Prutas is one of the peaks of Durmitor with perhaps the most beautiful view of Planinica, Bezimeni vrh, Bobotov kuk, Djevojka, Sarene pasove, Sedlena greda, a large part of Piva, villages Nedajno and Mala Crna Gora, Susica canyon.
This peak is placed in the western part of southern central Durmitor. On the north is Gruda (2302 m), from which it is separated by Ilin Do (2230 m) pass. Gruda and Prutas in way make southern end of the crest that makes western side of Susica river canyon.
Over the Ilin Do pass western approach from Todorov Do leads. On the northeast is amazing Skrka valley with its two extraordinary lakes – Veliko and Malo Skrcko Jezero (Big & Small Skrka Lake).
In front of Prutas summit are placed main and highest crest of Durmitor called “Soa Nebeska” which means “Altar of the Sky”. This 2 kilometres long and about 800 m high rocky wall contain three peaks – Bezimeni Vrh (2487 m), Bobotov Kuk (2523 m) and Djevojka/Soa (2440 m).
The trail starts from Sarban in Dobri dol, 1696 m.a.s.l., in about 1 hour and 15 minutes you reach the Skrcko zdrijelo pass 2114 meters above sea level, where the path continues upwards to the left while the path to Skrcka lakes descends.
We move along a grassy slope and the path is quite safe except for two shorter exposed parts, where you need to hold on with your hands. The top is spacious, grassy with a fantastic view.
