Liked : All areas are very clean, preserved, natural and kept well. Disliked : Dogs should be taken under control. Horse droppings smells worse.

First of all, i'd like to said Gomu Tur and their staff was very versed and they do their job perfectly. Abant Lake and the other lakes near of this lake was very impressive but note that ambagious. You dont forget to take your camera. Foods are also delicious and impressive. We enjoyed so much.

Lake Abant is a very beautiful lake located in the forests. Its perimeter is around 7 km. Highly recommended especially in spring and autumn. It would be good to have less people around to enjoy the tranquility. Best time for visit is weekdays.
