Water Body · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Masazir Lake is a salt lake in the outskirts of Baku whose water is slightly pink in colour - one of the few such lakes in the world. The lake is used for industrial-scale salt extraction so there is little for tourists to do here, though lovers of off-the-beaten-track places may wish to come and snap a photograph.

  • one of my dream place to be
  • It looks pink only in certain angles and certain times
  • Not as pink as some pictures. It is most probably getting pink due to the content of salt during mining. So it's probably npt always pinkish. When we went there it's more brownish than pink. And not sure also, where the particular location around this big lake, to see the scenery of real pink colour as some photos posted shown. Tough to go there with public bus. Need 2 busses each way 1.5hr journey time allow more for traffict congestion. One bus with baku card, the other need to pay with coins 0.25manat.
