Unique View of El Goli Lake

El GoliEl Goli has a beautiful and eye-catching pond. It features a small lake where visitors can take a boat or go for a walk and appreciate the view and take a souvenir photo, especially at sunset.

It is a small lake that has its water source in the Liqvan river which passes by a village called Chavan, where a small stream enters from the southeast side of El-Goli lake provides the water.

Water freezes in the lake during the winter and gives a different view of its surroundings. During that time, the fish cannot reach any part of the upper part of the water, and which results in their natural growth process slowing down.

The main attraction in this park during the spring and summer times is the beautiful flowers which can be seen in different parts of the park.

Presently, the yard and park behind the pool are decorated with hundreds of colorful tulip flowers.
