Guri i Nuses, with 1837 Meter altitude is not a summit in the strict sense. The highest point of the range to which Guri i Nuses belongs is Maja e Zebe, a rather benign looking knob topping out at 1987 Meter. But Guri i Nuses wins the first prize for drama and - as we shall see - remoteness.
Given the relative prominence of Guri i Nuses as a destination, with summit cross and exceptional visibility into the Valley, it is surprising that there are no established paths whatsoever, save for some very faint traces between waypoint E and F. But the terrain around Guri i Nuses is exceptionally confusing without clear views of where you are going. This makes for a rather torturous grass- and bushwhack. While beautiful to look at, movement is very difficult in the jumble of rocks, stones, dead trees, weeds and brambles. Treacherous carstic holes of uncertain depth make the passage less than straightforward.
Thus we are not sure whether to recommend this as a trail or leave it to your own imagination to find a better way. Having tried a different return path to our camp, we eventually joined our original trail, if this is to say anything. While after cleaning up the coordinates the GPS recorded a cumulative elevation gain of 663 Meter, the raw data had more than 775 Meter gain, accounting for the many more up and downs over the trail-less terrain. We gave the trail a difficult rating, owing to the difficulty of orientation and the exhausting hike.
We camped at the trailhead upon our return. Probably better and depending on the season, you may camp there the night before you hike, to avoid more of the heat of the day.
