This mountain is only a short drive away from Mostar city, which makes it ideal for a little weekend (or day) getaway. But I'm getting ahead of myself. I need to tell you a bit about this place first. Basically, Rujiste is an area located between mountains Prenj and Veles (proper spelling Veleš, pronounciation Velesh).

The peaks of mountain Prenj are significantly higher, over two thousands meters. In fact, the high peaks of Prenj are why this mountain is sometimes nicknamed the Herzegovian Himalay…
