Zufahrt zum Ausgangspunkt:Thethi is reached best through the Boge valley, from Kolplik. The road to Boge is asphalt, from there it is better to have a high clearance vehicle. The pass to Thethi reaches an elevation od 1700 meter, and may not be open until May. It is possible to hike from Boge to Thethi, avoiding the road

Thethi is often referred to as the Chamonix of the Albanian Alps, and it is said that it receives up to 10,000 visitors a year. The upgrade of Albania by the Lonely Planet to a top destination in 2011 has certainly contributed to Thethi becoming a "boom" tourist destination . .

While Thethi certainly is a top destination for climbers and alpinists, it is a good destination by itself. 

There are many local inns that offer multi-bed rooms and full board. Don't expect Swiss standards.

There are  many "local" hikes, which anybody can try. An easy hike is described here, which is similar to the the "Rundwanderweg #1" described in the GTZ/GIZ Wanderfuehrer, published by Huber Verlag, with map. The guidebook is in German. The Thethi and Kelmend Wanderkarte (50,000:1) is both good for roadtravel and hiking in much of Northern Albania.

The hike itself starts at the Thethi bridge (the one for cars). It passes the defunct school, follows the river downstream. Continue below the Kulla and past the old mill and the second bridge, consisting of pipes (for people only). Follow the river for another several hundred meters, until signs lead you up left to Grunas Water Fall. From there, track back several meters until signs lead left to the Grunas Canyon. From there follow the road on the opposite side of the river back to the footbridge. Muster enough courage to cross it, and visit the mill, the Kulla and the church, and return to the center of Thethi.

There are also many "local" hikes, which anybody can try. An easy hike is descrobed here, but calculate 2.5 hours if your are frequent hiker, or more if you still need to warm up.
