Gjelaj i Rrogamit

Gjelaj: A three-km hike (or 4×4 drive) past the end of the asphalt car road brings you to the summer village of Gjelaj.  Due to not really having any telephone signal it’s an underdeveloped and undiscovered gem.  A couple of families have started making guesthouses which we’re promoting this year.  It’s obviously a great place to stay if you plan to hike to Theth, or if you want to take a guide to Jezerca (the highest mountain in the Dinaric Alps), OR for hiking south through Qafa e Zhaborre towards either Curraj i Eperm or the southern, Nderlysa approach to Theth.  Due to the number of abandoned houses, it’s also currently a kind of naturally preserved museum for traditional architecture.
