  • A very nice valley with nice people too. There are lots of mountain routes to enjoy.
  • A great place to be alone or with family. Great place to relax and have some time near nature
  • Nice place to escape the heat and crowded beaches. Good places to stay (esp residenza), nice hiking trails ( to theth-6hrs) and daytours between 1 and 10 hours. Best to reach by ferry from koman to fierza
  • Spectacular valley, spent whole day exploring around organised by outdoor kosovo tours, good lunch in Fusha Gjesë, a bit overcrowded with cars.
  • Quite simply some of the best mountain scenery and hiking I have ever experienced. Get local maps from the Residenzia lodging for a detailed picture of your options.
