Nature & Lakes
When we talk about Belsh and its nature, we relate to the nature of the Dumre Plateau. Belsh is part of a mixed nature with fertile fields, lakes and hills located within the territory of Dumre. Belshi itself lies on the side of a lake with the same name and backed by a mountain range covered with pine trees.
The largest area of the plateau is occupied by agricultural fields spread around the 84 lakes of Dumre. Lakes are a special characteristic nature of the area around which most of the vegetation and fauna come to life. While water lilies are one of the many beauties of the lakes.
