Duration :   3 Days 2 Nights
The Price :   £180.00
Start Location:   Tirana

3 Day Kukes Path of Colors and Radomira Hiking Tour From Tirana is made of two main hiking trails. Path of Colors trail from Shishtavec-Novoseje to Caje Village (18km), and the second hiking trail is from Caje Village to Radomira Village  (15 km) in the feet of the highest mountain in Albania, Korabi.

Path of colors is an Outstanding Area of Natural Beauty in Northern Albanian Alps. The path of colors starts from Shishtavec in Kukes to Caj Village and is 18 km long. The Natural Park of Korab-Kortnik is part of this path and goes close to the triple border point between Albania, Kosovo and North Macedonia. The views are breathtaking with flower fields, and the largest alpine pastures in Europe. On the way you may see wild horses running in the beautiful nature. In the ancient times this path was called Scardus, which from Latin means multicolored, due to seasonal flowers that cover the meadows.

The hike from Caje Village to Radomira reaches to the hight of 2150 m. From there you can see the Korabi Valley. The journey goes on to the Radomira Shepherds Pens followed by a visit to the Black Lake of Radomira (1500 m). And finally reaching the village of Radomira at 1200 m height.

 Our tour is operational from May 15th – October 20th.
