Tree of Life Festival  Event Location:

Karagöl Lake resort located apx. an hour drive from Izmir Adnan Menderes Airport.most of the drive is up the wild mountains which at times will remind you of mother india.the location is surrounded with wild nature,mustang horses,and clean mineral water springs which are also used in the location itself.

Karagöl lake is 3500 square meters in surface water. this lake has occurred as a result of tectonic movements. Small, heart shaped, and full of mystical creatures.

The Tree of life festival has full legal permissions from all government offices-all we need is to keep this wild nature safe so we kindly ask you to keep it clean and to avoid fires at all times!

Karagol(the black lake) is also very famous in the Greek mythology for the Tale of Tantalus..and named also “lake of Tantalus.”

Story of Tantalus:

The tantalisation of Tantalus

Tantalus is known for having been welcomed to Zeus’ table in Olympus. There he stole nectar and ambrosia, brought them back to his people, and revealed the secrets of the gods. He also offered up his son, Pelops as a sacrifice to the gods, an archetypal story of shamanic initiation in which he cut Pelops up, boiled him, and served him up as food for the gods…GEEZ!
