The road running within the Moraca River Canyon is one of the most spectacular roads in the world. Located in Montenegro, the road traversing the canyon is called E65. Riddled with countless cliff-side bends and tunnels, this road is basically out to get you, but if you survive you’ll be blown away by the beauty of the landscape that surrounds you.

Moraca River Canyon separates Moračke planine range from Sinjajevina range. It’s located between Podgorica and Kolasin. This part of the canyon is called “Platije”. The highway is built along the edge of the narrow canyon.
Morača canyon covers the south-eastern part of the central region of Montenegro. This road is passable during most part of the year. It is closed only in case of abundant snowing or great rockslides. The main travel route connecting the north and the south of Montenegro runs along the Morača Canyon.
The surface of the road is asphalt. It includes several tunnels and is very dangerous. This road is passable during most part of the year. It is closed only in case of abundant snowing or great rockslides. You can enjoy in observing the beautiful contrast between steep, dark cliffs and light, green river, while round, white peaks of Bjelasica glow in the distance, at moments, this beauty becomes scary!

Crystal blue waters, magnificent sightseeing, natural beauty of the environment, sometimes it looks untouched.

My wife and I travelled through the Moraca gorge taking it in turns to sit by the window. If travelling from Budva try to sit on the left hand side of the coach for the most spectacular views. At some points you can see down to the bottom of the gorge and the river actually looks a turquoise colour even in the mists that swirl around the mountains. Coaches do stop for a photo opportunity but be very careful because the road is quite busy and the room for manoeuvre isn't much!

Our group drove the road through this canyon heading south from Kolasin to Podgorica. It is a wonderful drive with scenic vistas along the way. The Chinese are building a modern highway along parts of the road to connect Podgorica to the north quickly. If you are driving south to Podgorica, you will want to drive this road rather than the faster way along the current highway.

We drove from Skadar lake to the north- a better view around every bend! Make sure to stop at the Morača Monastery, too.
