(Persia Digest) - Mamraz Lake in Mazandaran Province is one of the most beautiful and untouched places in the northern parts of the country. It is known as “The Ghosts Lake” for its dried-up trees on the water’s surface and its ghastly appearance.
Mamraz Lake has a surface area of 40 hectares and is located 45 kilometers north of Nowshahr toward Nur, in Salah-e-Din Kola, with a length of about 700 and a width of 300 meters.
The pristine atmosphere around the lake is accompanied with the fog and the sound of wild animals most days. This, coupled with the view of the dried up tree trunks which the locals call dead trees, is the origin of the nickname “The Ghosts Lake”.
The lake is a historical, unique natural phenomenon that was registered as a national heritage last year under number 402 in order to preserve the animal and plant species.
