Hiking the 190km Peaks of the Balkans through the mountains of Montenegro, Kosovo and Albania
Peaks of the Balkans Trail photography by Rudolf Abraham. The Peaks of the Balkans is a 190km long-distance hiking route through the Prokletije Mountains (also known as The Accursed Mountains) which form the remote, mountainous borderlands of Montenegro, Albania and Kosovo. It was developed as a means of encouraging sustainable local tourism in this region, and to help create a sustainable income for the local population there. I began visiting the Prokletije mountains in 2004, and wrote the first English-language guidebook to the Peaks of the Balkans Trail in 2017.
