Salda, should not be destroyed by any reason or rant, annuity of private company. Salda, the deepest lake of Turkey, is located in Yeşilova, Burdur. Thousands of tourists come to see Salda Lake to see it’s turquoise colored lake and white sands.

Despite of being the deepest lake of Turkey, Salda is the third deepest lake of the world.  The depth of the lake can go up to 185m. Interestingly, there is a similarity between Salda Lake and Mars. Both have white magnesium loaded rocks. The area of the lake was announced as 1st grade natural site area in 1989.  For this reason, building construction around lake was prohibited. The lake is rich in terms of its minerals, due to soil properties. The water of lake is a cure for certain skin diseases. Municipilaty provides service, so that tourists are able to swim and camp aorund the lake. 

If you want to visit Mars, visit Turkey. That’s where you’ll find lakes so salty that the only bugs able to live there are species that could probably survive on Mars as well.

For that reason, microbiologists in Turkey have surveyed the array of species that inhabit the Acigol, Salda and Yarisli lakes. They’re hopeful that studying some of them will yield useful insights into the kinds of biology that could help microbes exist on Mars or other potentially habitable planets and moons.

We are the people of Turkey, want Salda Lake to be World Heritage.

Please listen to our voice UNESCO ; Let's protect Salda from damage.
