List of mountains in Kosovo

List of mountains in Kosovo shows some of the vast number of mountains of Kosovo. Most of Kosovo is covered with medium-high to high mountains. Mountains of Kosovo belong to Dinarides range. The Plain of Kosovo is on average 550 meters above the sea level and the Plain of Metohija is on average 450 meters high. The Dinaric Alps in the east and the Šar Mountains in the south are home to the highest peaks in Kosovo rising well over 2000m. The only mountain in the north higher than 2000m is Kopaonik which rises to 2017m.

The mountains make some unusual landscapes like Rugova Canyon and Kačanik Gorge. While alpine and glacier lakes are located anywhere there is mounatins.
