This is one of Tirana’s most popular caves. The journey from Tirana to the village of Pellumbas takes about 45 minutes. We will then walk about 2 km on the road leading to the “Black Cave” or “Black Cave of Pellumbas”. The scenery along the way is amazing, the mountain lying in the canyons of the Erzen River. To get there, we will follow the Tirana-Elbasan national road and turn left on the road to Pellumbas village. The road is good up to the village of Pellumbas.
Pellumbas Cave or Black Cave is about an hour’s climb to the village of Pellumbas, 27 km southeast of Tirana. The cave is 360 meters deep and 17 meters high, with fantastic stalagmites and stalactites as well as nude nights. The cave is completely dark as there is only one entrance. 40,000 years ago the cave was the early home of bears. During the world wars, the cave was a secret place and used by locals to shelter.
After going to the cave we will do a small picknick all together.
