the world's most spectacular roads


SH20 is the name of the sharply winding and precipitous ascent in a steep and narrow zig-zag road in the northwestern part of Albania.

This very scenic mountain drive is 29,8 km long. It links the towns of Hani i Hotit and Tamarë, in the former Kelmend municipality, in Shkodër County. Most of the road runs along the Cem Selcit river. It climbs up to Leqet e Hotit mountain pass.
It's actually one of the best roads to ride in Albania as nobody knows it's been re done so there is very little traffic. The drive is pretty steep (7% average gradient) with countless hairpin turns.

The road is completely asphalted now and is in really good shape. It is frequented by many cyclists and motorcyclists. When it snows really heavily it may get closed. Along the way there are several bunkers and abandoned military houses.
