This tour discovers one of the most hidden and pristine mountain ranges in Europe. Settled by Albanian and Slavic people, remote and isolated by communism (especially in Albania), this multicultural area presents the real hospitality and traditional way of living. Montenegrin name for this range is “Prokletije” while Albanians call it “Bjesket e Namuna”, having the same meaning in both languages.
Before entering in the Accursed Mountains, we will climb Kom Vasojevica and Visitor summits with aim to get the first impression of Accursed mountains range from distance! At the end of the tour, we will get down to Skadar Lake having a chance to see this magic range while swimming in warm waters, just after the impressive trekking adventure is finished.
Summits, crystal mountainous lakes, rivers, waterfalls, forests and green pastures. Shepherds timeless villages with local people highly interested in still rare visitors.
As this area started with hiking tourism just couple of years ago, the cross-border permissions for hiking groups are available since 2013. As “ZalaZ” team took part in the process of opening this area to the hiking society, we are proud to present our first cross-border tour between Montenegro and Albania!
