We were heading into the Gramsh - Grabove area, waiting what the weather would be like. As one year before, while the rest of Albania was nearing a heat stroke, Gramsh experienced major thunderstorms, rendering some of the more difficult access roads impassable.

We therefore had to reorganize, and decided to hike Mali i Komjanit.

Mali i Komjanit is, with about 1790 Meter altitude, not particularly high compared to its neighbors Valamares or - across the Devoll River valley - Tomorri mountain. But Mali i Komjanit stands out and manages to dominate, together with the hugely scenic Split Rock, the Grabove/Lenie area. On top of this, Komjanit offers very interesting hiking and because its somewhat central location, offers great views of the area. Another gem in this area is Lake Dushkut, usually well hidden from view.

Komjanit is a little deceiving, as a hike to its summit appears to be easier than it actually is. The summit is surprisingly rocky, with steep grassy patches and seemingly botttomless drops. Still, there is a faint trail for most of the hike, but be prepared for some airy scramble near the summit.

The hike starts at Teqe Dushkut. The shrine can be reached from the Gramsh-Grabove road by turning onto a little used dirt road, which is in remarkably good condition (see wikiloc # 4905873).

From the Teqe, follow the road for a few hundred meter, until it transforms itself into a footpath. Pass under Komjanit mountain and head towards a clearing on the gentle north ridge of Komjanit. Then turn around and follow the ridge, through light forest towards the summit rocks. Where the rocks begin, at waypoint B, the summit is still 100 Meter above you, which you reach with some light but sometimes exposed scrambling.

    Why are you only going downhill? And how'd you get back to the car? D:

    We didn't park the car on the summit! :)

    (if the uphill and downhill are the same route, we only select one for wikiloc. Often we publish the downhill route, because in most situations you will avoid some wrong turns that you took when going up. From the top you also may see a better option or trail that was hidden from view when going up.)

    A very airy-looking summit ridge indeed! But definitely one that I would like to do! https://www.wikiloc.com/outdoor-trails/mali-i-komjanit-4906040#wp-4906046/photo-2503166

    Here it looks more risque than it actually is. Once you know the way it is ok. But as there a no trail descriptions for these kind of mountains in Albania, and as there were no publicly shared GPS trail coordinates before we published this, we had to search for the way with a lot of forth and back, also in places that were not so comfortable..:) https://www.wikiloc.com/outdoor-trails/mali-i-komjanit-4906040#wp-4906046/photo-2503166
