above the sea level, located in the Podgorica municipality of Montenegro, just next to the Albanian border.
Nestled in the mountain range Kuči, the road to the lake is very challenging. It’s called TT4. It’s 15.8 km (9.81 miles) long, starting from Verusa. The first part of the drive is paved and narrow. But asphalt road ends at the village of Wet. Beyond this point the road is very winsing and hairpinned and drivable only by 4x4 vehicles.
The area is remote, with no mobile signal. The lake is located on the border between Montenegro and Albania. It is a glacial lake with a picturesque landscape, surrounded on both sides by mountains on whose slopes are clearly visible traces of glacier run-off from which water falls and fills the lake. The surface of this lake is 117.755 m2, with a maximum depth of 14 meters. Its maximum length is 520 meters and width of 325 meters.
