We went in early October and it was beautiful weather and also all the colors were showing. There are plenty of things to do around the lake, horse riding , horse carriage rides , bike rentals and many beautiful picnic spots around the lakes. The kids had a good time collecting leaves and looking at many beautiful wild flowers along... More

Excellent hotels around the lake, food was good, declaring the lake as natural park did not do much good as it atracted rural crowds who have nothing better than going around the lake and polluting the air. An excellent escape from the wet and hot summer days of the cities. Cool breeze lots of trees and oxygen and all that.... More

This lake is one of best in Turkey. You can spend a calm and peaceful time with your family and children can play around while you are preparing the barbecue party. You can also see the cows and horses passing nearby.

Although it is not a big one, it is very suitable for people who look for relaxation in a quiet environment. Nice restaurants are overlooking the lake which adds more taste to the meals.

The lake is beautiful, but needs a lot of restoration and clean up work, to ensure continuity and attraction of people, animals , and birds.

This is a beautiful unspoilt lake set amongst mountains covered in forest. There is both a road and walking path around the lake. You can walk, drive, take a horse drawn carriage or ride a horse around the lake(5km). There are 2 five-star hotels at the lake and one restaurant which makes a lovely lunch stop after the walk or...

We have been there with our friend's family. Great place for kids also. Rent a bike or ride a horse around the lake to see the beauty of mother nature. This place is also great in winter times under snow. There are good hotels to stay in. You can see every color in autumn during leaf fall.
