Although it is very touristic, as it is easily accessible, it’s a beautiful thing to see. So definitely recommanded if you’re in the area (as a quick stop on your way to Gjirokastër). Suggest to go early if you want to avoid the crowds.

I'd recommend getting there between 7-9 am. Afterwards there are just too many visitors to enjoy peaceful and quiet nature
