Maharloo Salt Lake

 Iran is home to so many incredible natural wonders, and the extraordinary pink lake happens to be one of them!

Less than a one-hour drive from Shiraz, Maharloo Salt Lake is not only Iran’s most accessible pink lake but also one of its most photogenic.  

Most pink lakes are also saltwater lakes, in which only a few types of algae can grow and survive. With enough light and heat it produces a pink pigment that gives the water its hue. Interesting right! This is also why the colour can be best seen in summer months.

Have you ever visited the pink lake before in other countries ? Let us know your thoughts!
