Cave of Pellumbas

Shpella e Pëllumbasit, Tirana, Albania

Description:

If you need to see more of the Mount Dajtit National Park that looms to the east of the city, spend a day around the village of Pellumbas. Here you can take hikes and scramble your way up to a beautiful natural monument. There’s a trail from the village that meanders through the mountains for two kilometres before you get to a cave packed with stalagmites and stalactites, but also with evidence of human activity going back than 300,000 years. It descends 350 metres into the mountainside, and during the Second World War made a refuge for the villagers of Pellumbas.
