The crater lakes are majestic, unique and mysterious.

Patio (pink) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
These combine characteristics of large miniature roses and small floribundas which results in the classification of "patio roses". They produce usually composed bouquets for 3-11 simple to double flowers, which bloom in summer-autumn.

A couple of different things can cause the formation of a lake in a crater, for example a meteorite or a human explosion. But more commonly, lake craters are due to volcanic activity. After a crater is formed, rain, groundwater circulation, or melted ice fills the crater with water, creating a crater lake.

Lakes of craters that cover volcanic openings they are also known as volcanic lakes. Volcanic lakes are unique because they can include greenish-colored waters that are very acidic, inflated with volcanic gases. Volcanic lakes that cover old or inactive volcanoes have fresh water that is incredibly clear. Here are 15 of the most unbelievably beautiful crater lakes in the world.

Mount Mazama Volcanic Lake, Oregon United States One of the most well-known volcanic lakes is located in Oregon, it is actually the deepest lake in the United States with a depth of 1949 feet! Rain and snow are completely responsible for filling this gap, making it a clear source of fresh water. Albertine Rift volcanic lake, Africa

Volcanic explosions are responsible for creating a series of crater lakes in the area. Around these protected lakes are some of the highest mountains in Africa.

Mount Pinabuto-Luzon volcanic lake, Philippines

In 1991 it was the last time that the Pinabuto volcano entered Erupting, marking the second largest volcanic eruption of the 20th century. Inactive for over 400 years, Pinabuto was largely unknown until the day of its explosion. Although, a much larger eruption 35,000 years ago is believed responsible for the volcanic lake.

Quilotoa volcanic lake, Ecuador

On the border of China and North Korea is located this beautiful volcanic lake that hides gives the opening to the volcano Baekdu Mountain. The lake was first created due to a volcanic explosion, and now has on average, around 699 meters deep. If you visit the place from October to mid June, the lake becomes ice.

Licancabur Lake, Chile

The symmetrical nature of this volcano causes a great fascination. It is located on the border of Chile and Bolivia and although the volcanic lake is in Chilean territory, some parts of the volcano do not belong to either country. At 3,281 meters in depth, Licancabur Lake is covered with a layer of ice for most of the year.

Main volcanic lake in Vulcan Point, Taal Volcano -Luzon Philippines

Known as One of the most picturesque places in the Philippines, this volcanic lake is located 31 miles from Manila. In the center of the crater, a large rock peak protrudes on the surface, which was once the bottom of the crater but has now risen to the surface of the water. The main volcanic lake at Vulcan Point is 1.2 kilometers wide and includes the largest island in the entire center.

Volcanic Lake, Mount Katmai, Alaska - United States

In 1912 the Novarupta eruption caused the formation of this volcanic lake in Alaska.

Viti geothermal lake, Askja - Iceland

In the central mountains of Iceland lies this incredible volcanic lake. The name Askja is in reference to the boilers that are found around the slopes of the nearby mountains. A large lake called Oskjuvatn was formed from a large eruption in 1875 and today fills many of the small craters in the area. As the second deepest lake in Iceland, the lake and the craters that surround it are frozen for most of the year.

Kerid volcanic lake - Iceland

This crater is located in the dense tropical forests of Cambodia. 4,000 years ago a violent volcano created this deep lake of 157 meters which has very clean and clear water.

Deriba volcanic lake, Jebel Marra - Durfur, Sudan

The volcano Jebel Marra exploded nearly 3,500 years ago to form this beautiful volcanic lake in southern Sudan. The volcano below the crater is considered inactive but has not been extinguished. This means that it could explode again at any time.

Mount Ruapehu Volcanic Lake, New Zealand Ruapehu is known as one of the most active (and largest) volcanoes in the world. world. The deepest volcanic lake is at the center of the 3 main peaks and is filled with water between each eruption. Okama volcanic lake, Mount Zao - Honshu, Japan

There are a number of active volcanoes in the northern Honshū region. The central volcano includes lava domes and a cone of bark, here rests Okama volcanic lake. As this volcanic lake changes color with the weather, it has earned the nickname "Five Color Pond" or "Lake of Five Colors". A volcanic eruption in 1720 is responsible for its current depth of 200 feet, which attracts many tourists.
