Full description
Explore the natural wonders and archaeological significance of the Cave of Pellumbas on a thrilling hike. The Pellumbas Cave, also known as the Black Cave, has a history dating back to the Paleolithic period. Catch spectacular views of the Black Cave and Erzeni Canyon. Travel from Tirana to Pellumbasi village on a minibus for 45 minutes. Once at Pellumbasi, start the hike towards your destination. Enjoy views of the forest, the Erzen River, and Dajti Mountain from the marked trail. The hike to the cave takes about 1 hour to complete. Upon arrival at the cave entrance, give your feet a break. When ready, step inside to start your cave exploration. The space is very large and looks like a mine. See the cave and its unique stalagmites and stalactites with the help of torchlight. The cave stands at 350 meters above sea level and forms a tunnel 70-80 meters long. It is said to be one of the earliest prehistoric settlements of the area. After exploring the cave, head down to the village and transfer back to Tirana.
