Rumija is both a good drive and a good climb. Both are exciting in their own ways, and neither is particularly long or exhausting. Rumija is a very prominent mountain range, with the highest point around 1589 Meter. Views - if not shrouded in fog, must be marvelous, both towards Skader Lake and the Adriatic Sea. In trun, Rumija can be seen from far away - from the mountains around Tirana, from Velecikut, and of course Skodra, across the Lake.

This is the "short"hike up Rumija, with a trailhead at a road leading from Stari Bar up the mountain. It is also possible to hike straight up from Stari Bar, though route finding might not always be that easy

The drive from Stari Bar is asphalt, half of the way. This doesn't mean it's always easy. For some parts, its serious white-knuckle driving, as the road winds around the bends with sheer drops. There is also a spot where a narrow bridge is protected by some concrete posts - just wide enough to have our car get through, aided by the co-pilot to give directions. Luckily, this spot is close to Stari Bar, and there is no exposure. It is not easy to find the mountain road out of Stari Bar, so its worthwhile to pay attention to the GPS coordinates.
