Valbona valley
The Valbona Valley is a national park of 8,000 hectares located in the eastern part of the Albanian Alps and one of the most beautiful natural areas in Albania. The park is located 20-30 km away from the town of Bajram Curri. Before entering the valley, only 3 km from Bajram Curri, is the source of Shoshan. This carstic spring flows into the Valbona River and forms an attractive canyon 2-3 m wide and 50 m deep. The valley is an ideal area for climbers and hikers. On both sides of the valley rise the steep slopes of the mountains which give the impression of being about four thousand meters high. The valley narrows and widens, and the landscape could leave everyone breathless. There are small groups of houses in some picturesque villages. At the end of the valley, which is also the most beautiful, lay on one side the Jezera, and on the other the mountain range Grykat e Hapta - Zhaborre.

Dragobia is the first village with houses in alpine style that lies at an altitude of 957 meters above sea level. Near Dragobia, at the spot where Çerremi stream flows into Valbona river is the famous cave of Dragobia where the national hero Bajram Curri was defeated and killed. The town was named after him.

Valbona (or Selimaj) is located 25 km from the town of Bajram Curri and is the most important inhabited center of the valley. Many traditional houses create a picturesque landscape, in harmony with the natural wonders of the valley. The road continues through the valley and the beautiful natural panorama with rich colors and with the snow covered peaks of the rugged mountains.

The last village, before Valbona river source, is Rragam, a remote village, surrounded by pristine and untouched nature. The whole village has such a rare combination of colors and beauty, that you'd think that a divine hand has created it. On one side flow the crystal clear waters of Valbona, and on the other lie the tall, green-covered mountains. Until May you can enjoy the contrast of clean white snow in the treetops, with the blue sky.

Peçmara Mountain
The constantly shadowed, dark and rugged Peçmara is 2017 m high. The lower slopes are covered with dense beech forest and provide habitat for brown bears. The old forest around the Picimali stream is very beautiful.

Xhema lake
Xhema lake is a natural pool of water near the Valbona village, on the left side of the road Dragobi-Valbona. It lies at the foot of the Peçmara mountain, near Çuku i Dunishtës, at an altitude of 770 m above sea level and has an area of about 650 m2. Xhema lake has very cold crystal clear water, rugged limestone cliffs and is surrounded by beech trees.

Kollata Mountain
The Kollata Summit with 2552 meters, is the highest peak of the Kollata mountain and lies entirely within Albanian territory. During the ascent to the summit, it is also possible to ascent the two other peaks of Kollata mountain on the border with Montenegro: Kollata e Mire (2.528 meters) and Kollata e Keqe (2.534 meters). Kollata peak is known for its magnificent view of the Valbona valley, from beginning to the end, which is impossible from any other summit.

Maja e thatë
The dry summit (Maja e Thatë) is a 2406 m high summit, located in the massif of Kollata. The lower southern and western slopes are rich in beech and pine forests, while the higher dolomite and limestone cliffs are suitable for mountaineering and climbing. Maja e Thatë has an easily recognizable peak and is a top attraction for nature and mountain lovers, hikers and mountaineers in general. Besides the aesthetic value, there are three natural monuments in its surroundings: the cave of Haxhia, the U-shaped valley of Kukaj and the red spruce wood of Valbona.

Rosi Mountain (2523 m)
Departing from Valbona centre, the road runs through the Kukaj valley and then turns around, up to the meadows below the Rosi peak. From here it is possible to continue the way choosing one of the two mountain passes up to Rosi summit.
Rosi summit, 2.523 meters high, lies on the border between Albania and Montenegro, and offers stunning views over both countries. In Albania can be seen the Jezera, its lakes and Maja e Thatë and in Montenegro the villages Plave and Guci.
The Rosi summit is divided by Maja e Thatë only from a mountain pass, and although it is made of the same rock formations, its ascent is easier, and much less dangerous, which means you can have more time to enjoy the panorama and to take photos.
In June there are beautiful meadows on this mountain. Rosi mountain is especially interesting for botanists, because many flowers such as the endemic Albanian lily (Lilium albanicum), orchids and many others can be found there.

Brias mountain
Brias mountain is the westernmost of the three peaks of the mountain range Grykët e Hapta - Zhaborre and the most imposing. It has the highest rock face visible from Valbona and from the top, the view over the Shala and Valbona valleys is memorable.
Brias is 2567 m high and grows steeply over the upper part of the Valbona valley. It consists of limestone and dolomite. The north side is completely uncovered by vegetation and together with the south wall of Arapi they are the two highest nearly vertical cliffs in the Albanian Alps. The best path to ascend this peak begins in Rragami village, about 4.5 km from Valbona and continues through a forest toward the Zhaborra saddle that lies west of the Brias Summit. Then is to be climbed the steep south side up to the summit.

Grykët e Hapta
The mountain Grykat e Hapta is part of the mountain range Grykat e Hapeta-Zhaborre, and its highest peak, "The Great Summit" (Maja e Madhe), with 2625 m is the highest of this mountain range and the third highest of all Dinaric Alps (after Jezera 2694 m and Gjeravica 2656 m).
The summit, which is named after the mountain is not the highest, but it is distinctive because of its almost vertical north side. It is 2527 m high and was renamed "Ismet Sali Bruçaj ", in honor of a teacher from Kosovo, who died in service. The best and shortest way to climb the summit begins in Valbona, follows on the northwestern side of the mountain range to the source Buni i Ziçit and leads then to the right in southern direction. The Summit of Grykat e Hapta (or Ismet Sali Bruçaj) is climbable from the south side too, but requires technical preparation.

The mountain of Çet Harusha is 2422 m high. It is located at the northwestern side of the mountain range Grykat e-Hapeta Zhaborre and rises over the Valbona valley with an altitude difference of over 1500 meters. From the top, the Valbona valley is fully visible up to Dragobi, and you have a beautiful view over the glacial trough of Kukaj.
"Gropa e Bjeshkëzës" Mountain (ca. 2000 m high) separates Çet Harusha from the other mountains of the Grykat e Hapëta-Zhaborre range. The mountain consists of Triassic dolomite and limestone. The flora is relatively rich: up to 1800 meters there are beech trees, from 1800 to 2200 m there are mountain pines and over 2200 m are pastures with many endemic flowers.

Valbona pass
Qafa e Valbonës (Valbona pass) lies at an altitude of 1812 m. Over it leads the mountain path from Theth to Valbona and here the National Park Valbona meets with Thethi National Park. The pass separates Alia summit (2471 m) lying on the northwest, from Boshi summit (2416 m) on the southeast. On both sides it is covered with beech trees and pines. An attractive natural monument near the pass is the Valbona waterfall, which is the first source of Valbona river.

Jezerca (Jecera)
Jezera summit, with 2694 meters is the highest mountain of the Dinaric Alps and with a prominence of 2.036 meters is classified as an ultra prominent peak. The summit isn't visible from Valbona Valley, but the view from the top is priceless. On the south-east you can see the magnificent Gjallica, the highest mountain in Kosovo and on the west, if the weather permits, you can see the sea.
Jezera has a large rocky peak of dolomite limestone and there is no vegetation on it. On the north, east and west of the summit, the mountain slopes down into cirques which were formed from the Ice Age glaciers. Nowadays at an altitude between 1,980 and 2,100 meters, in the northern cirque named " Buni i Jezercës", lies a 400 meter long active glacier. Two other smaller active glaciers are located in the eastern cirque " Lugu i Zajeve". In winter falls lots of snow, which at the little exposed areas melts away only in very dry years.
