The Shebenik-Jabllanica National Park is one of the largest National Parks in Albania. It is in a fairly remote corner along the border with Macedonia. The area has great touristic potential, but as of writing, infrastructure is minimal. There are some tourist huts being built in Stebleve, and we were told they will open in winter 2012/2013. We stayed one night in Stebleve, in a private house, but arrangements should be made in advance. There is no restaurant or cafe or bar in the village. Stebleve village is not being touched by the new (still under construction) asphalt road connecting Librazhd and Peshkopi. The school closed long ago as all children are raised elsewhere. We hope that the vicinity to a future asphalt road may bring more paying guests to the area. Stebleve can be reached from either Librazhd (shortest drive) or from Bulquize/Peshkopi (see 'Peshkopi to Librazhd'on wikiloc). The trail starts in Stebleve center, from near the mosque. It returns to the main road, follows it for a few hundred meter north to a functioning police post and signboard for the National Park. A road turns off to the right - if followed it will lead to the border with Macedonia. It is not allowed to cross the border by car. Instead, a few hundred meter after the sign board on the road to the border, turn right again and follow the old military road, as far as you get. It ends at an abandonned police post, but we decided to park the car a few hundred meter earlier, near some shepherd huts. The actual drive may take 40 minutes You may also want to visit the website of the local Stebleve Assocciation: http://shoqatastebleva.com/index.html
