Ovan Lake is a small alpine lake in Alamut region of Alborz mountain range in the Iranian province Qazvin.

The only tributary that flows into the lake is a stream with the same name, Ovan, coming down from northern mounts. The north of the lake is also surrounded by three small villages, namely from east to west: Varbon, Ovan and Zar-abaad.

The lake is located in an altitude of 1,800 metres above sea level. The deepest section of the lake is 7.5 metres and extends over 70,000 square meters. Ovan Lake is suitable for fishing, swimming and riding boats in summer while in fall it hosts migratory birds and such species as swan, goose and duck. In winter, the lake can be used for sports such as skiing and ice skating while its surface becomes slippery with ice in winter.
