GJERAVICA SUMMIT, 2656M

Rightly people call it the heart of Kosovo. Gjeravica seems almost from all parts of Kosovo, like a giant mountain that stands alone and fearless, as the highest peak in Kosovo.

It is the highest peak in Kosovo, the second-highest of Accursed Mountains, and the sixth of Balkan mountains with an altitude of 2656m. It is located in the Western part of Kosovo, near its border with Albania and Montenegro. There are a lot of options to climb the peak; from Gropa Ereniku valley, Vokshi huts, from Doberdol Albania, and from BabinoPolje Montenegro.

 “We have hiked many spectacular trails both within and outside the US and the trail from Theth to Doberdol to Gjeravica was one of the most varied and beautiful. Though challenging in elevation changes the hiking was made much more pleasant by leisurely stops at the mountain cafes along the trail where beer coffee and food was available”.

Today’s hike starts with an early breakfast before we head off on our full day of walking. Soon we arrive at the big lake of Gjeravica, 2300m, where we’ll enjoy a short break. From this big lake, we have outstanding, close-up views of the nearly vertical of the Gjeravica summit.

Just two hours away from the top! Beautiful panoramas await us as we reach the summit. From the top, we’ll have spectacular views of the Albanian Alps, Prokletije, and nearly all of Kosovo’s mountains.
