Today we are willing to well introduce to you Lake Urmia as it is one of the most amazing spots of Iran. This lake is located in northwestern of Iran in between Tabriz and Urmia.
It’s been always in the center of attention for everyone even in ancient days as it is the 6th largest lake in the world and largest one in the middle east. Many people are of the opinion that this lake was dried up due to persistent general drought in Iran, but also the damming of the local rivers that flow into it, and the pumping of groundwater from the surrounding area.
Luckily, many organization and departments were struggling to preserve this lake and stopped most of activities that caused issued and from early 2019 this is filling up once again. It was the home of several species and birds that immigrated yearly to this spot and many birds watchers came across the world to visit.
Nowadays, it’s one of the highlights of traveling to Urmia and as travel consultants, we would highly recommend visiting this lake either early in the morning or for sunset.
