Welcome to Ersekë
Ersekë is a small town in south-eastern Albania about an hour south of Korca. It is 900 meters above sea level in the Gramos mountains and is the highest town in Albania.
It is a nice little town with a large pedestrianized central square, small restaurants and hotels and has a very Alpine feel to it.
There is a small ethnographic museum in the main square, which houses a collection of traditional costumes, textiles and other crafts which are unique to the this region.
Further up the pass the road climbs to the Barmashi Pass which is 1759 meters above sea level.
