“Seasonal lake in Kars steppe”

Kuyucuk Lake Wild Life Reserve
Ranked #15 of 20 things to do in Kars
Attraction details
Reviewed 4 June 2015

Easy to find just 40 minutes from Kars. The viewing tower gives views over most of the lake. Two local photographers told us this was a bad time to visit, between spring and autumn migration. We were pleased to see white winged and whiskered terns and the expected waterfowl.

We spent several days in late July 2001, birding and exploring the Kuyucuk Lake area. We had permission to camp out at the lake, which we enjoyed greatly. Despite it being very early in fall migration, before the September peak, we saw 15 shorebird species, several species of ducks, many other waterbirds, plus a scattering of landbirds. A telescope is great to pick out the distant birds, but many birds can be approached close enought to see with binoculars. Visitors should be aware that the facility is in the early stages of development, so make sure to bring your own water and food, if you plan to stay more than a few minutes. In addition to birds, insect life is diverse, and frogs abound in wetland edges.

Thank Tim B
