This is another part of my 2017 summer backpacking trip, during which I visited lots of mountain ranges across the Balkans and Eastern Europe.
Here I spent four days exploring the Shar Planina- a mountain range located along the borders of Kosovo, Serbia, Albania and The Republic Of Macedonia.
My impromptu visit began in the town of Tetovo. I climbed the peaks of Titov Vrv and Ljuboten before continuing to the beautiful Prizren in Kosovo.
Despite being the scene of conflict during the 2001 insurgency in the Republic of Macedonia, and also featuring some rather rundown ski resorts, The Šar Mountains are stunning. I met lots of very friendly local people during my trip and the views were stunning!
