Someone has rightly said- "Time wasted at a lake is time well spent."
Although, it is impossible to check out all the 117 million lakes (Yes, yes that was a no-brainer), that cover almost four percent of the world's land surface, some of them simply stand out.
Here, we have listed five of the most beautiful lakes in the world.
Dead Sea, Jordan
This majestic body of deep blue water, located in the Jordan Rift Valley, is one of the world's saltiest water bodies.
In fact, slathering in the mud of the Dead Sea is considered by many as the ultimate spa treatment. They say that its mud has rejuvenating properties, and provides relief from skin ailments and arthritis.
Lake Como, Italy
Offering the best concoction of bustle and serenity, Lake Como, located in Italy's Lombardy region, is one of the most heavenly tourist spots on the planet.
Lined with lush gardens, and surrounded by pretty villages and snow-capped mountains, this lake is undoubtedly an epitome of beauty.
When you're there, visit the Villa Carlotta, or take a boat trip on the lake, or go hiking.
Lake Pichola, Rajasthan, India
An artificial fresh water lake situated in India's very own "City of Lakes" Udaipur in Rajasthan, the Pichola Lake, set amidst the Aravalli ranges, offers some of the most breathtaking sunset views, and amazing boat rides.
Additionally, the lake is surrounded by many mesmerizing temples, ghats, shopping locales, and other tourist attractions that are all worth a visit.
Lake Bratan, Bali, Indonesia
As you know, Bali is pretty popular for its volcanoes, beaches, waterfalls, lakes, and other beautiful works of nature.
However, one lesser-known tourist spot there is Lake Bratan- the second largest lake in Bali, located in the Bedugul area.
What's more? The enchanting Balinese Hindu Temple is located right in the middle of the beautiful lake.
Lake Hillier, Australia
Australia's famous vibrant pink color lake is a sight to behold.
Interestingly, the pink shade is permanent and does not alter even if the water is taken in a container. It is believed that the pink color is due to the presence of an organism, Dunaliella Salina.
So, what are you waiting for? Take out some time and visit one of these lovely lakes.
