Lake Abant is an amazing natural beauty in the province of Bolu and is one of Turkey’s most popular destinations for local and foreign tourists all year around. It is 34 kilometers (21 miles) southwest of the city, situated at an altitude of 1325 meters. It’s a tectonic lake fed by underground waters and is about 45 meters deep. The lake is a magnificent one with water lilies spread over, and the deep green forest surrounding it. It’s under protection as a natural conservation area. There are good quality accommodation establishments around the lake which deserve spending some time. It freezes almost entirely during the coldest winter months where people can walk on it around the shores.
