The emerald lake and the waterfalls

 

The Emerald Lake owes its name to the beautiful emerald color of its water due to the osseous and fossil micro-organisms that are on its bottom.
It is a natural, small lake lost behind a dense barrier of hazels, ivies and bines. Another characteristic of the lake except from its beauty is its cold water.

Description of the landscape from one of its many visitors:

“The forest road from Skra passes through oak forests and continues downhill to end in a small glade that looks like a small caldera.
Vertical slopes arise from almost everywhere. Next to the glade a streamlet with clear water flows. We go over a bridge made of logs.


  The logs stand against heavy iron tracks; remnants of the old allied railway line. Plane trees, jungle vegetation; the path has almost disappeared. The atmosphere looks like changing; a sense of humidity is penetrating us. The sound of water is heard even louder until the waterfall of Skra shows up.
A small cave is formed on the roots of the rock while thin stalactites are hanging from the roof which never stops tearing with crystal drops.
A little further, a small natural lake with crystal turquoise color is located lost behind an almost impenetrable barrier of hazels, ivies and bines.
A second, bigger waterfall follows. The wandering which almost seems like profanation continues. The inclination of the ground is normalized. 
Plenty of grass and plane trees create an amazing area between the flumes. Further below however, the nature gets wilder once again. The ground becomes steep; a second waterfall flows down with noise over the stream, which we have to cross.”
