Zarivar Lake

Zarivar Lake

Located in Marivan, Kurdistan Province, Zarivar is Iran’s biggest freshwater wetland, approximately 5 Kilometers long, 1.6 Kilometers wide and 5.5 meters deep. The name of the lake is the changed form of a Kurdish phrase meaning “watered from side and floor”, referring to the source of water in the lake. Zarivar is surrounded by Iranian oak trees. There are 2 Hotels and some bungalows provided for visitors, and many pleasure boats that fill the lake in the summer, the lake is frozen in the winter and therefore a more peaceful visit to the area is possible.
