Through this village passes the river “Valbona” with a length of about 50 km, one of the fastest rivers in the Alps of Northern Albania. The river originates from the mountains of Malësia e Madhe near the village of Rragam of Shala and passes after about two kilometers the border with the district of Tropoja. Where it differs from the cold and clear water like crystal, the picturesque waterfalls and canyons and the “trout” fish that grows in its waters have made Valbona one of the most beautiful and famous rivers in the whole country.
