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 Balkana, you will gradually descend towards Pliva River, which you will then follow upstream. It will give you a chance to relax and get back into rhythm. Once you reach the stunning Janjske Otoke Pliva River delta, you will start gaining altitude (e.g. climb for most of the next 18 km!), to finally reach a 1200 m high plateau of Kupres where you will be greeted with complimentary full lunch.
