The Lake of Ghosts (also called Mamrez) is located near Nowshahr, in the woods heights. The lake is surrounded by Alder and Hornbeam trees. This lake is a resident of different animal species.

The reason behind the scary name of this lake is the view of dead trees standing in the water in a silent foggy atmosphere; in which you can just hear the voices of birds and animals. The scenery of Mamrez Lake is so beautiful; same time it’s a great occasion for directing the new season of “the Resident Evil”! Unfortunately, the only reason behind such naming is the view and voices; there are no other superstitious beliefs about it.
