“Creating a fascinating and breath-taking scenery between the north of Albania and the east of Montenegro is the fifth National Park Prokletije. The name Prokletije and Albanian Bjeshkët e Namuna both mean “the accursed (mountains)”, possibly because they are perceived as insurmountable and wild.”
Prokletije national park is situated in southeastern Montenegro and lies within the “Prokletije” or Albanian Hills—a branch of the Dinaric Alps. Established in 2009, it is the country’s youngest national park. Covering an area of 16,630 hectares (41,100 acres), it has numerous peaks that exceed 2,000 meters (6,560 feet) in elevation. Its peak in Albania, Maja Jezercë at 2,694 m (8,839 ft), is the highest point of the Dinaric Alps, and the 7th highest peak in Albania. The park’s unique alpine ecosystem is home to a diversity of flora and fauna. Its many glacial lakes, some of which are typical examples of natural phenomena known as “Mountain eyes,” are bound to captivate you.
