Cold Water Resources

Gjirokaster, Albania

Business Description:

This hydro-monument is to the right of the Tepelena-Gjirokastra national motorway, shortly after the branch road to Permet. The fountain rises above the left slope of the Drinos valley in contact with limestone and flysch rocks. The atmospheric precipitation waters that fall in the eastern part of the Kurvelesh Highland (Spruce Edge), through karstic excavations and caves, penetrate deep into the limestone rocks and feed this source.

The slope where the spring comes from is lined with natural oak and shrub vegetation. In the vicinity of the valley, the turnip trees are quite mature. The sound of water, greenery, bird tweets, etc. have long made this place a resting place for travelers. About 20 years ago social service facilities were built near the road. This tourist spot is also frequented by the inhabitants of Tepelena towns, Permet and Gjirokastra. It is easily visited as it is near the Tepelena-Gjirokastra motorway. It has scientific (hydrological, geomorphological), aesthetic and tourist values.
