Iran tourism: Lake turning pink

A “red tide” is overtaking the Maharlou Lake, in Iran’s southwest, rendering the scenery even more beautiful.

A “red tide” happens when water evaporates and becomes saltier, leading to the growth of algae known as algal bloom.

Maharlou Lake is located 25 kilometers to the southeast of Shiraz, the capital of Iran’s Fars Province. It is one of the key sources of edible and industrial salt for the province.

It is also regarded as a tourism attraction of Fars Province.
