The “Peaks of the Balkans” Trail Trans-border Hiking through Albania, Kosovo and Montenegro
The transnational “Peaks of the Balkans Trail” leads through one of the most remote and wild mountainous regions of the Western Balkans. By using shepherd paths and footways, the trail winds through high alpine mountains up to 2,300 metres above sea level and leads through wild mountain scenery, with a diversity of breathtaking landscapes, varying from green valleys to crystal-clear mountain lakes, waterfalls, rivers and remote picturesque mountain villages, in which time seems to have stopped. All in all a “hidden treasure” for nature lovers and hikers.
Until twenty years ago, the region had been almost inaccessible for visitors, which makes it an authentic cultural experience and adventure to hike across the three mountains of Albania, Kosovo and Montenegro.
