Mokra Gora (Albanian: Malet e Mokrës or Mokragorë; pronounced [môkraː ɡǒra]; Serbian Cyrillic: Мокра гора, meaning Wet Mountain) is a mountain on the border between Kosovo[a] and Montenegro. It is part of the Prokletije mountain range. It has two peaks higher than 2,000 m (6,562 ft). The highest is Pogled at 2,156 m (7,073 ft), and the other is Beleg at 2,102 m (6,896 ft). The Beleg peak is shared between Kosovo and Montenegro, while Pogled is on the tripoint. The peak Berim is also part of this mountain.[2] In Kosovo, the town of Istok lies just south of the mountain on the Metohija plain, which borders the mountain to the south.

Notes and references[edit]

Notes:

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 2013 Brussels Agreement. Kosovo has been recognized as an independent state by 112 out of 193 United Nations member states, while 12 states have recognized Kosovo only to later withdraw their recognition.
