  • Unlike the rural structure of Konya Mediterranean vegetation plain region Beyşehir. The surrounding area is covered with high mountains and forests by creating this special Anatolian land opportunity to be useful. Stone bridge historic Lakeside walk and a cup of tea by the Lake in openness in an attempt. Situated on the edge of the Lake fisherman restaurant of the region's delicious carp can be eaten.
