Prokletije or the Albanian Alps (Template:Lang-sq; Template:Lang-sr, Template:IPA-sh) are a mountain range in the Balkans that extend from northern Albania to Kosovo and eastern Montenegro. Their highest point, Jezercë in Albania at Template:Convert, is the tallest peak in the entire Dinaric Alps.

Both the highest peak in Montenegro, Zla Kolata at Template:Convert and the highest in Kosovo, Đeravica at Template:Convert, are located here. The highest peak in Albania, however, is Mount Korab, which is Template:Convert high and is located in the east of the country on the border with Macedonia.

The southernmost glaciers in Europe were recently discovered in the Albanian part of the range. The regional economy is based mainly on agriculture, immigrant remittances and tourism.
