Beautiful Natural Wonder — Trashed by Tourists and Poor Organization
Aug 2021 • Couples
The Blue Eye spring itself is lovely, albeit small (maybe 10 meters in diameter). But this natural wonder is being ruined by uncontrolled mobs of tourists. From the gate to the spring is 2km. Some people walk it, even during the 40 Celsius day we were there. Traffic is a mess. Chaotic parking. And the spring itself is bursting with people wading in the water or swimming, or diving in from the nearby bank (not allowed, but no one stops them). Zero police or park security. See it if you must, but prepare to be distressed. And don’t get me started on the mass of litter that is everywhere.

Really not worth the 200leks we paid to see this touristic scam
Aug 2021 • Couples
Crowded and polluted by hundreds of tourists with lots of cars bar restaurant street seller... not as pristine as on pics shown. We much preferred the nature in the north which is much more preserved with less tourists

Absolute paradise
May 2021
Absolutely unreal beauty. The water is is a pure bright blue color, surrounded by plants and beautiful cobalt blue dragonflies. I wish I could spend every day here. Definitely worth the trip.

Nice but not something breathtaking
Jul 2021
A bit overrated. It is nice, but not something unique. Coming by the macadam road (2km) one might consider to be "getting in the nature mood", however infrastructure around the spring is damaged (the little bridge is like something from Indiana Jones films, platform above the spring is broken). Garbage nearby doesn't contribute to the whole picture. Just to mention that we visited very early (7 AM), there was no crowd (mentioned in some ratings), and the nearby restaurant (which seems to be very nice place) was still closed.

Beautiful

Interesting phenomena of nature, a spring with water gashing out from a seemingly bottomless cave. A dip in 10C water is definitely a must and is very refreshing.

Definitely worth the Visit!
Jun 2021
If you like nature, water springs, you should visit Blue Eye.
Sometimes in high season, there can be a crowd, but in low season you should not worry so much.
When you turn from the "main" road you will drive on very bad dirty road with lot of sharp stones for 2 km.
Entrance is 200 Lek and parking included on the dirty road.
There is a couple of souvenir shops and 2 restaurant close to the Blue Eye in the Blue Eye Forest.
Water is cold and constant of 12 C, but nice to visit.
