Breathtaking lakes around the world

Posted by Anita Froneman on 28 May 2020

There is something refreshing, soothing and reviving about a body of water. A lake is a still-standing natural water pool surrounded by land. It differs from a river in that it is stagnant, where a river is flowing. It also differs from a dam or pond in that it is completely formed by nature, not man-made.

Around the world, many spectacular lakes have provided unforgettable family vacations, camping trips, romantic getaways and loads of fun activities like kayaking, skiing, diving and fishing.

We take a look at some of the world’s most beautiful lakes:
