Although she is a young mountaineer, Maja has crossed hundreds of miles of trails in B&H and the region for a year. She visited more than 20 most famous peaks in the country.

“Mountains Maglic, Zelengora and Prenj have left the greatest impression on me. Zelena glava on Prenj has particularly impressed me. I always enjoy coming back there and it manages to amaze me every time,” said the mountaineer Maja.

The love for the mountain was not accidental for Maja. Her grandfather Dzemal Repak was a known B&H mountaineer. He was one of the founders of the Mountain Rescue Service in Mostar back in the ‘70s.
