The Bolkar Mountains in the Central Taurus Mountains, located between the borders of Niğde, Adana, Mersin, and Konya, attract many domestic and foreign tourists with their glacial lakes, unique landscapes, and green vegetation.
Amateur and professional photographers who visit the crater lakes of Karagöl and Çinili, situated at an altitude of approximately 2,650 meters, capture not only the natural beauty but also photograph the Taurus frog (Rana Holtzi), also known as the "silent frog," which is protected under the Bern Convention.
Photographer Fatih Kızılkaya stated that the Bolkar Mountains host numerous endemic plant and animal species due to their location.
Kızılkaya mentioned that many people from various parts of Turkey and the world come to Karagöl to take photographs. He stated, "Karagöl is home to the silent frog and the reverse tulip, also known as the Taurus tulip. If there are those who haven't noticed these beauties, they should definitely come here. Çinili Lake is located 15 minutes away from Karagöl. It is likely covered in ice at the moment. It is a perfect place for photography."
