Trail Updates 3 September 2017
Ceremi Path – As if the “Horrible Hole” weren’t enough to deal with, Horrible Hydropower have destroyed 80m of the top of the path.
In July they were NOT managing their explosions very well, so better to check with Alfred @ Rilindja before setting off.
IN CEREM: BEWARE of an evil guy named Bajram. He’s been awful this summer. His house is the first on the road when you enter Cerem from the south – and he’s trained his children to watch for tourists and drag them into his house, telling them all kinds of lies: That Berti’s is closed, that he IS Berti, no wait, he’s Kujtim Gocaj, etc. Do NOT listen to this guy. He also tries then to charge people 20euro for coffee and insanity like this. Here is a picture of Berti’s Guesthouse.
Maja e Gjarperit Trailhead:
The Short cut up to the Ceremi Car road may be over grown with Bracken.
Posts are up near Gjarper peak and in Stanet e Milloshit, but the signs have not been put up yet this year.
Trailmarking towards the Stan of Cen Doci (on the way to Mulosmanli) isn’t really there yet.
Maja e Rosit:
Signposts are totally destroyed, being replaced soon.
Qafa e Shelegut / Piramida 18 loop isn’t really marked yet.
Shpella e Dragobise:
Bears have destroyed the signposts for the bottom of the Shpella loop, but the markings are good so you can still find it.
WARNING: This is most dangerous part of the year for going up there as new bear-mamas are bringing their cubs out of dens for the first time, and are very nervous!
Guri i Stokes view point: Hpp developer are refusing to let people access the path.
