It was established as a national park in 1996 and is located 25 kilometers (15.5 miles) northeast of Kruja. The bottled drinking water of the same name is found here and is famous because it was historically delivered daily to the royal family in Tirana due to its curative properties. Its location is 1,100m above sea level nestled in the mountains. The park is comprised largely of black pine forest and is famous for its curative water, special atmosphere, fresh air, natural beauty and the unique landscape that it offers. Here at the park you will be able to enjoy popular outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, picnics, yoga, etc.

A Tirana-based activity group called Klubi Discover Albania frequents this park and offers day-trip packages for around 1700 lekë per person (pictured above). Please click here to check their Facebook page for more information and schedule.

Accessing the park is easiest by car. Tour and activity groups provide transportation as part of their package. The road to access the park heads out from the center of the city. Along the road to the park is a memorial for the Weeping Gorge (see English Guide) as well as access to the Mother Goddess Fountain.
