Maja Jezerce 2694m - Photo: SummitPost
Starting on Friday 19th June, I'll be attempting to hike from Tjentište in Bosnia & Herzegovina to Valbona in Albania along the highpoints of the Dinaric Alps.  A distance of around 280km (plus a few extras).

The route will link up the massifs of Maglić / Bioč, Durmitor, SinjajevinaBjelasica, Komovi, and finally the Prokletije or "Accursed" Mountains on the border with Albania.

Hopefully I'll manage to climb all the main peaks along the way, the highest being Maja Jezerce 2694m, which is the highest peak in the entire Dinaric Alps.

If I have time, I'll also attempt an out and back from Plav to Đeravica 2656m the highest peak in Kosovo, and Zla Kolata 2534m, the highest peak in Montenegro.

After reaching Valbona, I hope to catch the amazing-looking Komani Lake Ferry to reach Tirana for the flight back home.
