Kupres is a town in Dinaric Alps at 1180 m above sea-level, surrounded by mountain peaks, which makes it a famous ski resort but it also boasts active tourism like motocross, paragliding, horse-riding, mountain biking and off-road driving. It is also known for a large natural lake and medieval tombstones.

After leaving Jajce, you will once again follow Vrbas River upstream which will give you a chance to relax and get into rhythm but a nasty kick with a ramp up to 14% will eventually wake you up and get you set for a 16 km climb @ 4.5% up to 1370 m above sea level. Luckily, you reach CP3 after a quick and short descent on the other side of the mountain to be greeted with complimentary full lunch and commercially available lodging options, should you want to take a rest here.
