Geocache Description:

Valbona Cache   

Albanian traditional cache in Prokletje mountains   

  • Valbona Cache is located in Albania's Prokletje mountains in 1850m above see level.

    It's situated on a little peak in the saddle between Valbona and Theth valley, not far away from the foopath between Theth and Rrogami village.

    We can recommend this walktrip through river-beds, beech forests, mountains meadows and sharp rocks in both directions because this walkway is realy "trekking friendly" - you don't need any climbing equipments, just good physical condition, and on the way you will find several streams full of water, strawberries fields and also lot of places suitable for camping. In the top parts you can enjoy amazing views on the Prokletje's karst scenery and peaks.

    The whole trek between these two villages (or round trip form one of them as well) could take about six hours, depending on you, your navigation skills, and of course weather. But the footpath should be easy to find and not lost. It is often used by natives and also foreign travel agencies.

  • Cache (between MICRO and SMALL size) is hidden under a pine tree, behind stone.

    Once you find the cache and will place it back, please ensure it is not broken or waterlogged and it is safety hidden. In case of any incident it would by best, you could fix the problem by yourself in-situ.

    A big Thanks goes to NeXu$ for the recovery of the cache. [ 7/16/2014 ]
