About the Lybeniq Canyon Hike
This hike is a moderate one, and not signed. First of all, you have to pass the primary school of Lybeniq, then get into the forest, where is a sheep path which you can follow. You will go through the forests, and it looks like a real jungle. In some parts, there are some big rocks, where you need to use hands, and for your safety, ropes as well. So, this destination is great for climbing too.
As an unexplored outdoor destination, this is a perfect spot for outdoor enthusiasts who are willing to explore the deepest parts of Kosovo.
There isn’t any water source, therefore you need to take around 2 liters of water. The total distance is around 5 km.
