Prevalla’s Rock Peak rises above the southern side of the tourist centre and village Prevalla, reaching an altitude of 1991 metres. In maps the peak is signified in Albanian as “Guri i Prevallës”, while in Serbian you will find it as “Pavlov Kamen”. Prevalla’s Rock is easily noticeable from the beginning of Zhupa’s valley. The peak is the starting point of the river Bistrica’s pass, which is connected to the ridge of Bistra 2 peak. One of the sides of this peak separates Prizren’s Bistrica river from the Lepenci river. The pass between Prevalla’s Rock to the root of Bistra 2 Peak is reached in 25 min. Geographical coordinates: 42.1586,20.963633

The peak of Creviced Rock is the nearest peak to Prevalla village, located southwest from it. It is an attractive peak, especially when seen from Prevalla, from where it looks pyramid-shaped. It has an extensive northern slope, which is ideal for skiing. The peak is also connected with Konjushka Peak and one can see Prevalla from the top. The name of the peak in the local Serbian language is Rascepti Kamen, which literally means Creviced Rock (Albanian: Guri i Çarë). The Serbian toponym is used in the Yugoslav maps. The origin of the peak’s name comes from a group of creviced rocks located 100 m away from the peak, which are noticeable from Prevalla. On a side note, the peak is home to the biggest herds of chamois. This peak is completely located in Kosovo’s territories and in the old maps its altitude is noted as 2466 m.
