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 be following the clear waters of Pliva River upstream, almost all the way to its spring. This will give you a chance to relax and get back into rhythm. Once you reach the locality of Janjske Otoke River delta, you will start gaining altitude (e.g. climb!) for the best part of the next 18 km, to finally reach a 1200 m high plateau of Kupres, which hosts CP3.
