Ten majestic lakes that reveal how wonderful our world is
Moraine is a glacial lake in
Banff National Park in Canada. Glaciers feed the lake, so its maximum depth
occurs in June. The light refraction at the lake’s stony floor imparts a
magnificent blue colour to the water. Moraine is one of the most photographed
spots in Canada, and it’s not hard to see why — it looks like a true paradise.
Crater Lake, Oregon, USA

Crater Lake is located in the
crater of an extinct volcano, Mount Mazama, which was last active 7,000 years
ago. The main point of interest at the lake is Wizard Island, which was dubbed
the Phantom Ship because of its appearance. In the dark, it looks like a ship
at sea. Also in Crater Lake there’s a huge log called ’’the old man of the lake.’’
It has vertically drifted in the lake for more than 100 years, and they say
that it brings luck to anyone who sees it.
Abraham Lake, Canada

Abraham Lake is an artificial
lake that was created during the construction of a dam in the 1970s. The
unusual patterns which appear in the thick ice when it freezes attract many
tourists and photographers. The secret of this miracle is that the methane
bubbles that are produced by the plants of the lake rise up from the bottom and
thicken at a different depth, creating this amazing visual effect.
Lake Hiller, Australia

Pink Lake Hiller is located on
Middle Island in Western Australia. A narrow strip of sand dunes detaches it
from the ocean, and it has the shape of an oval, with evergreen eucalyptuses
growing all around it. The origin of the lake’s pink colour is still a riddle.
While scientists continue to solve it, tourists all over the world admire this
astonishing natural wonder.

Melissani is the name of both
a cave and a lake that are situated on the eastern coast of the Greek island
Kefalonia. The cave’s arch fell in several thousand years ago, which created a
peculiar well of an uneven shape in the middle. The subterranean kingdom is
illuminated with beams of sunlight that come through the hole and make the
water a light-blue colour. Tourists love this romantic place.

Ten majestic lakes that reveal how wonderful our world is 
The world’s biggest evaporated
lake is in Bolivia. The salt pan was formed when the lake it was originated
from was cut off from all supply springs. The water evaporated, and the plain
got covered with a thick layer of salt. The salt pan is popular not because of
the amount of salt, but because of the rain effect in this place. Overflowing
on the surface, the water creates an incredibly thin and big ’’mirror.’’ They
say that at this time it is impossible to say where the earth ends and the sky
begins. It’s an enchanting sight!
Lake Baikal, Russia

the imagination. The water is crystal clear and the nature of the region is
unique in the combination of different plant types. Lake Baikal, the Siberian
treasure, is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
