“Peaks of the Balkan” – is 10 years old

BBC Travel wrote about the “Peaks of the Balkans” track, which this year turns ten years old, and turned out to be the best promoter of Montenegrin cities Plav, Gusinje and Prokletije mountains in the world.

The “Peaks of the Balkans” trail is a hiking trail that passes through the mountainous regions of Montenegro, Albania, and Kosovo. The trail was designed by national and local tourist organizations and hiking clubs in cooperation with GIZ.

The highest peaks reach over 2,300 meters above sea level, the largest of which is Maja Jezerce in Albania, at 2,694 meters.

The trail passes through untouched mountain areas including old cattle tracks, lakes, rivers, waterfalls, as well as small villages tucked into the mountain ranges. It takes 10-13 days to go around the entire trail, depending on the readiness of the mountaineer.

The trail is circular so you can start your hike in any of the three countries it passes through, Plav – Montenegro, Theth – Albania, or Peć – Kosovo.
