Lake Van (Turkish: Van Gölü) is the largest lake in Türkiye. It lies in the far east of Anatolia in the provinces of Van and Bitlis. It is a saline soda lake, receiving water from many small streams that descend from the surrounding mountains. Lake Van is one of the world's few endorheic lakes (a lake having no outlet) of size greater than 3,000 square kilometres and has 38% of the country's surface water.
