near Kallamas, Korçë (Albania)

The trail starts at the hiking map in town. From there follow the road until you can turn left. This road climbes uphill. Once you leave the buildings behind you'll see the first marking. The wide path leads you steeply uphill. Always follow the obvious path unless marked otherwise. Once you reach the top you'll be able to see the mountains of all the National Parks in the area. The path descends through forests close to the Macedonian border. Once you meet a wide path turn left and follow it.
Later the path descends steeply with stunning views of the lake. Once you reach the lake just follow the shore. Don't miss out on the old church on the way. Upon reaching Kallamas again just follow the road and it will lead you to the starting point.
Waypoint

Old walls build to stop streams from running downhill and flooding the village.

    Nice trail, but sometimes hard and passages to climb (on seashore)

    Don't forget your GPS or Mobile Phone, because you will not find all paths. We were alone the whole time, only a Shepard with his goats were on the beach.

    We need 5 hours with little breaks.

    Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful trail. It was one of the highlights of our holiday in 2019! We did the trail in the other direction and had a different path back to Kallamas/Tuminec (I think we followed the official trail as described by the information panel in Tuminec). It was worth coming all the way from Ohrid in Macedonia to Tuminec in Albania!
