Tomorri Mountain National Park in Albania
Videos | Gallery | Unexplored | Stories
Tomorri Mountain National Park (also Parku Kombëtar i Tomorrit, Tomori, Tomori National Park, Mount Tomorr and Mount Tomor) is home to Mount Tomorr, a mountain that rises 2416m above sea level and presides over the area like a watchful father. Indeed, it is the center of many folklore stories from the area and is even classed as sacred, with some Albanians going on pilgrimage to the mountain.
The city of Berat is not far, just 23km, is on the UNESCO World Heritage List for the Historic Center of Berat, with it’s typical Ottoman architectural character, and for a sixth century Codex Purpureus Beratinus which is one of Albania’s most valuable possessions for cultural heritage. In August every year, the Bektashi sect organises a religious festival in honor of Abbas Ali. Christians climb the mountain too, in order tohonor the Virgin Mary on Assumption Day.
Along with good access to activities and adventures in Tomorri Mountain National Park, there is also opportunity to see rare wildlife and birds of prey, so make sure you keep your eyes and ears to the ready. It is also a wild park so Bear and wolf roam here too.
