Zufahrt zum Ausgangspunkt:The greatest difficulty is finding the trailhead. Leave Tirana on the the Elbasan road. Before crossing the Erzen River on a wide bridge, in Mullet, turn left and as you approach a cemetary, turn right. Follow this road antil it leaves the last houses and climbs up the hillside towards Priske Mountain. Where you have a good view across the Erzen Gorge towards Pellumba village, park at an obvious wide spot next to the road (there is space for almost a dozen cars)

A perennial favorite for many people in and an around Tirana.

The hike starts at the south end of Priske Mountain (the mountain south to Dajti, or right from Dajti when seen from Tirana). It climbs the south-end of the mountain, which affords good views towards Pellumba Cave which also is a worthwhile outing.

From the top (south-end) of the mountain , it is worthwhile and recommended to keep right and approach the edge of the cliff which affords excellent views across the gorge. Although the path seems to to disappear, keep on going down in the same direction, and you eventually reach the artifical lake of the Erzen river. The lake may at times be empty. Turn right and follow the dysfunct irrigation channel, which is easy walking as there is not much up and down. Beware some steep drops. Eventually, clearly marked tracks lead back up to the car park 

The hike is easy to reach, not far from Tirana, but it feels like much farther away.
