A challenging road from Përmet to Çarçovë

The Përmet-Çarçovë Road is a very exciting drive in the Gjirokastër County, in southern Albania.

Përmet-Çarçovë Road

The road is paved but in very bad conditions, with narrow sections. It links the town of Përmet (Gjirokastër County) and Çarçovë, a village in the Gjirokastër County through Petran. It’s part of the SH75 road. The route, located within the Fir of Hotova National Park, demands 100% concentration.

This road has humbled many egos. Drive with care as this is a mountain road with hairpin curves and dangerous drop offs. The road runs along the Viosa river, unprotected by guardrails. The most demanding part of the drive is 27.8 km long.
