The White Drin Waterfall is a waterfall in the western part of Kosovo.[a] It is located in the Žljeb mountain in the Prokletije in the village of Radavc, 11 km away from the town of Peja. The waterfall is located at the mouth of the White Drin river and is 25 m (82 ft) high. Mountainous scenery surrounds the waterfall and makes it a popular tourist attraction throughout Kosovo. Other smaller waterfalls are near the area.

The waterfall, together with the cave and the spring of White Drin River is taken under legal protection in 1983, as nature monument due to its geomorphological, hydrological and touristic values with a surface of 89.94 ha (1 km2).[1]

Notes:

  1. ^ 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 recognised as an independent state by 108 out of 193 United Nations member states.
