This tour will take us to Bodin Fortress, a cultural heritage monument in Bodin, Elbasan District. Our hike starts from 'Fshati i Ri' - Kakunja (New Village) and continues on to the Old Kakunje. We will visit here the ruins of Shen Marie church. This trail will take us across areas with typical old homes now abandoned and beautiful natural settings until a tall standing rock, named "Askolaj". We cover part of this trail on "Kakunja Waterfall" tour but this walk/hike will take us deeper into the villages.
