Golija Mountain is the highest mountain in southwestern Serbia, one of the most beautiful and heavily forested mountains in our country. Its highest peak (Jankov kamen – 1833 meters) gives adorable view of the Pešter plateau. It gives fantastic, still unexplored possibilities for tourism and recreation. Its slopes, abundant in snow in winter, are ideal for ski sports, while in summer they turn into the lovely pastures and sunny slopes. Golija is the first and the only Biosphere reserve in our country. The Government of the Republic of Serbia passed a regulation in 2001 which put the area of Golija Mountain under protection of UNESCO pronouncing it as the Nature Park and placing it in the first category of protection as a natural property of exceptional importance. There is the tourist centre Odvraćenica on Golija, with a hotel and ski-path at the altitude of 1744 meters. The construction of some building aimed for winter tourism is under construction. Once the proceeding construction is finished, Golija will have 5 ski lifts and 8 ski paths.

Giljeva is a mountainous area which in south separates the Pešter plateau and high Montenegrin Mountains. It is 20 kilometers far from Sjenica, it can be reached via Budjeva and Karajukića bunari roads. This unusual mountain is the Heaven for cattlemen of Pešter, filled with country-houses, cotes, flocks of sheep and shepherds from numerous villages of Pešter. Its specific karstic landscape is more reminiscent of some other planet than of some other mountain. Giljeva represents the secret and mysterious, still insufficiently explored area even by the residents of the Pešter plateau.
