Uzungöl (Long Lake) is a beautiful body of fresh water, 99 kilometers long, near Trabzon. Located in a valley between high mountains, the area is most famous for its spectacular natural scenery. With its lakeside mosque and forested mountains that recall Switzerland, Uzungöl is idyllic in every sense of the word. Due to the climate, fog is very common, with the surrounding greenery of the mountain forests serving as backdrop. Uzungöl is a perfect place to experience the peace, tranquility, and freshness of the natural world. Once you have soaked up sufficient peace and quiet, Uzungöl also serves as an excellent base for hikes in the Soğanlı Mountains and to the tiny lakes around Demirkapı in the Haldizen Mountains.
