    Two hundred meters after the fork, the road is closed by a gate and you have to pay 150 leke for the car and 50 leke for each passengers. After that, the single lane road passes over a small a dam and winds up and down between woody hills.

    No sign told where was the spring but it was obvious that if we followed the pupils, we would get to the spring! They joked and played all the way as all pupils do when they are out in a group! And after a short walk (200m) on a narrow path we reach Syri i Kalter, which means “the blue eye” and unlike in 1988, it was really a blue eye!

    Syri i Kalter is a Vauclusian spring. A Vauclusian spring is a spring rising under considerable pressure from a deep, vertical or very steep bedrock water-filled passage draining a deep aquifer. Vauclusian springs occur especially in karstic regions. The name of Vauclusian spring have been coined by hydrogeologists from “Fontaine-de-Vaucluse” spring. By pure chance, I happened, two weeks after our visit to Syri i Kalter, to visit Fontaine-de-Vaucluse spring!

    After we had visited the spring, we discovered that a newly built wooden bridge allowed to walk back directly to the place where we had parked our car! However, I advise visitors not to use it to go to the spring: you will better enjoy the sight if you go the usual way which is not very long, anyway, not more than 200-300m. Use the bridge only for the way back!

    Shortcut!
