Maharloo lake

Hello everybody.

On 25th December my boyfriend and I will be in Shiraz. I'm looking for information about Maharloo lake. Is it really pink or is it going to be pink in December (maybe the colour depends on the season and/or the sunlight)? How much does a taxi from Shiraz cost?

I live on a small lake, too... so I must admit that seeing a lake is not interesting to me unless it has something "special". Pink colour is something I've never experienced before and the only reason for a possible visit. :-)

I look forward to receiving your kind feedback!

Cheers.

Hi

Maharloo lake is a salt lake. In few years ago, evaporation and drought wipe almost all of it.

The pink color of Lake become of high density of salt.

At all , it is not something like you see in Europe before.

Hi, let's hope that we get enough rain so that you'll be able to see the pink-orange color of the lake. It's pretty amazing. You can be in touch with me and I'll give you the heads-up.

Best,

Arshia
