About Salda lake Yeşilova, Burdur:
    Salda Lake is a slightly salty lake surrounded by rocky lands and small alluvial plains in Yeşilova district of Burdur, 4 km away from the district center. Salda Lake has no outflow, that is, it has a closed basin. The characteristics of Lake Salda with its white sand and turquoise waters are as follows:
 
       Features of Salda Lake:
The circumference of Salda Lake is 44 km.
Salt Lake depth, which is one of Turkey's deepest lake reaches up to 185 meters. Some sources state that Salda Lake is the third deepest lake in the world. What else do I say to those sources and leave this link here.
Salda Lake is one of the two places in the world that has the characteristics of the planet Mars. Another is located in the north of Canada. The reason for this is that the white clay-like soil on the shores of Lake Salda also exists on Mars.
There are seven white islands that started to be seen when the waters in the lake receded.
Salt Lake, Turkey is the world's first fifth-most clean lake.
It is estimated that Salda Lake was formed about 2 million years ago. The lake and coastline are in the status of 1st Degree Natural Site. So it is not open to development. I do not know how it will happen in the future, but this place is definitely evaluated by making concrete here in a commercial way.
The sand of Salda Lake is white and reminiscent of the Maldives. That's why we're here in Turkey Maldives diyiy are also Saldivar. Magnesium is the mineral that gives the sand its white color. In fact, when there is something left in the lake for a long time, what is left turns white. This proves that the lake still produces magnesite.
Salda Lake and the surrounding black pine forests have endemic plant and animal species unique to this region. There are 3 endemic freshwater fish in the lake and creatures such as wild boars, foxes and turtles around the lake. Two species of the mullein plant grow only on the southern coast of Salda.
Since Salda Lake is a tectonic crater lake, there is a lot of soda and magnesium in its water. These minerals skin very well. You can even peel with the clay-like sand of Salda Lake.
The water of Salda Lake is drawn from year to year. Detailed research has been done on why the waters are drawn.
