This lake is also called Pelle Azni because of the nearby village, Azni.[4] The best way for going the lake is through Azni village, which has a flat way to the lake. The lake has a 70 km distance from Sari and located in Sari-Semnan road. (About two hour way from Semnan)[5] The lake is 1200 m higher than sea level.[6]

This lake is the main source of water for paddy fields of near villages like Azni, Mazarostaq, Konta, Didu and Zalam.[4] However no river water comes to the lake, rain full fills the lake.[7]

In recent years, fish farming has developed in the lake.

Plenty of various trees, including carpinus betulus, oak, ulmus glabra and tilia, surrounded the lake.[8]
