Postovani Miroslave,

planiram za ovaj vikend napraviti vasu turu zrmanja vrelo - postak - plavno. Molim da mi odgovorite na par pitanja:
-Da li je moguce doci od Jelovih Greda (prvo skretanje lijevo nakon vjetroparka na Postaku) do Kaldrme? Cini mi se da postoji put u duljini 13 km.
-Da li je moguce doci od skretanja u visini Kozje Jame do Babica Jezera? Cini mi se postoji put u duljini 8 km.

Stipe

Nisam bio na Poštaku otako su napravili vjetroelektrane , no siguran sam da se na lijevom skretanju može spustiti do Kaldrme. Prilaz do Babić jezera sa gornje strane bi bilo jako dobro da postoji, pa ako nađeš nešto javi. Prema maglovitom sjećanju neki planinari/gljiv ari iz Gračaca su mi prošle godine rekli da ima pješačka staza.

Ovu turu sam vozio bez puno istraživanja lijevo/desno, no Babića jezero i upravo ovaj smjer koji si naveo ostali su za neke buduće planove tako da bi i meni bilo drago ako voziš u tom kraju da preneseš svoja iskustva kao komentar ispod ove vožnje. Kraj je veoma lijep za vožnju.

Nadam se da će vas i vrijeme poslužiti i uz dobru sreću trebali bi uživati. Eto nisam puno pomogao i hvala na razumijevanju.

Još sam nešto zaboravio. Kada sam planirao moju turu odustao sam namjerno od "proboja" prema jezeru zbog limita sa vremenom i velike visinske razlike na malom prostoru. Upravo ovo dobro pogledaj jer taj spust na Babića jezero mora da je jako strm. Pozdrav!

Puno hvala na informacijama! I mene zanima taj gornji prolaz od jezera, jer cesta Strmica - Kaldrma uz Butiznicu nije dostupna zbog granice sa BiH. Namjeravam ostaviti auto na cesti Knin - Gracac kod skretanja za Srb, te se popeti na Postak . Istrazit cu taj kraj i obavezno se javim. Pozdrav.
