Kliluk

By the rising temperature of the sun the sea water begun to evaporate to leave a group of circles behind which shows the lake minerals in a majestic gradients as it contains the highest level of MAGNESIUM, PHOSPHAT, SULFUR AND CALCIUM to become one of the oldest health spas in the world used by red Indians to cure the long termed diseases it was mentioned in their legends that two tribes during the war made a treaty to take injured soldiers to it



In the hot sun of summer, the water of Spotted Lake (located in British Columbia and Washington) evaporates and crystallizes the minerals, forming many white-rimmed circles: shallow pools that reflect the mineral content of the water in shades of blues and greens.

It contains one of the worlds highest concentrations of minerals: magnesium sulphate (Epsom salts), calcium and sodium sulphates, plus eight other minerals and traces of four more, including silver and titanium. 

The Indians soaked away aches and ailments in the healing mud and waters. One story cites a truce in a battle to allow both warring tribes to tend to their wounded in the Spotted Lake, "Kliluk".



Legends of “Kliluk, the Spotted Lake” are woven into the Native Indian heritage of the Okanagan Valley.  The Indians soaked away aches and ailments in the healing mud and waters.  One story cites a truce in a battle to allow both warring tribes to tend to their wounded in the Spotted Lake, “Kliluk”. It is simply amazing and beautiful.

Spotted Lake is visible from the road, 8.8 kms (5.5 miles) west of Osoyoos on Hwy. 3 ….a rare and unique natural phenomenon covering 15.2 hectares (38 acres). It contains one of the worlds highest  concentrations of minerals: magnesium sulphate (Epsom salts), calcium and sodium sulphates, plus eight other minerals and traces of four more, including silver and titanium.  



The therapeutic value of Spotted Lake has always proved interesting, however other uses were found for the minerals.  During WWI, Chinese labourers were employed skimming the salts from the surface of  the lake.  The product was then shipped to Eastern American munitions factories.

Yield is said to have reached a ton per day. In the hot sun of summer, the water of Spotted Lake evaporates and crystallizes the minerals, forming many white-rimmed circles: shallow pools that reflect the mineral content of the water in shades of blues and greens.
