Summary: This climb up the Dajti Plateau is a  not-so-frequently used trail starting at Tujan village. From the Dajti Plateau, our hike takes the more frequently used route back to Shermini, and cuts back to the starting point in Tujan village. Food and drink is available on the Dajti Plateau, so you may not need to carry that much.

General location and approach: Tujan village is an easy drive by car. Minibuses (furgons) also go to Tujan.

Other Information: Both trails have been recently cut free from intruding brushes and brambles, and are a joy to hike. The trail from Tujan to the Plateau somehow ends in a military zone, which however was no issue. You may be able to avoid the military zone by branching off right (south, towards the cable car) before reaching the first bunker on top.
