Mt. Gamti is located in the vicinity of Tirana, north of Mt. Dajti and Mt. Brari and south of Mt. Kruja  This hike is challenging and it caters mostly to experienced & conditioned hikers. The hard work gets a nice reward with the amazing views of Lake Bovilla on the east side, Mount Dajti on the south and the Adriatic coast, west, on a clear day. Mount  Gamti is hike-able all year round except the hot months of July & August when local temperatures reach 40 degrees Celsius.

Picnic lunch is recommended due to the length of this hike. Optional - Traditional lunch at a nearby restaurant. Lunch is at your own expense.

Technical Info: This is a FULL DAY HIKE - 6 to 7 hours including breaks. Travel time to the trail head is 1 hour (one way) with bad road conditions due to the quarries in the area. We reach 845 m of elevation and cover approximately 12 km of trail. The trail is visible and in good shape but the terrain is rocky. The elevation is intense but once reached the ridge, the lengthy part of the hike is on the ridge. Needless to say, we have a steep descent coming back down, so hiking sticks and strong knees are a must.

What to Bring: Hiking shoes, a wind jacket, sunscreen, hat, poles. Please have with you some snacks: picnic lunch, dried & fresh fruit and 2 liters of water! 

WHERE - Meeting Point:     Cafe 'Korner'  @Sheshi Frederik Shopen

WHEN - Departure Time:     8 AM (please arrive 15 min prior)
