Eymir lake is situated in Middle East Technical University property, so visitor entry may be restricted. A very good place to jogging, walking or biking on the trail around the lake.

To those coming from rich with nature countries/cities - you might be disappointed. However, considering Ankara, an almost entirely concrete city, this is truly a hidden gem, how one reviewer called it. Free entrance This lake is surrounded by what feels real trees (in contrast...More
