The Accursed Mountains [Bjeshket e Namuna]
This is one of the most beautiful trips in Albania. If you like the pure nature with its wild beauty than you are in the right place. It is a tour for adventurous people who also are capable to hike for more than 6-7 hours in paths going up and down through the mountains. The hikes are spectacular and the panorama as well, dramatic gorges, untouched forests and impressive waterfalls.
If you like to walk on the everlasting snow and to admire the Alpine flowers blooming and make you forget the tiredness in the top of the mountains up to 2000 m, than you have to come and enjoy this.
If you want to see how the people have lived and still live in such isolated places, to hear about the "Kanun of Lek Dukagjini", The Blood Feud Stories and the Albanian sworn Virgins "Burrnesha" than don't think twice, just make the move.

This trip can be organized also if you are located to Croatia, Montenegro or Kosova! Arrangements needed
