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 m (1,804 ft) above the sea level and the Plain of Metohija is on average 450 m (1,476 ft) 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 2,000 m (6,562 ft). The only mountain in the north higher than 2,000 m (6,562 ft) is Kopaonik which rises to 2,017 m (6,617 ft).

The mountains make some unusual landscapes like the Rugova Canyon and the Kačanik Gorge. There are alpine and glacier lakes located in most of the mountains.
