A hike from Valbona Valley NP, through Prokletije, Thethi NP to Rikavačko Jezero in Montenegro.

This is what I hiked, so it includes all the wrong turns I took AND the struggle to find a decent path to cross the border from Vermosh to Montenegro. On the other hand, it also shows the route from Vermosh to Rikavačko jezero, which I strongly recommand to take!
