Eco-Tourism Destination Albania (Drilon-Tushemisht)

Drilon-Tushemisht is one of the unmatched areas with natural beauties next to Ohrid Lake. In such a small geographic space are nicely included some of the Albanian nature pearls like: Drilon Springs, Ohrid Lake, typical houses from the area, narrow pedestrian paths, picturesque landscapes, which create a wonderful oasis with multiple tourism development opportunities in the area.  Despite the natural wealthy opportunities the zone can offer, its tourism potentials are yet underdeveloped. The main challenge for the zone is the lack of customized touristic models and other commercialization services. To overcome this challenge, AADF is considering working to design project that includes architectural and development plans for the area. This project is to provoke investments that enhance, promote and activate natural resources of protected that have been untapped, or underutilized.
