We drove to Pellumbas from Tirana. Following fellow Tripadviser, we parked at the restaurant Pashai and we’re greeted by the owner/ manager who by the way was charming. We just wanted to walk to the river and stupidly, didn’t take his advice to take one of the boys as a guide. It’s an absolute MUST. We hiked for ages in 40C heat, found the river but did find the canyon. If you thinking of walking, TAKE A GUIDE. Beautiful walk and surroundings, regardless the heat. Well worth it.

The hike itself and the canyon are beautiful. The trail is not too much travelled, but is marked quite well.
Starting point: at the very end of Pellumbas village where you need to park your car. There is a restaurant and a store at this point, and the owner will be glad to explain exactly how to get to the river and the canyon. Even offered that one of his boys will guide us there, but there is no need, as the explanations are good and the trail is marked. In general start at the left side of the school, to the clear trail which goes behind the houses and then follow the white-red-white mark. For the river keep to the left, and for the canyon keep to the right. It’s ~30min one way down and then up on the way back. Not too difficult hike. The water are cold!
Same starting point to the black cave. We didn’t go there, but the guy said it’s ~45min one way.

You can find them as the path to the Pellumbas Cave.

These canyons are located along the Erzen river in Tirana. The water of this river that flows on a rocky ground for centuries has created spectacular canyons. The crystalline water and the depths of the canyons make it possible to wash or swim.
In the part where the river has a fracture about 10 m, a waterfall has been created within a cave. Before the waterfall in the canyons there are bathtubs which in the hot season are used for washing and sunbathing.

To go to these canyons, the path to the Cave of Pellumbas has to be followed, as they are beneath it on the Erzen River. By the way, the Erzen River is 108 km long, with a flow rate of 102 litres per second.
These canyons are a good choice for any adventurous spirit. Their nature has thought about everything.
