Day 7 - Find Stillness in a Pink Panorama

Immerse yourself in the salt of the earth with a visit to Lake Tuz, or Tuz Golu in Turkish, Turkey’s expansive salt lake. The saline content of the water gives it a beautiful pink color and the sky’s reflection on the water illuminates a glittering calmness, perfect for a tranquil half-day excursion.
