Zla Kolata (Montenegrin: Зла Колата, Zla Kolata; Albanian: Kollata e Keqe) is a mountain of the Prokletije on the border of Albania and Montenegro.[2] It has an elevation of 2,534 metres (8,314 ft), making it the highest mountain in Montenegro, and the 16th highest in Albania. It is located on the border of the Plav municipality of Montenegro and the Tropojë district of Kukës County, Albania. Zla Kolata has an enormous summit and is a popular tourist destination in both countries. Standing with 2,528 metres (8,294 ft) only slightly lower is Kolata e Mirë, also located on the border. The highest peak is placed completely on Albanian soil and called Maja e Kollatës; it rises 2,552 m (8,373 ft) but is despite the dramatic views into Valbona Valley not as often visited.
