Description of the trail 

The beginning of this trail is at the Prevalla area which is on 1515 m altitude and 45 minutes’ drive from the city of Prizren, while the final destination is at the top of Shar Mountain Bistro cirque, approximately 8 km or 4 hours hiking. Prevalla is known as a small ski centre with three different climates, continental, polar and Mediterranean which can be experienced on the same day. In most of the area there is snow from November until May. The highest peak of the zone is at 2651m/asl and it is surrounded with other peak points with approximately similar altitude. The path of this hiking route goes close to the stream of the river Lumbardh (Bistrica) which flows through mountain valley to Prizren and further to Albania. The first few kilometres of the trail are more physically challenging, while further it gets easier and flatter before it moves on toward the forest and rocky part before the waterfalls. One of the main characteristics of this area is the proximity of around 500 m between two Lepenci rivers which belong to Aegean Sea drainage basin. The route provides an opportunity for meeting wild animals like Chamois - wild goat.
