SALT LAKE

 




Salt Lake is the second largest lake in Turkey and was at one time twice its present size. The Melendiz furnishes Salt Lake with fresh water, and a subterranean source supplies it with a vast amount of salt water. During the summer heavy layers of salt can reach a thickness of up to thirty centimeters along the shore. In the spring a variety of birds such as flamingos, cranes, and sea gulls can be seen on Salt Lake.
