a lake in southwestern Turkey, in the northwest spurs of the Taurus Mountains; situated in an intermontane basin at an elevation of 924 m. Lake Eğridir has a length of approximately 50 km and an area of approximately 320 sq km. The shores of the south side of the lake are steep, but those on the north side, around the isolated reach known as Hoyran, slope gently. The Eğridir is a freshwater lake, although there is no surface runoff. It is thought that water drains from the lake through karst cavities underground.
