#tripaway Mirdita, one of the most virgin and beautiful provinces in Albania, with all-round above-ground and underground resources, with enviable mountain springs and climate, with rich flora and fauna, invites and welcomes friends, as it knows how to wait. The Durrës-Morinë highway, about 70 km of which cross the territory of Mirdita, is also a chance that creates opportunities for the use of mountain tourist resources that Mirdita has. Also the numerous works of art, give rare beauty to the whole valley of the Little Fan that traverses it. The relief of this area in the whole geographical belt, from the mountains of Kaçinar, Munella, Zepa, Bjeshkët e Oroshit, Valmor, Kroi i Bardhë to the top of Kunora, is distinguished for a diverse development of karst processes. The most special is the Uraka Stream Valley (a tributary of the Mat River), on the slopes of which are some of the most important caves. There are dozens of caves in this belt, each more interesting than the other and very complicated. Archaeological finds belonging to the Neolithic period have been discovered by chance by non-specialists in the Mercury cave, but unfortunately these findings have not aroused interest among specialists in the field. The exception is the Kusia cave of Ndue Gjoni between Mërkurth and Kurbnesh, on the left of the Uraka Stream, which was discovered and studied in 1994 by a group of Roman speleologists, together with Albanian speleologists. The study is not yet complete. According to researchers, the cave has great scientific, cultural, didactic and tourist values. It has therefore been declared a natural monument. #visitalbania #tripaway

#tripaway Home to one of the most beautiful national parks in Albania, Lura National Park, the Dibra region is rich in natural beauty, mountainous landscapes, glacial lakes, countless rivers, and dense forests. Lura’s majestic beauty has been praised by the likes of Edith Durham while the great Albanian poet Gjergj Fishta has said “He who has not seen Lura, has not seen Albania.” Still, to be discovered, the region’s unadulterated nature hides natural thermal springs, surrounded by pines, along with the high altitudes of its mountainous terrain. These mineral-rich waters are some of the most amazing natural wonders in the country, beautiful to behold, and providers of serious health benefits. Albania owes much of its famous culinary delights to Dibra’s indelible traditional cuisine, most notably including the buttery jufka, Albania’s own version of tagliatelle, and sheqerpare, a rich and scrumptious dessert. #visitalbania#beautifulalbania #tripaway

#tripaway For years, Shengjin has been at the top of the preferences for local and foreign vacationers. All this from the good work that has been done in urban development and systematization, cleaning the beaches, improving the infrastructure, services for tourists, etc. The city of Shengjin, with its beaches and lagoons, quality hotels and restaurants and entertainment facilities are the main destination for vacationers. The Virginity of the Cast Sand 1.0 THE SAND THREE The beach of the Cast Sand in Shengjin, is one of the most beautiful areas to spend the summer holidays and is considered by the locals as an "Adriatic oasis". This environment starts from Guri i Marka Nikës to Guri i Camës. It has a length of 3 kilometers. It starts with a small sand dune (sand dune) that reaches a height of 2-3 meters, followed by a Mediterranean pine forest. They create a green belt at a length of 500 meters. Further, the pine belt is interrupted. In the form of a pyramidal site are the dunes that go up to 5 meters, where the mountain slope in a large area is "covered". The highest dune reaches from 80 meters to 100 meters, located on the western slope of the hills of Mount Rrenc. This is a wonderful place, with somewhat coarse, clean sand, untouched by human hand. Here besides the sea and the sun, you can also enjoy the relaxing landscape, the blue sea in the spaces up to Cape Rodon. In this environment for the summer season serves a cafe-restaurant. The road to Rana e Hedhun (Thrown Sand) is: Shengjin-Navy road-former military anti-aircraft unit in the northwestern direction along the Rrenc mountain. The extension of the road leads to Velipoja-Shkodra Beach. #visitalbania#beautifulalbania #tripaway
