Aerial images of Lake Eber, one of the biggest lakes in Turkey and situated inside the boundaries of Afyonkarahisar Bolvadin, revealed the lake’s peculiar beauty as well as bringing the islets to the fore. The lake, which is inside Bolvadin’s limits, had an increase in water level following a rainy season.
Lake Eber, which has recently made headlines owing to drought and cane fires, is starting to restore its former grandeur thanks to the spring rains.
When puddles began to form after the rains in some of the lake’s dry points, and the drone was photographed from above, the lake’s water borders were also evidently increased. The rise in water level brought into sharp focus the islets of the lake. The ones who were happy about this situation in the lake, where boats started to be exploited, were the cane gatherers.
Kadir Ateş, the Guide and Guide of Lake Eber, noted that the lake’s water level had climbed to its greatest level in the previous three years as a result of this year’s abundant rainfall.
Where there was none the prior years, there is up to half a metre of water this year. We can infer a 25–30% water rise in the lake. As a result, the lake’s animal and plant life population increases.
