The Ćehotina River is the northernmost river in Montenegro, originating under the Stožer Mountain and flowing along 125 kilometers until it meets the Drina River in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is a true hidden gem, not well known even among the locals living in Pljevlja, a town that receives its drinking water from the river.

However, the Ćehotina River is well known to fish experts as one of the most important natural spawning grounds for salmonid fish species. Although it has changed over the years, it remains a river teeming with brown trout and grayling, as well as the Danube salmon, the queen of the Ćehotina rapids.

In its upper course, the river flows through a canyon and is a true mountain river, while its lower course is gentle and calm. Apart from fish that attract anglers and fly fishers to the area, the river and its surrounding area is a natural habitat for many plant, mushroom, and animal species, including the endangered stone crayfish, endemic Greek stream frogs, majestic golden eagles, brown bears, and wildcats.

The upper course of the river holds many cultural monuments. In caves that surround the river, archaeologists have found the oldest traces of human habitation dating back to the Paleolithic. Traditional village architecture gives a special charm to the entire area. Constructed using natural materials found in the area, these houses now have the potential to attract visitors looking for unique experiences surrounded by incredible nature.

Recognizing the natural and cultural values of the upper part of the Ćehotina River, our partners from Eco-Team and The Nature Conservancy, in cooperation with WWF Adria and a local nongovernmental organization Da Zaživi Selo, have started the initiative to establish the Upper Ćehotina River Nature Park. The new nature park will contribute to the protection of the natural and cultural values of the area and create new opportunities for local communities, ensuring its long-term sustainability.
