15 World Beautiful Coloured Lakes and Rivers to Visit Before you Die

If we travel the world, we would realize that this earth has so many beautiful place to be seen. Thank to God who had create those awesome nature phenomenon. As the world contemplates its new murky, unappetising shade, we look to the lakes and rivers that are naturally colourful – but alas, totally unsuitable for diving. Here is 15 most beautiful coloured lakes and rivers in the world..

1. Lake Hillier, Australia

The water of this bubblegum pink pool – on Middle Island, off the south coast of Western Australia – doesn’t lose its colour, even when taken out of the lake.

2. Devil’s Bath Pool, New Zealand

As if its colour wasn’t off-putting enough, Devil’s Pool has a distinctly sulphurous whiff – so you won’t want to hang around for long. Sniff it out at the Wai-O-Tapu Wonderland in Rotorua.

3. Laguna Verde, Bolivia

The colour of this salt lake varies with the seasons, from tempting turquoise to a rather dingy jade. Mineral deposits – including arsenic – create the changeable hues. You’ll find it in Bolivia’s south-western Altiplano, close to the Chilean border.

4. Hells of Beppu, Japan

The hells – or thermal springs – are so hot that they’re used for cooking rather than bathing. There are steamy plunge pools for bathing nearby, should you fancy a (cooler but less colourful) dip.

5. Blue Lagoon, Iceland

Iceland’s most famous geothermal pool pulls in the crowds for its emerald hues – created by silica, algae and minerals in the water. It’s invigorating, Instagrammable, and very handy for Keflavik Airport – what’s not to love?

6. Chott el Djerid, Tunisia

In the extreme heat of the Sahara Desert, the bacteria in Chott el Djerid thrive. They turn the water all kinds of crazy hues – purple, pink and red are the most common colours.

7. Betsiboka River, Madagascar

Rusty red sediment gives Betsiboka its colour. After criss-crossing through mangroves, it deposits the silt in the sea.

8. Laguna Colorada, Bolivia

Algae and red sediment have turned this lake scarlet – and the resident flamingos add an extra dash of colour too.

9. Caño Cristales, Colombia

From July to November, this Colombian river is a technicolour treat: locals dub it the “Liquid Rainbow”. Endemic plantlife turns yellow, blue, green and red – making it look like the water is changing colour too.

10. Yellow River, China

This stretch of ochre water carries 1.6 billion tons of silt every year – and that’s what gives it its colour. It’s more spectacular when viewed from afar: the water looks muddy and murky up-close.

11. Quilotoa, Ecuador

Dissolved minerals have turned this Andean volcano lake green. The caldera was formed after an eruption 800 years ago.

12. Lake Retba, Senegal

The people that harvest salt in this lake use shea butter to protect their skin from the water’s high salt content. Incredibly, some fish have adapted to life in this hostile environment.

13. Grand Prismatic Spring, USA

One of the world’s largest hot pools, this rainbow watering hole in Yellowstone National Park is most vivid in the spring. Microorganisms give the water its colour, although the centre of the pool is so hot that it’s sterile.

14. Kelimutu, Indonesia

The three crater lakes of Kelimutu volcano are on the same peak, but they’re distinctly different colours. Locals believe that they are coloured by spirits.

15. Emerald Lakes, New Zealand

The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is one of New Zealand’s most popular day walks, through steaming volcanic landscapes and burbling hot springs. The Emerald Lakes make for a stunning picnic spot.
