The transnational “Peaks of the Balkans Trail” leads through one of the most remote and wild mountainous regions of the Western Balkans. By using shepherd paths and footways, the trail winds through high alpine mountains up to 2,300 metres above sea level and leads through wild mountain scenery, with a diversity of breathtaking landscapes, varying from green valleys to crystal-clear mountain lakes, waterfalls, rivers and remote picturesque mountain villages, in which time seems to have stopped. All in all a “hidden treasure” for nature lovers and hikers.
Until twenty years ago, the region had been almost inaccessible for visitors, which makes it an authentic cultural experience and adventure to hike across the three mountains of Albania, Kosovo and Montenegro.
On 7th of May 2014, the DAV Summit Club held a promotional evening at the Alpine Museum in Munich to give an overview of the “Peaks of the Balkans” hiking trail and its region. Klaus Wanger (DAV SC) presented pictures and facts about the trail.
Invitations have been sent out to over 15,000 DAV Summit Club clients from Southern Germany. Because of the very limited space at the Alpine Museum, only 100 registrations were accepted. But since demand has been very high, a fur¬ther evening will be arranged in coopera¬tion with Globetrotter, one of the most successful outdoor clothing retailers in Europe.
