the world's most spectacular roads


Dangerous high mountain road between the city of Shkodër and the Theth National Park, in Albania, with a total length of 80km. The road includes asphalt, gravel and river crossing sections.

The road starts in Shkodër, a city in northwestern Albania in the District of Shkodër, of which it is the capital. 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.


The surface of the road is gravel, stones and sand.

Been there with friends on motorbikes. Almost all the way to top of the ridge was asphalt road at the end of September. This particular road, all the way down to Theth is quite easy to ride. Just be warned if you decide to leave Theth the other - southern - road, it's really bad one. It's feasible, though locals tolds us that the road isn't very good. About 50 to 60km of mud&gravel. Spectacular view though, worth seeing.

We drove this road on the 10th September 2014 with an automatic Honda civic 1.8 because we were told it had been greatly improved over the summer and no 4x4 was needed.
We regret it. I suppose the rain and the constant traffic of 4x4 has deteriorated the road quickly in just 1 months. It cost us a flat tyre and quite a bit of damage underneath the car, even the locals told us we were crazy.
Anyway we made it in and out. Beautiful place and amazing people.
