Total Croatia News

There are several reasons why this beautiful tradition is taking place in Kurtegić Dolac. One of them, and maybe the most important one is, that this area of Kamešnica is certainly one of the most beautiful corners of this otherwise beautiful and attractive mountain.

The Mountaineering association “Dinaridi” from Split, spends the feast of Epiphany traditionally at the Kamešnica mountain in Kurtegić Dolac, on their mountain shelter “Eduvard – Edo Retelj” at 1450 meters above sea level, informs Dalmacija News on January 7, 2016.

This year was no different with the presence of over 150 people from several mountaineering associations and societies. Along with the hosts, there were mountaineers from PD “Promina” from Drniš, PD “Svilaja” from Sinj, HPD “Mosor” from Split, PD “Jelinak” from Trilj, PD “Kamešnica” from Otok, HPK “Sv. Mihovil” from Šibenik, PD “Perun” from Podstrana, Pd “Pozjate” from Brela, HPD “Sv. Ilija” from Baška Voda, HPD “Kozjak” from Kaštel Sućurac, HPD “Ante Bedalov” from Kaštel Kambelovac, HPD “Prpa” from Baške Oštarije, mountaineering friends from the neighbouring Bosnia and Herzegovina PD “Cincar” from livno, PD “Kamešnica” from Livno, and the Herzegovinian mountain rescue service.. .

Although the weather was in line with the season – beautiful winter scenery, moving on the fresh mountain air with the physical effort that has been invested, socializing in Kurtegić Dolac was filled with new strength, happiness and satisfaction. Being a mountaineer means to visit and to get to know the beauties of the Earth, enjoy the beautiful mountain scenery, acquire new acquaintances and friendships, and exactly this is what the 150 mountaineers experienced. Many hiking adventures from last year were told and some agreements and plans for hiking in this starting year have been made.

Of course, there was plenty of local delicacies, that go with this time of a year, and in the end, everything was spiced up with songs and a promise of a reunion same time, same place, next year.
