This is a relaxing hike through the amazing forest of Bredhi i Hotoves National Park which offers stuning views towards the Dhembeli and Nëmërçka mountains. You can also visit some ruins of a church in the summit where is an inviting place to take a rest and enjoy the views.
The hike starts at forestry office (WP 1) and goes directly up through the forest on a narrow path which can be difficult to identify when the leaves have fallen. After a while you will reach a nice meadow (WP 2) when is easy to lose the trail. Keep left to the trail which goes throgh the forest and then keep again left to the next junction (WP 3). The route ascends gently up to the summit when ruins of church can be found (WP 4). The curch is an inviting place to take a rest and offers stunning views towards Dhembel and Nëmërçka mountains.
The trail follows the crest with wonderful views, keeps right at the next junction approx. 150 meters further (WP 5) and then continues onto the ridge for descending at Qafa e Polonicës (WP 6). Take the decent in your left to get back at the trail head. The decent in your right takes you at Hotove and Kosove village.
The decent is gentele and the trail is broad and easy to follow. After approx. 1.2 km you will see the ruins of a building that use to be the former office of forestry (WP 7). Walk for some meters on the right side to reach a water source close to the stream (WP 8).
