13 Unique Places With Crystal Clear Water SUBSCRIBE: https://youtu.be/xsXMP6qQv-w : When you think of crystal clear waters, the pictures that normally come to mind are of the Maldives, some Caribbean or Mediterranean islands with endless beaches. Now these other places can, indeed, boast super clean waters, but there are less expected locations where you can see through the water down to the bottom.
Have you ever visited Crater Lake National Park in Oregon? It was formed 7,700 years ago when the volcano, Mount Mazama, collapsed. It’s the deepest lake in the United States and it’s spotlessly blue. By the way, there’s a fun sight inside the lake – the so-called “Old Man of the Lake” that’s a vertically floating hemlock, first recorded in 1896.

– On a sunny day, the sea green waters of Melissani Lake are filled with dazzling light. It used to be completely underground, but thanks to an earthquake, it was opened up and is now 60 feet below the surface of the ground.
– Crater Lake is the true gem of Crater Lake National Park in Oregon. It was formed 7,700 years ago when the volcano, Mount Mazama, collapsed. It’s the deepest lake in the United States.
– Montana’s Flathead Lake is the largest freshwater lake in the western part of the country. It’s home to many types of fish: yellow perch, trout, whitefish, sturgeon, and what not.
– Now you’ve seen crystal clear lakes, but can you imagine a multi-colored one? It’s real, and it’s located in the Jiuzhaigou Nature Reserve that’s part of the Minshan mountain range in China.
– Another mountain lake, it’s at its deepest in the summer time, reaching 39 ft because it feeds from snowmelt. Grüner See used to be popular with divers, and
– Peyto Lake is a must see for tourists hiking in Banff National Park, in the Rocky Mountains. When you look at it from above, it seems unnatural because of its bright, somewhat neon turquoise color.
– Unlike most rivers you know, Blue River doesn’t have a permanent streambed – it looks different and new every year. With global warming, the melting has become more active in the past years.
– Lake Baikal is the deepest and oldest lake in the world, with 20% of all fresh water on the planet and 25 million years of age. The water here is so clean and clear, you can see to a depth of 130 ft inside the lake.
– It’s basically impossible to tell the sky from the ground when you’re looking at Lake Mashū on Japan’s Hokkaido Island. When its transparency was measured in 1931, it even beat Lake Baikal, with a result of 136 feet.
– Lake McKenzie is situated on Fraser Island in Queensland, the largest sand island in the world. McKenzie is a perched lake filled with fresh rainwater that’s 320 feet above the ground.
– Hoh Rainforest is one of the Seven Wonders of Washington State. It’s located on the Olympic Peninsula and follows the Hoh River. The river flows out of a glacier on Mount Olympus.
– Maranhenses means “bedsheets” in Portuguese, and the place does look covered with smooth white bed sheets of sand. During the rainy season, mainly between January and June, the dunes get filled up with clear water and turn into a fantastic pattern of beautiful lagoons that are perfect for swimming.
– New Zealand’s Nelson Lakes National Park is home to the clearest lake in the world. The Māori believe this place to be sacred, and no one is allowed to swim in it or even enter it.
