Albanian wilderness. Poor but beautiful
• Albanian wilderness. Poor but beautiful
Albanian hinterland was just amazing. When we rolled up to the dirty track on cracked road towards the lake Koman, I could not imagine what incredible landscapes lie ahead. Crazy beautiful canyon with hundreds of fjords and the crystal water of the lake, on the edge of a winding serpentine road, never known repair and crammed dilapidated houses of local residents.
Amazing contrast that simply must be seen. Two completely different worlds - the world of nature and the human world. An amazing country.
The road winding along the edge of the canyon. Somewhere with normal asphalt, somewhere in the cracks, and somewhere just dirt.
But the main danger is not a cover on it. The main danger - species that are opened. After all, you're just constantly be distracted by them.
From the mountains to the lake attracts hundreds of brooks and streams, forming small canyons and gullies through which the transferred bridges
Sometimes the road looks amazing.
Despite all the misery of the coating, the roadside, curves, pillars and the endless wires
Somewhere road reinforced by landslides, and somewhere as lucky ...
ogling while driving around, you need to be careful.
Even areas with normal asphalt can suddenly break off a huge lake, puddle and primed him
But still the head itself is rotated to the left ....
The words are not needed. Eyes speak
The mountains, like floating in the water green icebergs
One of the rivers that flow down from the mountains and at the confluence of the yellow turns into a veritable flood, flowing into the blue expanse of the lake
Canyon Lake Koman in all its glory
All of the canyon slopes are covered with virgin forest.
Villages are so small that these forests actually almost hozheny
These are the only traces of human activity is returned to reality.
The man is present here
An ideal place for the soul
Boat for Two
Rare houses of local residents
As a rule, they look quite unattractive, even the Old
The villages are small, up to a dozen houses, around which the cultivated terraces, where people grow vegetables and herbs
Sometimes there are small vineyards
And yet, there are a lot of wild flowers
The living and the dead
Love is no longer lives ...
This is also a local resident. Many of them found on the streamer
As these residents.
Farmers bred sheep and goats, which are, in fact, their breadwinners
Sometimes you can find quite unexpected things.
For example the sign of the hotel Villa Francaise.
In the village of Koman. Where 15 people live ........
Why surprising to find such a sign?
But then that's basically it looks like a house here
But, by the way, what is worth mentioning separately because it's about people.
About the people who live here.
They are very welcoming and hospitable.
Poor, simple, good.
They are happy to invite you to his house and eagerly talk about their lives.
In the following story, we visited several families and I tell silent about their life and the way of life ...
