Cold Water is a tourist area 8 km south of the city of Tepelena. It has the name “Cold Water” because the area is dominated by natural-rocky springs where the water always flows fresh and clean. The mineral water company “Tepelena” has built a production plant where it is the raw material used by the area’s resources.
Water production is one of the main district revenues, and is one of the most successful water mineral firms in the region.
This hydromanument is located on the national roads of Tepelenë – Gjirokastra, shortly after the motorway ring road to Përmet. The spring comes in the upper left slope of the Drinos valley in the contact of rocky limestone with flushes. The atmospheric rainwater that falls in the eastern part of the Kurvelesh Mountains (the Autumn Bouquet), across the slopes and the karst caves, deploys in the depths of the rocky rocks and nourishes this source. The slope where the spring source is worn with the natural plant of oak and syrup. Near the valley, the rape trees are quite grown. The noise of water, greenery, birds’ birds, etc., has for a long time turned this place into a vacationing environment for travelers. About 20 years ago the streets were built social services environments. This tourist spot is frequented by the inhabitants of the city of Tepelena, Përmet and Gjirokastra. It is easy to visit because it is near the Tepelene – Gjirokaster motorway. There are scientific (hydrological, geomorphological), aesthetic and tourist values.
