Characteristics of the mountain Povlen
The highest point of the mountain range near Valjevo is the peak Mali Povlen, which reaches a height of 1347 meters. Other peaks are approximately the same height, while dense forests and deep river canyons reluctantly pass narrow and winding roads, so the road to Povlen is more difficult to pass.
