There might be as many Guri i Zi's (black rocks) in Albania as there are white rocks or red rocks. To our knowledge, this 'black rock' is the highest, topping out at way over 2000 Meter.

Guri i Zi is one of the prominent highpoints on the western side of Shkumbin valley. Its striking formation is only recognized from nearby. Views are exceptional, and when the weather is clear, one may have a glimpse of the Ohrid Lake from the summit.Tomorrit, Valamares, Mali i Thate and many more peaks can be easily made out.

In the lower reaches, the trail follows old wood roads, some of which are no longer passable to vehicles. Because of the secondary growth (following some heavy logging a few years ago) much of the trail is under the shade of trees, which makes it possible to climb the mountain even during the hot summer months.

The last few hundred altitude meter are over grassy slopes. These provide grazing for sheep, and you may plan your way so as not to come too close to the herd and the sheep dogs.

We also visited the secondary summit.

We gave it a moderate rating as orientation can be difficult until you reach the grassy slopes.

Note the hike is marked as a ballon hike. The total return trip from the camp to the two summits and back is 12.5 kilometers, and may take 5 hours.

Because of the long approach, it might be advisable to camp at the trailhead. For the approach, see trail # 3241472

    Very interesting trail. We are acctually going to Bishnice (very close to the trailhead) this weekend but I think it would be impossible to climb the summit.:( There should be a lot of snow...

    Aaah, very good. When you go to Bishnice, I recommend the road from Proptisht to Slabinje to Losnik to Bishnice - its all rock and gravel and should be good in winter. The northern part (via Buzahishte) has stretches with shum balta. Also the last piece from Bishnice to our trailhead would be impossible now to go by car....

    Are you caving there? The summit might be nice when the snow has settled, in spring....

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the tips! I'll suggest to our local driver this route. We are going for a weekend in a local house of Bishnice as a gathering for the end of the year - just party.:-) Sunday is free and I'm thinking to make it to Guri i Zi. Let's see how it goes.
