Trip to Dardhe, skiing and snow
Voskopoja and Dardha are two destinations that represent the interplay of history, culture and traditions. Dardha village is located 19 kilometers southeast of Korca, at an impressive 1300m high altitude, which leaves us with the image of a long snowy winter. Dardha has become known throughout the country, not only for its nature and climate, but especially for the traditions, the culture of living and the outstanding people that have given it to the country.
