the world's most spectacular roads


High mountain road between the city of Koplik and the Theth National Park, in Albania, with a total length of 56km. The road includes asphalt and gravel sections.

The road starts in Koplik (also known as Koplik i Poshtëm), a city and urban municipality, serving as the capital of the Malësi e Madhe district in the northwestern tip of Albania, situated north of the city of Shkodër. After 2 hours driving, the road arrives to Bajraku i Thethit, the entrance door of the Theth National Park (Albanian:Parku Kombëtar i Thethit), a national park in extreme northern Albania declared by government decree in 1966. The park covers an area of 2,630 hectares and is located along the Theth River.


This infamous road is tightly hairpinned and bumped, an exquisite winding mountain drive with sharp and blind curves and hairpin switchbacks leading the traveler over the mountains. The road includes some steep sections, without market central lines, is very narrow, barely wide enough for 2 cars at the same time and it has not protections or guardrails. The surface of the road is asphalted at the beginning (SH21) but then turns into gravel and sand, and chains or snow tyres can be required anytime.
