Prokletije or the Albanian Alps are a mountain range in the Balkansthat extend from northern Albania to Kosovo and eastern Montenegro. The peak Jezercë in Albania at 2,694 m (8,839 ft), is the tallest peak of the range and the entire Dinaric Alps, and the 7th highest peak in Albania. Both the highest peak in Montenegro, Zla Kolata at 2,534 m (8,314 ft) and the highest in Kosovo, Đeravica at 2,656 m (8,714 ft), are located here. The highest peak in Albania, however, is Mount Korab, part of the Korab range, which is 2,764 m (9,068 ft) high and located in the east of the country on the border with the Republic of Macedonia (making it Macedonia's highest point in addition). The southernmost glaciers in Europe were recently discovered in the Albanian part of the range. The regional economy is based mainly on agriculture, immigrant remittances and tourism.
Lurë National Park, also known in English as Lura National Park (Albanian: Parku Kombetar i Lurës), is a park located in the municipality of Lurë in northeastern Albania. It encompasses 1,280 hectares on the eastern side of the Kunora e Lurës, the highest summit in the Lurë Mountains, which reaches a height of 2,119 m (6,952 ft) above sea level. The park is renowned for its 12 lakes and wildlife that attract visitors year round. In 2014, the Albanian government launched a rehabilitation campaign including reforestation, roadwork, and the putting of new signs. After the fall of communism, the area suffered massive deforestation from illegal logging and forest fires that severely affected ecosystems.
The Drin is the longest river in Albania with a total length of 335 km (208 mi). It has two distributaries, one going directly into the Adriatic Sea, the other one into the Bojana River.
The Drin starts at the confluence of its two headwaters, the Crni Drim (Black Drim) in the city of Struga, and the Beli Drim (White Drim) in the city of Kukës in the Trektan area of eastern Albania. Measured from there until its end at the Adriatic sea, the Drin is 160 km (99 mi) long. However, measured from the source of White Drin, its length is 335 km (208 mi), making it the longest river that runs through Albania. The Black Drin (Crn Drim in Macedonian, Drini i Zi in Albanian) flows out from the Lake Ohrid in Struga and runs through the Republic of Macedonia and Albania. The White Drin. originates from the Žljeb mountain, north of the town of Peć in the Dukagjin region of Kosovo, and runs from there through to Albania.
The Blue Eye is a water spring, natural phenomenon occurring in Delvinë District, Albania. A popular tourist attraction, the clear blue water of the river bubbles forth from a stunning, more than fifty-metre-deep pool. Divers have descended to fifty metres, but it is still unclear what the actual depth of the karst hole is. This is the initial water source of Bistricë river, long 25 km, which ends in the Ionian Sea south of Sarandë. The source stands at an altitude of 152 m and a discharge of 18400 l/s.
