Albania attracts more and more tourists
The Albanian Alps are located in northern Albania north of the Drin River and occupy about 8% of the country's territory. Their average altitude is 1 500 meters. Most Albanian peaks above 2,000 meters are located in this area, including the Ezeri Peak (2694,<> m), which is the highest peak in the Albanian Alps and the second in Albania.
The stunning beauty of the Alps is reflected in the clear waters of the rivers Shala, Valbona, Tsurai, Tsemy, Moraca and the glacial lakes Peya, Jezertsa, Dobardol, Sulbica and others. The symbiosis between tranquility and adrenaline offers unforgettable moments for anyone who has chosen to visit the Albanian Alps.
