Thethi Description From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Theth is a community in the Shalë municipality, Shkodër District, Shkodër County, northern Albania. The community is at the centre of the Theth National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty. History Local tradition asserts a single common ancestor for the community (one Ded Nika) and suggests that the population moved to Theth some 300 to 350 years ago in order to preserve their (Catholic) Christian traditions. Visiting Theth in the early 20th century, the traveller Edith Durham said:I think no place where human beings live has given me such an impression of majestic isolation from all the world. Durham described Theth as a "bariak" of some 180 houses and also observed that it was almost free from the tradition of blood feud (known in the Albanian language as Gjakmarrja) which so blighted other parts of the Albanian highlands. Present day Theth remains remote. It is most easily accessible by a 25 km unmade road from the village of Boga which is impassible during the winter months and is not generally suitable at any time of the year for motor vehicles without off-road capabilities. Although the Kanun (traditional Albanian law) remains influential, Theth has not suffered from the recent (post-Communist) reappearance of the blood feud which has troubled other areas of Northern Albania. Ironically, Theth boasts one of the very few remaining "lock-in towers", an historical form of protection for families that were "in blood".

    Hello, Is it possible to take a rental car from Shkodra to Thethi? I understand that the roads are not good, but maybe if one drives slowly and carefully one can make it or would I need a 4x4 "jeep"? Thank you for your help! Barbara
