Tourists Flock to Tuz Lake

Tourists Flock to Tuz Lake

Turkey's important wetland area and a crucial site for preserving biodiversity, Tuz Lake, has started turning pink due to the algae and bacteria living in its waters. 


This color transformation has made Tuz Lake a popular destination for both local and foreign tourists.


Located within the boundaries of Aksaray, Konya, and Ankara and being Turkey's second-largest lake, Tuz Lake has begun to turn pink due to the algae and bacteria it harbors. 


The change in color has attracted the attention of both local and foreign tourists. Some visitors enjoy walks amidst the unique natural beauty, while others visit the lake barefoot in its salty water to seek therapeutic benefits.


Mariela Simon, who visited Tuz Lake from Mexico with her family, shared her excitement about seeing a salt lake for the first time and described it as an extraordinary experience. She mentioned that this was her first trip to Türkiye and expressed her admiration for the beautiful people, food and environment. Simon encouraged others to visit Tuz Lake, highlighting its unique beauty and the fact that it's a free attraction.
