The Ishëm River lies in Central Albania and is 74 km long. the main branch, comes from the river Zeza, 22 km long. Most inflows are added by rainwater and snowy mountains. The flow of river water is rapid, so it has formed a canyon. The canyon is separated in the middle by the Black River, which gives it a zig-zag shape. The rainiest months are November and December, so I do not suggest you travel during this period. This river starts to receive inflows from the western slopes of Skanderbeg Mountain and then joins other tributaries to flow into Rodon in Durrës.
