Name[edit] The Maja Jezercë
Maja Jezercë
is the Albanian name, which is derived from the Slavic word, probably more specifically from Serbo-Croatian
Serbo-Croatian
jezero ("lake"), and Albanian word maja ("top" or "peak"), meaning "peak of Jezero". In Slavic languages, including Serbo-Croatian
Serbo-Croatian
and Bulgarian, [7][8][9][10] Jezerski Vrh means "lake peak". The toponym refers to the cirque lakes in the lower part of the Buni i Jezercës on the northern side of the mountain. During the Communist era in Albania
Albania
it had been given the name of Maja e Rinisë ( Mountain
Mountain
of Youth), which never stuck.[6] Topology[edit]

The Cirque
Cirque
of Buni i Jezercës with lakes.

Jezerca is a large rocky peak of dolomitic limestone. There is almost no vegetation there. North, east and west of the mountain top is in great cirque from that in the glacial periods when glaciers were more extensive than today. Today the northern cirque is called Buni i Jezercës at a height of 1980 metres and 2,100 metres in height around 400 metres. Because it is located in the wettest region of Europe
Europe
with around 6 metres (240 in) of rainfall equivalent believed to fall on the western slopes, snowfall is so large that only in dry years do even the less exposed sections melt away.[11]
