Hiking in the Holy Mount of Tomor is an amazing experience. The region’s holy mountain unfolds great beauties and a unique view of the wild surroundings. The hiking tour lasts around 3 hours and it is available to everyone (no professional skills are required). Not far from Berat’s city center, the ancient home of the Illyrian gods, Mount Tomor, rises some 2416 meters above sea level. The mountain is famous for the National Park Tomori (Parku Kombëtar Mali i Tomorrit), but also has a deeper, spiritual significance. This sacred mountain, named for and presided over in Albanian lore by Baba Tomor or Father Tomor, carries a special significance among even modern day Albanians. Another of the country’s fascinating traditions, Tomor exemplifies much about the Albanian spirit.
