The trail is the final stage of the Highland Herzegovinian transversal (KT 21). The starting point for climbing on Velika Vlajna is from Bogodol 840 m a.s.l, 20 km west of Mostar, on the local asphalt road Cim-Goranci-Bogodol near the Bogodol Mountain hut.

From the top is a magnificent view of the Drežanka river canyon, a depth of 1,500 m.
