Shorabil Lake of Ardabil - Tasnim News Agency

The leisure complex of Shorabil is located near the lake. The lake is ringed by a scenic roadway offering views of the lake and the nearby Sabalan Mountain.

The basin was covered with mud and high concentrations of salt and other minerals so that no fish could survive. In 1998, the government of Ardabil started diluting the lake water by linking rivers from the surrounding area. After almost 2 years they also started growing a kind of fish called "ghezel-aala" in the lake which is famous for having pink meat and wonderful taste.

In 1999 a floating restaurant was built and placed in the middle of the lake. Which was transferred to the government but it was later shifted to the shore as they could not handle the maintenance and other technical difficulties.

The mineral-rich water of Shorabil Lake is believed to have healing impacts on some disease, that’s why many tourists visit the lake for medical reasons. This lake is definitely worth visiting and even camping for a night or two when you are on the North-East of Iran.

Things to Know Before Trip
