We meet at your hotel lobby and drive up to the mountain through the asphalted road. After we enter the national park, we stop at the upper station of the cable car and here we prepare to start the walking. Our destination of the day is Tujani Peak at 1524m above sea level.
The trail stretches through dense pine and beech trees. Part of the trail goes nearby a gravel road that was built to drive to the military area.
At the top of Tujani peak, you will be amazed by the views of Bovilla lake in the north, the national park in the east, and the Adriatic Sea in the west. After taking a break and some photos, we head back through the same trail.
The trail is 4.8 km long both ways. The level is considered easy, with max elevation gain of 450m.
After returning to the starting point, we can enjoy lunch at any local restaurant and later head down to BunkArt 1 museum. This is the biggest nuclear bunker built during the Cold War in the 70s in Albania. The bunker is located underground of Mount Dajt and it's covered with around 130 rooms. Inside the museum, you will get to know more about the interesting history of the communist area in Albania.
In the afternoon we finish this day tour back at your hotel.
