Lura National Park in Albania
Videos | Gallery | Unexplored | Stories
Lura National Park (also Parku Kombetar i Lurës), located 25km west is Peshkopi, a town that sits 651m above sea level! Lura National Park really holds some gems though. The 12 glacial lakes that are home to flowers and pristine valleys are whats so attractive here. With Fir, beeach and Pine Forests to surround you the break at the water with water lilies will be a real treat.
This is also a wild National Park though, so beware that mammals such as Bear, Wolf and Lynx inhabit this place. Even so, it is still popular with tourists and of interest to the scientific community.
The government has been working hard her to rehabilitate the forests though, much of which were illegally harvested after the fall of communism. The area is slowly recovering and with the returning tourism to the area, it looks set to really shine as a jewel in Albania’s National Parks.
