Žljeb (Montenegrin and Serbian Cyrillic: Жљеб) Albanian: Zhleb) is a large mountain in north-western Kosovo[a] and Rožaje Municipality, eastern Montenegro. It is part of the Prokletije, located between the mountains of Hajla and Mokna. Nearly all the mountain is in the territory of Kosovo. The White Drin river originates in the mountain.
Zhlebit mountain also forms part of the eastern side of Rugova Canyon. It has two high and impressive peaks: the higher is called Rusulija (Albanian: Ruselia/Rusulisë) and is 2,382 m (7,815 ft) high, while the lower is called just Zhlebit, at 2,365 m (7,759 ft). Rusulija's slopes are covered with rich forests and near the summit there are meadows.
The village Radavica in Kosovo is located near the mountain.
Notes and references
|a.||^ Kosovo is the subject of a territorial dispute between the Republic of Kosovo and the Republic of Serbia. The Republic of Kosovo unilaterally declared independence on 17 February 2008, but Serbia continues to claim it as part of its own sovereign territory. The two governments began to normalise relations in 2013, as part of the Brussels Agreement. Kosovo has been recognized as an independent state by 113 out of 193 United Nations member states, 10 of which have subsequently withdrawn recognition.|
