The Valamar lakes are located on Mount Valamara in a large glacial complex, at an altitude of about 2200 m above sea level. They form a group of three glacial lakes, with an average length and width of 300 by 200 m, separated by sea sediments. In these pools, the water is crystal clear and cold. In winter, when the surface of the Valamar lakes freezes, they take a completely different shape. Water bodies have important scientific, geological and cultural values, as they are rich in animal life and form an interesting ecosystem of high mountain lakes.
Lake Ohrid, located on the border of North Macedonia and Albania, is the deepest and most ancient lake in the Balkans. The water filled a depression of tectonic origin formed 5 million years ago. Several other bodies of water on Earth, such as Baikal, have a similar origin. There are about 200 endemic species of fish, marine animals and plants. You can swim in the lake. In summer, the water warms up to 21 degrees Celsius.
