Bored in Tirana? Nothing to do? Frasher too far? The beach too crowded? Bad weather in the highlands, but sun in Tirana?

Here is a short (about one hour) 4WD drive with an interesting 2 km drive through the river bed of the Zhllima River.

The drive starts on the old Tirana-Elbasan road, at the turn-off to Baldushk. Follow the Baldushk road for a little more than 14 kilometer, until the end of the asphalt.

Follow a bumpy dirt track for about 4.7 kilometer, where it fords the Zhllima River for the first time. For the next 1.8 kilometer, traces of a track follow the river bed, or in and out of it. For the remaining 6 kilometer, follow a good dirt road to to the old Tirana - Elbasan asphalt road, which has become very quiet after the opening of the Elbasan tunnel. On the asphalt, turn left for hundred meter or so to arrive at Kasemi restaurant. Order your well-deserved lamb meat from the spit.

In summer, during a dry spell, the track is not very difficult. This may change dramatically in other seasons and after rains. Pick your challenge.

This is also the way to the trail head for hiking Shen Marie (wikiloc #4012194).

    Did this trail today (Nov. 11-11-2014). Nice. Some difficult clay and deep ruts on the track up from the river. The river bed no problem.
