The Kukes prefecture, in northern-east Albania near to the Kosovar border, which includes almost 120,000 people , of whom 75% are rural - is one of the poorest regions in Albania. 

Because of its isolation, this was the Siberia of Albania where politial prisoners under Enver Hoxha were sent. Nowadays, because of the natural beauty of the region there is a huge potential for an eco-touristical enterprising.
