  • Korab – (western side)


Starting point:

  • Gramë mountain pasture


Description of the trail:

This trail connects the summer pasture of Grama with the villages on the foot of Deshat mountain range via the mountain of Grama (2,345 m). From the hut, the trail moves uphill on the left side of the stream until it reaches the meadow and then continues the climb south, traversing along the left side of the gorge with the stream on the right. After a gentle uphill of about 2 km, the climb continues towards the east, to the highest point of the pass at 2,992 m.

From the pass, a steep zigzag trail moves down. Losing about 340 m of altitude over approximately 1 km, the trail towards Zagrad continues left (west), traversing the grassy slope where it gains about 150 m of altitude over a 2 km stretch. This almost level stretch leads close to the border, where it descends south along a steep meadow trail. Within 1.5 km it passes by a shepherd’s hut and from there the trail continues the descent southwest towards the village of Zagrad on a gravelly trail.
