Black Cave Commercialization

The Black Cave Commercialization project is the first of its kind in the field of ecotourism in Albania. The cave has very unique characteristics from an archeological perspective, and from biological and anthropological perspectives as well. The cave is seen as a development magnet for the entire area, which includes some small canyons in the valley below. The ultimate goal of this project is to turn the cave into a tourist attraction by promoting it as a distinct destination so that it is able to generate income. Components of the project include the repair of the current road to the cave, addition of one new segment in line with environmental parameters, and the internal infrastructure of the cave itself (lighting and pedestrian path). This project is being implemented in partnership with the Ministry of Urban Development.
