Llogara National Park

Llogara or Llogora National Park is a national park in Albania declared since 1966 by the Albanian Government. 

The park covers an area of 1,010 hectares (2,500 acres) and protects the forests on the north side of the Llogara Pass between a height from 470 to 2,018 m (1,542 to 6,621 ft) above sea level.

In the park can be found many black pine (Pinus nigra) trees, Bosnian pines (Pinus heldreichii), Bulgarian fir, (Abies borisii-sign) and ash trees.

Air currents around the area have caused trees to bend in many interesting shapes, like the Pisha e Flamurit.

Along the road are several restaurants, hotels, and a small wooden cabin complex. The area of the park and the surrounding mountains are used mainly for hiking and tracking tours. A paragliding site serving annually as an international competition venue is located south of Llogara.

Along the twisting road are several local vendors of honey and mountain tea. Caesar's Pass (Qafa e Cezarit) named after Julius Caesar who set foot in the area in pursuit of Pompey is also located near Llogara Pass.
