Lake Koman is located in the southwest of the territory of the southwest of Dukagjin. The lake formed in 1978 when the Fierze hydroelectric dam bordering all three of the region’s biggest districts was erected. The rivers providing water for the lake are the Drini i Zi, the Drini i Bardhe, and the Luma Rivers. It is a worldwide natural treasure when we regard the spiritual power and ”life’s battery recharge’’.
