Welcome to Bitlis, Budakli
Enjoy the hot springs in minus 20 degrees. Budakli village is 7 kilometers away from Guroymak district of Bitlis.
Since the buffaloes cannot leave the barns in the brutal winter season, they are taken to the hot springs every ten days to be cleaned by their owners.
Animal owners who take their buffaloes to the hot springs for cleaning also join them. The buffaloes that need mud and water in the summer months also need the hot spring in the winter.
Both animals and people use the hot springs for therapy. Seeing the buffaloes relax in the water attracts the attention of photographers from all over the world.
Photographers who come to this region photograph the buffaloes and contribute to the promotion of the region.
