The north of Montenegro is the area of high limestone mountains.
From the tablelands and plateaus of 1,700 m in altitude, rise vast mountain ranges and ridges of over 2,000 m (Durmitor, Bjelasica, Komovi, Visitor). These mountain ranges are rich in pasturelands, forests and numerous mountain lakes, of which there are 29 in Montenegro. Žabljak is largerst town on mountain Durmitor (2,522 m).
The rivers Piva, Tara, Moraca, Cehotina and their tributaries have cut deep narrow steep-sided channels in the limestone - the canyons, whose beauty and size are unique. In its size, the canyon of the Tara is the second largest in the world.
Lake Skadar, the fertile Zeta plain with the Zeta River valley, and the Niksic field, comprise the third geograpic region of Montenegro. This is a lowland and the only plain area in Montenegro.
