Gahar lake is situated in the Oshtoran Kooh Mountains. It famous among the tourist due to permanent sweet water. There are two lakes with 100 meters,divided in to lower and upper lakes. The lower lakes is larger than upper. Its a sandy lake that is best for the swimming.

Yes you are right ssteven! The Mehdi has shared a useful post for all tourists especially those who never visited this region. I have been visiting it almost three years ago. I had spent a great and unforgettable time. Its magical beauty gives peace and soothing effects to its visitors. I would love to visit it again in future. Have you ever been to Iran?

Malachi! I have visited the Gahar lake it is an ideal for the climbing, hiking and mountaineering. It is an ideal for the adventure lovers. But unfortunately there is no hotel in the nearby. You must select the nearest village for stay. I stay with my uncle's home which is close to the lake.
