Melissani Lake


Melissani is not only the name of the lake, it is the name of cave as well.

Both the lake and the cave are situated on the eastern coast of Kefalonia, a Greek island. The arch of the cave fell in thousands of years ago, creating a peculiar uneven shape in the middle.

The area is illuminated by beams of sunlight which filter in through the hole, transforming the water to a light blue hue.

Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia


Salar de Uyuni is the world’s biggest evaporated lake. This salt pan was created when it was cut off from the lake that was its source. The water then evaporated, leaving the plain covered with a thick layer of salt.

This place is because of the rain effect there. The water overflowing on the surface creates the illusion of a very big mirror, making it difficult to tell where land ends and where the sky begins. 

4. Lake Baikal, Russia:
