Videos | Gallery | Unexplored | Stories
Qafë shtamë National Park ( Also known as Shtamë Pass National Park and arku Kombëtar i Qafë Shtamës) is approximately 25km from Krujë and is 2000 ha of mountain scenery, lakes and forests that will draw you in, even if you are just on a drive on the pass. The highest peak is 1724m, so expect beautiful views here.
The park, along with legends about the “Queen Mother’s Spring“, is popular with hikers and campers, though caution should still be required as Brown Bear and wolves, but this should not stop you from enjoying this beautiful scenery. A relatively “wild” place and one where nature surrounds you from the moment you set foot in the park.
The water from the spring is a source of bottled water to plant just outside the park. It is pure and crystal clear and a great source of myth and stories. Try some and see if anything happens, oh and don’t forget to send a photo in showing what you got up to!
