Lake Salda is often included in the Turkish Lakes Region that extends across inner western to southern Anatolia, especially Isparta Province and Afyonkarahisar Province, although Lake Salda is geographically separate from the larger lakes, which are more to the east and, being a crater lake, is morphologically different from these tectonic lakes.
The lake area covers 4,370 hectares, and its depth reaches 196 meters, making it one of the deeper lakes in Turkey, if not the deepest. The lake sedimentary records show high-resolution climate changes that are related to solar variability during the last millennium.
The lake is a popular excursion spot for people across the region or from beyond, more so due to the hydromagnesite mineral found in its coastal waters, which is believed to offer remedies for certain dermatological diseases. The shorelines, surrounded by black pine forests, are also popular among hunters, the game, and the fowl available including quails, hares, foxes, boars, and wild ducks, aside from the lake’s fish. White sandy beaches, limpid water, and seven crystal-white islets within the lake complete the scenery. At the end of the tour, we drive you back to your hotel where you can enjoy the thermal baths.

The cave entrance of Kaklık Mağarası (Kaklik Cave) is a huge doline, between 11 m and 13 m in diameter and 10 m deep. This collapse of the roof of a part of the cave allows entering the cave. Inside are numerous rimstone pools, glimmering white and often compared to nearby Pamukkale. The cave is sometimes called Küçük Pamukkale (Small Pamukkale) or Mağara Pamukkale
Kaklik Cave has formed about 2.5 million years ago during the Pliocene Period by the solution through sulfurous thermal waters. This cave development based on or at least heavily influenced by the sulfur resulted in extraordinary speleothems. Today the springs are responsible for the formation of rimstone pools. The Kokarhamam Spring (Smelly Bath) produces sulfur-rich 24 °C thermal water and a characteristic smell of sulfur. The sulfur-rich water was used to cure skin diseases since antiquity, and also to irrigate the fields. It feeds a small reedy marsh. Then the water flows into the nearby cave and forms the pools.
