“Many foreign tourists come only for mountain tourism in Albania. The main points of mountain tourism at the moment are Thethi, Valbona and Shala river, where visitors stay for several days”, said Xhimi Lama”, representative of the tourist operators.

The capital Tirana is turning into a day stop destination, with foreigners preferring to visit its hills and mountainous surroundings.
