Recently, a very popular trail that goes in three countries has been very required and hiked by many trekkers around the world. It is called the “Peaks of the Balkans” trail, a 192km cross-border trekking that mostly leads in a very remote and wild borderland area of Albania, Kosovo, and Montenegro.
By using shepherd paths and footways, the trail winds through high alpine mountains up to 2300m above sea level. You’ll leave civilization far behind as you trek for instance, to Cerem and Doberdol, the most remote areas in Albania.
Whether you are thinking to visit Albania, Kosovo, or Montenegro, you should always consider visiting the highlights of these countries while trekking in the mountains.
