This tour offers a combination of car travel and hiking.
Starting from Librazhd we will drive along the border of Shebenik Jablanicë National Park to Zgosht (14 paved km / 20 min).
The route from the village of Zgosht brings us to the visitor centre of the National Park at Fushë Studë (11 km / 30 min).
Here we can have a stopover at the visitor center, have a look at its natural museum and its manifold informations about the park. From here it is just 600 m to the Fushë Studë Lake, a place with stunning scenery.
Another drive on a gravel path (13 km /30 min) brings us to the Fushë Studë Lake – Barrake e Djegur (Burnt Hut), our starting point for the hike.
The hiking trail (two-way trip) from the Barrake e Djegur to Faqet e Lemume, our final destination, is 3 km long with smooth slopes (2 hour-hiking). During this hike we pass the glacial Dragan Lake and walk through beech forests and alpine pastures.
At Faqet e Lemume we reach a height of 1845 m above sea level. From this peak the whole beauty of the park lies in front of us with high forests, alpine pastures, some of the highest summits of the park, the border with Northern Macedonia and the landmarks from the communist period in Albania.
