Those more adventurous, manage to enjoy this new destination by setting up camping tents for a completely individual experience, surrounded by high peaks, about which the locals tell medieval legends.

According to legend, Prince Lekë Dukagjini, the second most important leader of the Albanians after the hero Gjergj Kastriot Skënderbeu, spent the last years of his life in this area, where he finds his names, such as “Guri i Lekës”, a strategic point which overlooks the valley, from where it was thought that Dukagjini protected the country from the arrival of the Turks.
