Driloni is one of the wonders that nature offers to Pogradec

Driloni or Voloreka as the people of Pogradec call it, is one of the wonders that nature has created here. It is located 5 km east of Pogradec, very close to the tourist village of Tushemisht.

Driloni is a river located on the outskirts of Lake Ohrid and Pogradec, in Albania. This nature monument can be visited if you follow the Pogradec-Dogane-Saint Naum road. It is a large limestone spring source that flows vertically to the water at the end of the limestone bloc and continues flowing into the Ohrid Lake. The water comes from Lake Prespa through the Black Mountain. Water emerges as a major source with a flow of 7 m³ / s. 

Driloni is a karst spring consisting of three streams of water flowing to flow several tens of meters further, on the south-east shore of the lake.
One of them, the most important one creates a large water basin, where you can walk, sail, enjoy the beauties of the rich flora and fauna,
Oak, maple, poplar, water willow or reed trees make the air fresher and cleaner. While swans and other birds that live here, as well as fresh fish, offer a wonderful landscape.
