"Bitovnja" Mountain Association was founded in 1937 as a nongovernmental and nonpolitical organization with the primary aim of promoting mountain climbing, humanism, nature, protection of the environment, and promotion of the natural, cultural and historical attractions.

During the last decades the Association acquired a great reputation amongst those who love mountains and nature. Between the two world wars until 1992, the Association created many excellent mountaineers who have been awarded many times with the highest mountain prizes and medals.  Thanks to them, Kreševo and its residents have become known all over Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Slovenia as good climbers and excellent hosts.

Due to the outbreak of war in Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1992 the Association's activities were temporarily interrupted and reactivated at the end of 1995.

Today the Association has about 200 members mostly youth and children. Since the Association's reactivation, a mountain house in Zečevo was built and at the end of 2004 a mountain lodge on Lopata was restored. This lodge on Lopata was built between 1959 and 1963, and at that time it used to be one of the biggest, most comfortable, and also up until the war the most visited in BiH. It is situated at an altitude of 1324 meters and built of wood and stone. There are 60 rooms and 2 apartments available.

The association “Bitovnja” annually organizes a mountain tour named “Mountain trail Bitovnja – Pogorelica – Vranica”, established in 1964. This 71 kilometers long route, thanks to its natural beauty and  rich cultural and historical heritage, is among  the most beautiful in  BiH. This is confirmed by an interest perpetuated every year by hikers from BiH and neighboring countries.

In 1991 the Association began organizing the Day of BiH mountaineers. In 2002 on Lopata, more than 1000 mountaineers were involved - it was the 110th anniversary of organized mountaineering in BiH.

On the Inač Mountain every year in the second half of January the anniversary of the death of Dzemal Bijedić takes place. He was a former President of the Federal Executive Council of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (SFRY). Bijedić, his wife and his associates died in 1977 in a plane crash.
