Not far from Berat rises the majestic Tomori, home to the Tomori National Park (Parku Kombëtar i Tomorrit), which spreads over more than 4000 ha, and is a local favorite for camping, trekking, hiking and even pilgrimages. The highest point of the park is at 2415.7 m above the sea.
The Tomori National Park is a green area, with beech forests, and large alpine pastures all around. You’ll find many herbs, medicinal and aromatic, especially in the south, as well as some endangered species such as Astragatus autranci, Aubrieta Intermedia, Cupris baldacii and Nepeta spursei. In fact, the area boasts more than 20 plant species considered endangered or extremely rare.
If you adventure here, don’t forget that this is a wild park, with permanent tenants such as brown bears, wolves and wild boars. But there are also various reptile species you should be aware of, including poisonous snakes: vipers. Birds are represented by several types of eagles, woodpeckers, wild pigeons, wild turkeys, and many others.
Tomori National Park (Parku Kombëtar i Tomorrit) is crossed by many trails and footpaths with a dramatic change of pace. Nevertheless, no matter your level of experience, don’t adventure without a guide.
