Start your hiking adventure early in the morning. The objective is to summit the top of Mount Çika, 2045m above sea level and the highest peak of South-western Albania. The hike during this day would be an intense one and takes about 3-4 hours one way, requiring a good physical condition and proper hiking outfit. However, the view from the top is a breath-taking corner of the world. Your day will be characterised by imposing mountain peaks blanketed in deep green forests; crystal clear seas fringed by long white beaches inviting you to dive in. Overnight in Llogara.
