Prokletije National Park
Located on the border between Montenegro and Albania, Prokletije National Park sports the rugged beauty of jagged mountain peaks, steep gorges, tree-lined river valleys and placid glacial lakes. This is the perfect spot for taking hikes and lingering over the incredible scenery.
The countryside here has plenty of wildlife to spot, while the lakes are also filled with creatures including fish, amphibians and reptiles. One of the most popular sites in the park is Ali Pasha Springs – home to a series of mini-springs, which are safe to drink from. The water in the lakes is exceptionally pure and is a source of drinking water for locals.
Lake Plav is one of the most beautiful lakes in the region and is popular for swimming in the summer. If you have the time, the charming town of Plav is also worth visiting for its beautiful church, mosque and old library buildings. If you enjoy hiking it’s also definitely worth making the trip to see Grlja Waterfall, which pours into the Skakaivca River nearby.
