The approach to the spring is along several kms of bumpy, unpaved road. Once there it’s a very short walk along the river to the spring, which has the most beautiful dark blue centre and turquoise surround. The dark blue is due to the depth...More

The pool is very clear, which is not unexpected since the water bubbles up from an underground aquifer likely coming from deep inside the mountains. This water is apparently the water supply for the locals, so not unexpected that our guide told us that swimming...More

Although it is very touristic, as it is easily accessible, it’s a beautiful thing to see. So definitely recommanded if you’re in the area (as a quick stop on your way to Gjirokastër). Suggest to go early if you want to avoid the crowds.
