Out of Tirana to Pellumbas, a nice village 25km southeast direction, driving through villages in Erzeni valley known for the good wine and restaurants, great views of Petrela Castle in background . Then we start hiking to the Black Cave, up Erzeni river canyon, and suddenly there's only nature around; bird tweets, river sound and the occasional turtle. The cave has a big entrance and offers spectacular stalactites inside, you can walk all the way to the end. After visiting the cave, prepare for a rocambolesque descend to Erzeni river, through a very steep forest. Down there, cool water pools among giant rocks and trees will
be the reward for the day's hike. 4-5 hour hike.
