Everything you need to know to plan and successfully execute a Peaks of the Balkans trek in the mountains of Albania, Kosovo and Montenegro. This Beginner's Guide includes topics such as which trek and trails to choose, recommended alternative routes, how to find a trekking agency, whether to have a guide or trek independently, when to go, what to pack, how to get there, and much, much more.
We found research for this trek a bit difficult, and clear information lacking. Having fielded numerous questions about trekking the Peaks of the Balkans and more generally the region referred to as the Accursed Mountains, we decided to capture in one place all the information we ourselves could have used in our planning and research.
We hope you enjoy and find useful this Peaks of the Balkans Beginner's Guide!
