The route continues in the area of Karpen, where there is also an artificial island and a campsite on the beach of Karpen. Continue to the village of Lumi, heading south to describe along the village of Bago, which also coincides with a service area – Camping.


The village of Bago is also the point where the ascent from 14 m to 180 m begins near the village of Stërbeg, the ridge of the hills that coincides with the highest points that offer panoramic views, between the hills, the sea and the lakes.
