With an average elevation of 708 metres (2,323 ft) above sea level, Albania is one of the most mountainous countries in the world.[1] It has a mountainous terrain that covers more than 70% of its total territory. There are many peaks reaching heights of more than 2,000 metres (6,600 ft).

Albania can be divided into four main regions: Northern Range, Central Range, Southern Range and Western Lowlands. The most notable topographical features are the Ceraunian Mountains, Dinaric Alps, Korab Mountains, Pindus Mountains and the Skanderbeg Mountains.[2] The highest peak is Korab standing at 2,764 metres (9,068 ft) elevation above sea level on the border with the Republic of Macedonia. It is one of only two summits in Europe, which is the highest peak for more than one country.[3] It is also the 18th most prominent mountain peak in Europe.[4]
