The highway north from Nikšić meets the Piva River after passing through 40km of verdant farmland. It then tangos with the river until they both reach the border at Šćepan Polje. The river was blocked in 1975 by the building of the 220m-high hydroelectric Mratinje Dam (Brana Mratinje), flooding part of the Piva Canyon (Кањон Пива) to create the tremendously turquoise Lake Piva (Pivsko Jezero), which plummets to depths of more than 180m.
The road alongside the river is a feat of engineering in itself, clinging to the cliffs and passing through 56 small tunnels carved out of the stone. The narrow but equally spectacular route through the mountains from Žabljak joins this road near Plužine, the Piva region's unofficial capital. Heading north from here the route gets even more dramatic, with the steep walls of the canyon reflecting in the toothpaste-blue waters below.

This is a very scenic canyon. There is a lake with aquamarine water at its bottom. If in the area, it is a nice place to visit.

We arrived to Piva canyon and it was raining and extremely cold, we were not able to go for the rafting, but in the summer hopefully come back again.

A must see region while your stay on the Balkans. Montenegro is rather small country with various landscape and rich flora and fauna diversity.

Really beautiful landscape. Amacing peacefully athmosphere. Relaxing..
Roads have to take carefully if you drive a car. If you don't drive just enjoy.
