Maja Rrunja e Lurësgreen hike

Summary: Maja Rrunja e Lurës has a long name, but offers a relatively short but invigorating hike. For those wishing to spend some time in the Lure area and visit more than the lakes, Maja Rrunja e Lures is an ideal excursion. Rrunja provides views across Lure National Park, including towards the dramatic Mali i Dejes (see separate trail).

The Hike: One can start hiking from the pass that connects Lure village with Cidhne, or drive a little into the valley that leads to Rrunja e Lures. At an obvious fork (waypoint 2-Parking), both track options are doubtful and it is best to leave the car here. Follow the upper (right) track.
