After the first climb, we arrived at another small hut, where we bought a cold coke to prepare for the next steep climb. This part was the hardest part of the track, as you will ascend quite quickly. After this steep way up, you will arrive at the mountain pass which took us about 3,5 hours, including breaks. The whole trail is marked with red/white marks, guiding you in the right direction. During some parts of the trail, you have to be careful to not slip, however, the majority of the ascent is alright.
From here on, we started with the descend, where you generally have to be more careful to hold your grip. After around 1,5 hours, we arrived at another hut. Here you could eat traditional pie, build of different layers of pancake. I can definitely recommend trying it!
After this stop, you arrive at a forest area, where descending is relatively easy.
Afterwards, the joy was over. As a very steep and rocky descend showed up in front of us. Something I really dislike. But at 4pm, when we arrived in our guesthouse in Theth, we could finally say: “WE MADE IT!”. The pictures in this article do say it all, doing the Valbona to Theth day hike is definitely a recommendation when visiting Albania.
