List of mountains in Albania

Maja e Thatë 2406 m

Albania contains many mountains, some reaching heights of more than 2,000 m above sea level. The highest mountain in Albania is Mount Korab on the border with the Republic of Macedonia. Mount Korab reaches a height of 2,764m. New GPS readings say that Mount Korab could be 2,864 m high, 100 m higher. The highest mountains are located in Mount Korab, the Prokletije (also Albanian Alps, Albanian: Bjeshkët e Namuna), the Šar Mountains () on the border with Kosovo (e.g. Koritnik and Pashtrik), near Lake Ohrid and Lake Prespa and in the south where many ranges and mountains reach beyond 2,500m. Near the coast it is mainly hilly. The mountains create features such as the Canyon of Osum river and valleys like Valbona in the Prokletije. The mountains are used for a number of things like skiing and climbing.

Two large European mountain ranges dominate Albania, the Dinaric Alps and the Pindus mountains.

The mountains have glacial and alpine lakes. An example is the lakes on the mountain of Lura, the Albanian Government has declared Lura a National Park.
