Geo-Tags: AL 
Zeitbedarf: 4:30
Aufstieg: 1305 m
Abstieg: 1305 m
Strecke:4.6 kilometer to the summit, but it is nice to combine it with a hike along the ridge and a slightly different trail back. This makes for 10,8 kilometer and approx 8 hours roundtrip
Zufahrt zum Ausgangspunkt:The vicinity to Gjirokaster allows to stay in comfortable hotels without losing much time in the morning.

When in Gjirokaster, Cajupi is right in your face, and the people of Gjirokaster get excited when talking about it - or hearing about your intention to make it to its summit. Still, we are not aware that Cajupi is climbed very often by visitors, though shepherds are going there regularly as evidenced by the many water holes on and behind the mountain.

Shepherd and dog activity start only when the snow is gone, and an earlier time of the year might be advisable. May seems to be perfect.

The west face of Cajupi is fairly steep, and the ascent while not difficult is not for those not accustomed to heights. Perhaps this is a reason why Cajupi doesn't see many visitors, or does not appear in the guidebooks.

An early start is advisable.No potable water along the trail.
