...Breathtaking nature view and my first written and stamped postcard from Albania and both places are National Parksツ shows the trail from Valbona (995m) over the Valbona Pass (1.759 m) to Thethi (716m)... follows the route of an ancient mule track linking the tribal regions of Shala and Nikaj... about two-thirds of the territory of the country is either hilly or mountainous ..

The areas around Thethi and Valbona constitute two separate Albanian National Parks, the Thethi National Park and Valbona Valley National Park.
