Zrebar Lake: One of The Most Elegant Places West of Iran

It is one of the most beautiful fresh water lakes in the world. Interestingly enough, no river flows into the lake. Its water comes from a number of fountains and seasonal rains. The water on the surface of the lake is frozen in most days of winter.

Located in the Zagros Mountains within Kurdistan Province, Zrebar is 1,285 meters above the sea level. It has a length of 5km, a maximum width of 1. 6km and a maximum depth of 6 meters.

The lake is surrounded by mountains covered by forests of oaks. There are also trees of wild pears, hawthorn and almond.

There is a great deal of folklore about the origins of this lake amongst the Kurdish people of the area. They believe the lake is a mythical one, particularly because its water is supplied by itself, not through the flow of any river.

Zeribar Lake is a major tourist attraction in Western Iran. There is a four-star hotel near the lake which provides tourists with an area to camp and appropriate amenities as well as security. There are also restaurants serving Kurdish dishes and delicious including grilled fish.
