Egirdir travelogue picture
A beautiful lake in the mountains of western Turkey. The town of Egirdir sits on a peninsula that juts into the lake, so it is almost imposible not to have a room with a beautiful view of the lake and the mountains that hem her in.

Favourite spots:

On top of the mountain that overlooks the lake and nearby valley. I was there in October and the air was cool, crisp, and perfect for a long walk.

What's really great:

A small boat cruise, it was less than spectacular. It lasted only an hour and a half hour before some the passengers started complaining of seasickness and we stopped along the shore and had lunch.

Sights:

The beautiful shimmering blue lake is the reason for coming here and maybe a little hiking in the mountains. The town has housing which is typical of western Turkey.

Accommodations:

I stayed at Pension Lale (2001 prices) for $6.50 single room half board. The first night we had all you can eat crayfish, which they called lobster. It was great, but no seasoning. I had a room with a view over the marina.

Restaurants:
I ate at my pension which seems to be the norm here. There are some tourist priced restuarants and a few small groceries stores in town.

I loved to read about Egerdir. We spent there some happy days way back in 1989. We were in Cetin Pansyon near the market and old fort, or something like it. Is Lale in the town itself or on the island? In the old days the 'islanders' would rip you off. We once went there for dinner and got a minute portion for which we had to pay full price. Did you go to the beach? It is quite a walk, but worth it. In one of you picture I seem to recognize the hospital for broken bones, a very reasuring thought, we found as we had been climbing the hill and some of the tracks were slippery and steep, but the view was wonderful.
