Lakes: In terms of numbers of lakes, the Eastern Anatolia region is the richest. It contains Turkey's largest, Lake Van (3713 sq.km.). There are also many lakes in west Tourus Mountains area; the Beyşehir and Eğridir lakes. Important lakes are; the second largest lake in Turkey, Tuzgölü, Burdur, Sapanca, Iznik, Ulubat, Manyas (bird sanctuary), Akşehir, and Eber. As a result of the construction of dams during the past thirty years, several large dam lakes have come into existence in the Eastern Anatolia such as, Keban, Karakaya, and Atatürk
Dalyan is a very popular small town not spoiled by buildings. The wonderful 7 kilometers sandy Iztuzu Beach, which is accessible by a 45 minutes boat trip, is one of the last nesting areas for the Caretta caretta, Sea Turtles. Between May and September, the female turtles come to the beach to lay their eggs, to keep check on them from time to time and finally to take their babies to the sea. A 15 minutes' boat trip will take you to the sulfur bath which is a different experience for many people visiting the city. The mud containing sulfur and other elements is said to be good for skin conditions and makes you feel refreshed and revitalized. Also there is a small spa where you can just relax. Caunos, the ancient city near modern Dalyan, was founded around the 9th century BC. Once it was a Mediterranean city port, but over the centuries the silt from the Dalyan River choked the harbor and today the town lies several kilometers from the sea. Caunos is famous for its rock-cut tombs. These were graves for the kings and important people of the city. Since the paganist people of the area believed in resurrection, they put lots of food, money, jewelry and other valuable items in holes at the entrance of the tombs, but because of grave robbers nothing is now left today.
Il viaggio sia in Turchia che in Giordania è andato molto bene, e come ho un attimo vi voglio mandare un commento particolare sugli alberghi e sui piccoli inconvenienti da migliorare. Voi mandatemi una vostra pubblicità dettagliata che io la giro ad un mio amico che ha un'agenzia di viaggi, ma non ha nessun contatto con agenzie locali in Turchia e in Giordania. La guida Rasim Korkmaz è stato perfetto così come l'autista e il pulmino.
Vi riscriverò appena posso,un caro saluto.
