Being the highest peak of Dinaric Alps makes Maja e Jezerces (2694m) one of the most attempted summits in the area of Bjeshket e Namuna/Prokletje. Though is the highest, it’s not the most difficult summit in the area. Other summits, such as Maja e Shkurt and Langojvet seem to be much harder. Most of the people climb Maja e Jezerces from Gropat e Bukura, Lugu i Valit and from Buni i Jezerces (Lakes). Still haven’t hear of people climbing it from Lugu i Zajave (Kukaj village side). Our route is not very difficult but I rate it difficult because it is long and have some exposed parts on hard snow where crampons and ice axe is needed.
