Republic of Macedonia Off The Beaten Path: 40 reviews and 101 photos
Mount Korab (2764 m) is the highest peak of Macedonia, located in the Mavrovo National Park in the northwest of Macedonia.
Since Mount Korab is on the border with Albania, it is not allowed to climb this mountain without authorization from the Macedonian government, which allegedly is hard to get.
However, once a year the Mountain Club Korab arranges the annual climb during the weekend closest to Independence Day, September 8. It is a big event that attracts hundreds of mountaineers, escorted by the border police.
For contact, see the website of the Korab Mountain Club, which is also available in English.
