Covering an area of 205 square kilometres, the National Park Galicica extends between lake Ohrid and Lake Prispa and crosses the boundary of Albania. The national park is divided into two parts- Stara Galicica (that extents to the south of the Polce pass) and Galicica that covers the northern side.
Beneath the lush-green forests and grazing grounds of the park is actually a limestone Karst topography that extends to an elevation of 2265 meters above the mean sea level. The forest cover is only till about an elevation of 1900 meters above which you can clearly see the barren limestone mountains. Currently, the park is home to 1600 vascular plants species that include 21 threatened species. Of these 15 species were actually first collected and described right here at the park. The park is also home to 124 species of birds, 18 species of mammals, 18 species of reptiles and 10 amphibians that can be spotted around the lake.
Take a day off to hike around the gorgeous terrain as you are treated to fresh air and stunning mountain views all around.
