Hiking

Hiking in the National Park is one of the greatest adventures in Albania. The village of Thethi itself is situated in a wonderful valley surrounded by more than 6 peaks of above 2500 metres high. The area is rich in attractive sights like the waterfall of Grunas, 30 m high,the amazing cold-water sources of Okol ,and the caves of Birrat me Rrathe (Round Holes)and Arapi.

In the park people often amuse themselves by hiking ,mountain climbing ,skiing (especially on the eastern slope), fishing, even mountain biking and spelunking . Almost 90%of the park area is covered by beech tress, providing shade for many different types of flowers such as the Wulfenia Baldacci ,discovered by the Italian botanist Baldacci .Fascinatingly ,this flower is found only in Thethi.

The fauna is just as rich as the flora,distinguished by the famed Golden Eagle and Rrisqebulli. In the waters of the Stream of Thethi you can stay in local hostels designed to display traditional alpine architecture. Upon arrival in Theth enjoy a walking tour of the area visiting the Grunasi Canyon, Thethi waterfall of Gjecaj, The Blue Eye of Theth, the caves, Catholic Church and the tower of the isolation. Visiting Theth in the early 20th century, the traveller Edith Durham said; "I can think of no place where human beings live that has given me such an impression of majestic isolation from the entire world".

The evening meal and overnight will be in villagers houses, where the hospitality and tradition more than make up for the lack of luxury. A unique experience not to be missed.
