Thethi, Albania (or Theth as it is sometimes known), is a tiny village up in the mountains of the Albanian Alps. It is a popular destination among those who chose to embark on the hike between Theth and Valbona over the mountain pass, which gives rise to some of the most spectacular views you will ever see.
To get to Theth, you need to take a shuttle van, which you can arrange from your hostel in Skhoder. They leave quite early in the morning, so you will need to stay overnight in Skhoder before you leave. The drive takes about five hours and is a stunningly beautiful drive. Once you arrive, there are plenty of guest houses and Thethi, Albania hostels that line the streets quite a distance apart from each other. If you are planning to spend the night here in your Thethi, Albania hostel before taking on the trek or just for luxury, you can get the driver to take you directly to the door of your hostel.
There are no shops here to buy food and groceries and there is no bank. This village is quite primitive in what it offers, so you will need to come prepared with cash and ready-made snacks or eat at one of the guest house restaurants. The locals here are some of the most friendly people that you will ever meet and having a meal with them in a guest house is a real treat.
If you have spare time to spend there is a hike to a waterfall that takes a couple of hours to get to that is really nice to visit. There is also a museum along the main street as well. Otherwise, there is not a great deal to do here other than sit back and enjoy the stunning mountain scenery and the amazing amount of stars in the night sky due to the isolation of the town from loads of lights.
