Source of Crni Drim (Black...
Source of Crni Drim (Black Drim) is one of few sources which fill Ohrid Lake (693m) with water but it is most beautiful. It is located at the SE corner of the lake, by the Sveti Naum monastery. Source is actually few heactares large lake in which there are 45 individual sources. Some are above water some below. Those below are most interesting and you notice them as boiling sand on the bottom. Water in the source has 10°C and is crystal clear. It comes from Prespa Lake through Galicica (2287m) massif. Amount of water is 10 cubic meters per second. Like a short strong river water from the source spils into the Ohrid lake. It takes only 12h for whole water in the source lake to be replaced by the fresh water. Two rowing boats (motor is forbidden of course) make sightseeing trip of the source lake. Don't miss this. On the photo is only maybe 1/10 of the source lake.
