Bakhtegan

(bäkhtĕgän`), salt lake, c.60 mi (100 km) long, in the Zagros Mts., S Iran; fed by the Kor River. The town of Neyriz was once on its shores, but because of the lake's shrinkage it is now to the southeast. Ancient accounts of the region do not refer to the lake, suggesting that it is of relatively recent origin. The lake is also called Neyriz.
