Bogova Waterfall. The fresh water of the river which is created by the waterfall will follow us all the way. We will be "disturbed" by the voice of river, sounds of birds and wind. The weather will be cool and pleasant.
After an easy 30-minute hike, we are in Bogova. The hidden waterfall will be music to the soul. Brave tourists can jump and swim in the cool, clean water.
Drive to Polican, a town founded with the purpose of creating guns. During communist times it was the most secure place in Albania. Nowadays it seems like a ghost town though the taste of the past is still there. Old gun factories, sophisticated bunkers and tunnels built to protect the important persons of the Communist government are still here.
After experiencing the communist era, we will move to Osumi Canyons, known as Colorado of Albania. It's about 15 km long and the highest part of canyon is about 78 m. Created millions of years ago, it gives a special feeling with the Osumi river going through and there are different kind of trees and birds and places to swim or take photos.
We will take a short break to explore a bit and after admiring the beauty we'll go on an adventure trek to explore the canyon, crossing the river several times. After 1 hour, we will stop since it's impossible to walk. If you are brave enough, you are invited to cross to the other part by swimming!
We will learn about two legends: one about Abaz Ali, a fighter and the cousin of prophet Mohammed, whose soul locals believe has come to rest for eternity here in our land. The followers call themselves Bektashi, the twelfth Islam branch (and the biggest in Albania, with its headquarters is Tirana.) The other legend is a secret that will be disclosed to you when we are at the canyon!
