Lake Van (East Anatolia, Turkey), Lake Urmia (NW Iran) and Lake Sevan (Armenia)
To the right of Lake Van is Iran’s Lake Urmia. Like Lake Van, Lake Urmia receives water from the surrounding mountains, but has no outlet. Lake Urmia is shallow, and sediment colors its waters turquoise compared to the deep black of Lake Van. North of both lakes is Armenia’s Lake Sevana”.
