The lagoons are the magical natural treasures which have a huge impact on weather and environment. Lipar is one of those important lagoons in Chabahar and is called the bride of Chabahar.  

It is considered as one of the saltiest lagoons worldwide and is about 10 hectares.   “Lip” means the ashes and “Ar” means water on the other hand in Baluchi language “Lipar” means somewhere the river meets the sea.

This is an untouched and simple lagoon but at the same time glorious and magnificent. The local people usually collect salt from the lake.

The reason of the fame of Lipar is its nice pink color which is because of the existence of especial bacteria living there. Other plants which live there are Oak, Nettles, Gaz, Mesquites, Locusts and Phragmites australis.
