The pink wetland of Lipar in Chabahar, southeastern Iran, is a unique natural place for lovers of the marine environment. The pink wetland of Lipar is located just 200 meters from the northern edge of the Sea of Oman and south of a namesake village in Chabahar, in Sistan and Baluchistan province.
This unique lagoon is one of the attractive natural attractions of this region that people who are interested in the marine environment can enjoy a view of beautiful landscapes.
What is remarkable about the wetland, which located on the edge of Lipar’s seasonal lagoon 20 kilometers to the east of Chabahar, is its water which looks pink. This body of water which is 10 hectares in the area accounts for 90 percent of vegetation in the region and is home to a large number of species, flora, and fauna.
You might think this is a kind of milkshake, but in fact, it is one of the saltiest waters in the world with a beautiful and seductive appearance. During winter the lake covers a distance of about 10 hectares and more than 14 kilometers of it also gets over flooded. Not many facilities are available around the lake and therefore, this site looks very neat.
Sometimes, sea oysters and sea salt are sold by the locals and in other parts of the region, locals are collecting salt from the lake in real-time. The pink water reaches the yellow coast, and in combination with the greenery of plants and the sky’s blue, it presents a picture to the viewer not seen anywhere else. About 90% of the lake is filled with planktons plus organic and mineral substances that enter the lake through the river and the sea.
