Flag of Komani Lake Explore - Image by Ivan Sache, 28 September 2019
Lake Koman was formed when the rugged Drini valley was dammed in the early 1970s, allowing Albania to quickly develop its own industrial base and become an energy exporter. The huge lake behind the VauDejes dam contains some 320 million cubic meters of water, and stretches 30 km eastward to the town of Fierza, the location of a second dam which holds back another lake that goes all the way to Kukës near the Kosovo border.
The Komani Lake Explore company, established in 1994 to offer kayak tours on the lake, also operates a boat, Dragobia and a ferry, Berisha, inaugurated in 2015.
