THE PEAK OF VJELLAK

THE PEAK OF VJELLAK

The peak of Vjellak or the path number 7166 is part of the mountain ranges which create the crown of the city of Peja and is one of the most attractive peaks for walking. At the same time to reach this path you have to follow the road of the panorama that passes the serpentine road through the hills in the Black Peak. It lies in the North-west of the city with a length of 13.3km and an altitude of 2014m (6608ft) while the duration of the walk can be calculated from 3 to 4 hours. The views that this trail offers are magnificent and offer the beauty of landscapes from the Cursed Mountains and the Sharr Mountains, the mountainous parts from Albania and Montenegro to the plain lands of the Dukagjini plain.

Walking to this peak is of medium difficulty (so there is no great difficulty) and can be done by almost anyone who has a stable physical condition. Departure is from the city center of Peja at an altitude of 520m. From this point we continue towards the hills of the locality Maja e Zez which is located in the north-west of the city which does not have a large slope but the walk is on the city road. After crossing this part of the road, the path begins to pass through electric poles which lead directly to the neck of Peklena where you can take a break as from this point there are very beautiful views of the Rugova Gorge, Maja Guri Kuq and the city of Peja, Lake Radoniq and the whole plain of Dukagjini. From there begins the climb to the top of Vjellak that reaches the height of 2014m.
