Bogova Waterfall, a Natural Monument visited by local visitors and foreign tourists


The Bogova Waterfall, rising 20 meters above its pool of crystal clear waters is a Natural Monument, part of the National Park, Tomori Mountain and remains an exquisite place, one of the most visited by local visitors and foreign tourists. The Bogovo waterfall appears in the lower part of the village of Bogovo, along the road leading to Skrapar. It takes approximately 45 minutes from Berat to go down to the waterfall and its natural source.

Bogova Waterfall is an exotic place with virgine landscape and pristine waters. It is situated on the left bank of the Osumi valley, surrounded by dense lush forests, rich hues of green.

Near the waterfall there is a small resting place for a picnic to relax. There you can watch the water that falls from a height of 20 meters and falls into a pit with a depth of about 12 meters. The water is clean and cold. Everything is perfect, where nature gives you the feeling of relaxation and pleasure.

The origin of the name Bogova is Slavic, which in Albanian literally translates to “of the gods.” Upon reaching the village center, you will follow the trail in front of the bus station for about 30 minutes on foot and then walk alongside the river until you reach the waterfall. You will easily reach your destination by following the river and the road signs.

The scenery immerses you in a tropical paradise that seems to be entirely untouched. The sheer clarity of the water, the calming sounds of the waterfall and the green landscape that surround this area give you an idea of how the world must have been in its very beginnings. In the hot summer months, the temptation to dive into the refreshing water is great but only the truly courageous make it into its very cold temperatures.

The surrounding villages also offer magnificent panoramas of vineyards and farms. Following your visit at the waterfall, you can grab some lunch in one of these villages on your return. The food is always delicious and fresh around these parts.
