Summer is heating up fast in Tirana, but look at the bright side, it’s Friday! If you haven’t already made plans for the weekend, continue reading. Even though most of the people escape the big city life on weekends and go the nearby beaches in Durres or in the fancy south, there are others that don’t follow the trend and decide to choose the mountain instead of the sea. Something really interesting will happen this Sunday, June 19 in Dajti Mount.
During one of the events organised by Dajti Alpino Turistik, one of the guests, a foreign businessman, said something that sounded so unbelievable: “This is the fourth time that I’m visiting Tirana and I haven’t yet seen the mountain. Where is Dajti Mountain?”
It’s visually striking from every corner of the city if a building doesn’t block the view. Now, all of the people that live in Tirana or are visiting the capital for a short or long period, travellers, tourists, and many others, have the chance to meet the mountain on a very special occasion. Dajti Alpino Touristic Association in cooperation with several diplomatic missions to Tirana and sports adventure enthusiasts will organise the inauguration of the hiking trails in the National Park of Dajti, Qafeshtama, and Biza.
All the hiking routes in these areas now are signed and marked and wait for avid walkers to hit the trails. The guests and participants will have the chance to follow three different itineraries. The first will start in Linza, the second in Tujan and the third at the Old Quarry (Gurorja e Vjeter). The walk will start at 7.30 hours and the groups will be guided by members of Dajti Alpino Turistik Association up to the Dajti field where the event will kick off at 11.00 hours with the presentation of the project and a delicious lunch in nature. Join the group, have fun and get ready for the evening match.
Be the first to walk these trails and make new friends. Bring water, fruit and sun protection.
The purpose of this project is to make the above-mentioned areas attractive destinations for tourists and the fans of hiking, trekking and walking. This is expected to help the local economy.
The project couldn’t have been completed without the support provided by the embassies of the Czech Republic, Austria and Slovakia and respectively their ambassadors, Bronislava Tomasova, Johann Sattler and Milan Ciganik will attend the activity along with the Albanian Minister of Economy Milva Economy and her Czech counterpart Karla Slechtova .
