This contoured, GPS compatible map at 1:60,000 covers a 192-km long cross-border hiking circuit in the mountains of Albania, Kosovo and Montenegro. The reverse provides detailed notes and route-profiles. The 10-day circuit which starts in Thethi in Albania, crosses the wildest and the most untouched mountain range in the Balkans, the Prokletije or the Albanian Alps.
The map provides a very vivid picture of the topography with contours at 50m intervals, enhanced by relief shading and colouring for woodlands. Boundaries of national parks and other protected areas are clearly marked. An overprint prominently highlights the course of the Peak of the Balkans long-distance hiking trail, indicating recommended overnight stops. Also marked are other waymarked routes, and symbols indicate accommodation, tourist information centres, viewpoints, climbing areas, etc. The map has both a 1-km UTM grid and latitude and longitude lines at 5' intervals. Map legend includes English and German alongside with local languages.
On the reverse are detailed stage-by-stage descriptions of the route, accompanied by route profiles and GPS waypoints for important locations including turnings or crossroads and accommodation facilities. All text is in English only.
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.
