near Këlcyrë, Gjirokastër (Albania)

This full day tour takes you into the northern area of the Permet district, an area less explored but with just as much beauty. After rolling flat out of Këlcyrë, a steep uphill asphalt leads you up into the hills. One the top-area of the tour (kind of a plateau, compare with elevation profile) you bike through various settlements, one of them Topojan, a once big village which is now nearly abandoned. After this village it’s for about 1km partly pushing, before you come back to more easy terrain. This is a wild area with a sense of isolation – but as always pretty safe & friendly. An 11 km downhill finally takes you from the hills down to the valley again, where the main road leads you to the starting point Këlcyrë. In the village of Zhepovë, just before you drop down into the valley on this tour, you`ll find a minimarket & bar. Nevertheless start well equipped, especially with water.
