This guide describes the Peaks of the Balkans Trail, a 192km circular
route through the wild and rugged borderlands of Montenegro, Albania
and Kosovo. The route can be hiked in around two weeks and the guide
also includes suggestions for excursions to bag neighbouring peaks and
visit local sites of interest. While a moderate level of fitness is assumed,
the walking itself is not difficult and makes use of existing paths and
Developed to promote sustainable local tourism and transcend political
borders, the Trail winds its way through the spectacular scenery of the
Prokletije mountains, taking in high passes and remote valleys. Despite
increasing visitor numbers, the area remains underdeveloped and unspoilt.
The guide contains all the information needed to plan a successful trip,
with comprehensive advice on travel, permits and safety, details of local
facilities, services and accommodation, and a useful glossary of words and
phrases in Montenegrin and Albanian.
