Komani Lake was artificially created in the late 1970's, following the construction of the Komani Hydropower Dam. It took almost two years for the waters of the Drini River to fill the lake to its present level.
Ancient valleys have been transformed into magnificent fiords that grace the length (34.5km.) and width ( from 60 to 300-400 meters) of the 12km2 surface.
The changing panorama from Komani to Fierza is a superb landscape canvas of canyons and almost vertical slopes.
Several surprising basins formed where the Shala, the Valbona and other rivers spill into the lake offer refreshing swims and energetic kayaking.
