Blue Eye / Syri i Kalter

You know these stories when you arrive at the place and what you expected is different from the view you found? That was the case this time, when we reached the spring called Blue Eye.

Located on the way from Gjirokaster to Ksamil, the source of the Bistricë River with azure color and incredibly cold water. When we add to this the depth of the source reaching 45 meters, we can expect a beautiful view. This desire is enhanced by beautiful illustrations on blogs and instagram showing an empty spring and beautiful nature.

On site, however, we were surprised by a lot … starting from a lot of cars on the access road, paid entrance, lack of parking spaces, and ending with the very place of the source, where there was literally a crowd of people. People came there as it would be something extremely nice.

It seems that summer is not the best time to visit this place, or maybe it has just become too popular?
