Isparta exists in a land of fragrant roses and rose products and beautiful lakes of peaceful waters, one of the prettiest cities in the Mediterranean region. Around 45% of Isparta consists of high plateaus. There are also many impressive caves around Isparta. If you go to Kirazlidere or the environs of Sidre, you may view this lovely site with a bird’s eye. Here is the Egirdir Lake which is one of the most fascinating lakes of Turkey, extending calmly along wide forests covering the foot of the mountains behind. It is an excellent site for relaxing, while it also offers opportunities for different sports such as climbing and fishing. You can try local fish together with mezes in the restaurants by the lake. Some of other picnicking sites are Golcuk Lake (13 kilometers southwest from Isparta), Ayazma, Milas, Caravanserai, Altinkum Beach, Pinarpazari, Camyol, Kovada National Park and Lake, and Kasnak Forest, famous for various kinds of butterflies and its fauna.
