Beyşehir is a lake in Turkey. We continue to hitchhiking. Part 6

Time passed and it was time to move on to the side Cappadocia (Göreme). We decided to go through Lake Beysehir (Beysehir Golu) to save time.

Lake Beysehir - one of the largest freshwaterlakes in Turkey. Open sources report that eco-tourism is developing here. One thing is clear for sure - here you can walk along interesting routes to the mountains and fish, as well as swim to the islands where the ruins of Byzantine monasteries are located. There is also such a lake in Turkey as Tuz Golu - salty and partially dried, but there simply wasn’t enough time to get there.

So. On dolmushi from Side via Manavgat got to the highway leadinginland, and began to stop. Here it began, communication in Turkish. We have in our hands a piece of paper with written words, a phrase book, and a lingua on the phone. Approximately 2-3 phrases in half an hour we mastered. And as luck would have it, all the Turks wanted to talk, despite the fact that the conversation was very one-sided. It is good that at least they drove without any problems. We said what and where we needed them, they answered with a long monologue, and eventually put us in the car.

One of the drivers brought us to the cafe and offeredtea. And apparently after seeing how we look at his salad, I ordered them too. It is good that the word vegetarian (vegetarians) is international and we said it in advance, otherwise it would be inconvenient to refuse any meat dish.

The map of Turkey deceived us, and it turned out that wenot going there. The matter in the evening and decided to go by bus, so our hospitable driver drove us to the city of Seydisehir (Bus Station). Surprisingly, he could have just landed us at the entrance to the city, since he did not need to go there. And he not only drove, but also spent about 20 minutes searching around the city, where this bus station is located. An hour later we were in the city of Beysehir (Beysehir), near the lake of the same name. In the bus, by the way, there were televisions on which, besides television programs, the image from the camera was broadcast.

And the question before us was extraordinary. We are in an unfamiliar city, it is already getting dark, and we need to find a place under the tent. It is desirable on the shore of the lake, which is unknown where.

Half an hour later we found the lake. That was just the trouble. Questions to local, they say, where is your free beach here, caused bewilderment. In the park, my companion refused to set up a tent. In Russia, of course, this does not come to mind, and here you start to think, because of the good attitude towards foreigners. Camping we did not like the price of 25 lire (500r) per night from the tent. Therefore, having left the city from the other side, we found the same place. Not quite wild, not far from the road, and apparently chosen by fishermen, but there was no choice.

In the morning we saw the beauty of the nature of these places. A large lake with grassy shores and mountains with snowy peaks on the horizon.

If you are in these parts, it makes sense to move away from the city and look for a place for a tent or camping. Sure there is one. The road goes long enough along the lake.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
