The Maharloo Lake is a Salt Lake located in the highlands of the city of Shiraz. It is also known as the Daryache-ye-Namak lake and considered to have a rich concentration of potassium and other salts. The salt that you will find here emerges from the evaporation of water of Rudkhane-ye-Khoshk river which happens on a seasonal basis. The procedure to the water turning salt is really beautiful as the entire lake turns pink due to the red tide. The lake spans an area of 600 square kilometers and opens for migratory birds and wild animals to house during this phase. Nature lovers can really enjoy coming here and spend some moments of quietude in here!
