Our path fell to Burdur and we camped on Lake Salda. Lake Salda, known as the Maldives of Turkey, located in the province of Yesilova in Burdur, is known as the lake that grows with turquoise color. It is located 76 kilometers from the center of Burdur to the town of Yeşilova and 4 kilometers from the lake of Salda from the district of Yeşilova.
In order to go to the lake, we had to hitchhike from Isparta towards Burdur with our friend Omer Faruk and then hitchhiked to the vehicles going towards Yeşilova to reach the lake of Salda. You can easily reach Lake Salda from Denizli, Burdur or Isparta.
HOW TO GO TO SALDA LAKE?
When you reach the private road from Burdur, you can arrive in approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes by using the 761 kilometer road on the Kiraatli Road and the D330 on the Salda Lake in Yeşilova. You can also get to Yeşilova from Burdur Otogar for 10 TL by taking Yeşilova minibuses. If you ask the minibus drivers, they will leave you as far as Lake Salda.

Where should I camp in SALDA LAKE?
You can camp at Lake Salda on public beaches, municipal campsites and other campsites. But we liked the serenity, so we camped in the Maldives region just across the section called the small islands. We recommend you to camp in this area.
We learned that building a camping tent is prohibited in the Salda Lake Nature Park. It is possible to encounter tiny water snakes in almost all parts of Lake Salda. We learned that water snakes are non-toxic and can enter the water. In the photo below we see the wooden wall we made to protect from the wind. The trees we use on the wall are the pine trees we find on the ground.
