Sotires waterfall

Sotires waterfall is one of the most unique in Albania, located at the northeast foot of Mt. Tomorri. It’s formed by the major source comes from the longitudinal cracks in the craggy limestonerock.

To get there one has to drive on an unpaved road to Sotire village, approx. 15 km from the town of Gramsh (see driving map below) and then hike for about 1 hour (3.6 km) on an easy trail to the waterfall (see the hike map below).

In front of waterfall is located a inviting meadow for camping/resting with wonderfull views towards Mt. Tomorri and the waterfall.
