Zarivar Lake


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

Zarivar Lake is also called Zeribar or Zrebar and Zrewar is a quiet and beautiful lake in western Iran. With an area of ​​3,000 hectares and its unique geographical location, the lake is home to a variety of aquatic species and birds. This is one of the most beautiful freshwater lakes in the world. Interestingly, no river goes to the lake. Its water comes from a number of springs and seasonal rains.

The lake’s surface water is frozen most days of winter. Zarivar is located in the Zagros Mountains in Kurdistan Province, 1,285 meters above sea level. It has a length of 5 km, a maximum width of 1.6 km, and a maximum depth of meters.

The lake is surrounded by mountains covered with oak forests. There are also wild pear, hawthorn, and almond trees. There is much common folklore about the origin of this lake among the Kurdish people of the region.

They believe that the lake is a myth, especially because its water is supplied by itself, not by the river. Zarivar Lake is one of the most important tourist attractions in western Iran. Near the lake, there is a four-star hotel that allows tourists to stay, as well as security. There are also restaurants serving Kurdish and delicious food, including grilled fish. This lake was registered in the list of the natural heritage of Iran on January 21, 2010, with the number 102.

The wetland has also been considered a wildlife refuge by the Environment Organization since 2009. Zarivar Lake shines like a turquoise blue among the mountains and plains of the surrounding green space and is one of the most attractive and exciting places to explore and enjoy.
