Gramoz is the highest mountain in southern Albania, 2524 meters. It sits on the border of Albania with Greece. The hike to the summit is easy with a gently ascent on mule paths and meadows on the left side (northen side) of the gorge at Starje village. The orientation to get to the summit ridge is easy, one just need to take the asccent on the northen side of the gorge that drains the basin from the summit.
