For many years, Ðeravica was thought to be the highest point in Kosovo (and in Serbia when Kosovo was an autonomous region of Serbia). However, in about 2011 a new boundary survey between Macedonia and the newly independent Kosovo found that the boundary ran over the top of Velika Rudoka, a peak 3 meters higher than Ðeravica, demoting the former high point to second place. The current governmental topographic maps appear to support these elevations and the boundary location.

However, there remains a possibility that a new survey may change this ranking again. To be sure of claiming the Kosovo high point, climbing both peaks is a good idea.
