Lovely lakes of India!

The incredible India’s as we say it, has it all! From high ranged mountains to low lying sea slopes. From dry sandy desserts to calm, staying lakes. India has got a diversity in it’s geographic interiors too. While we have learnt enough of India’s great states to be checked while visited here, let’s today know about those lovely lakes india so proudly flaunt on its map that’s also an important factor effecting it’s diversified climate too.

Dal lake

The most beautiful lake of India. One of the most beautiful lakes in the world is literally a city on water! The innumerable water boats on this beautiful, clean lake and an incredible village life active on this lake makes it more intriguing. The amazing climate of Jammu and Kashmir makes the lake more favourable. During winter, there’s actually a layer of ice formed on the lake.

Vembanad lake

The first and foremost is the green algae-rich Vembanad lake 15km from Kottayam is the longest lake in India. This lake is actually divided into 2 halves by a saltwater barrier and you can see the difference between the brackish and fresh water. Catch three districts as you cruise on this incredibly calm and long lake.

Lonar lake

The mysterious lake situated at Maharashtra have put experts from NASA on thoughts about the incredibility of this lake. It’s one of the most well kept secret, the Lonar Lake, came in to existance after a meteor hitting earth over 52,000 years ago. The lake is both alkaline and saline & micro-organisms which are rarely found anywhere else on earth.

Chandra Taal lake

The Chandra Tal Lake is also famous as the ‘Lake of the Moon.’ The name comes from the crescent shape of the lake. It looks dashingly amazing in the backdrop of arid mountain ranges that surround it on all the sides. During winters, the surrounding mountain ranges are draped in a sheet of white snow, the lake also freezes completely.

Tsomgo lake

The captivating beauty near Gangtok is an amazingly beautiful lake at this place. A glacial lake in Sikkim is one of the few and awesome high altitude lakes in India. The lake is filled with water of melting snow coming from the surrounding mountains. It’s a one kilometer long oval shaped lake.

These lovely lakes mark a great spot of excellence in India and each of them being better than other makes it a must visit place for spectators.

  3. What beautiful lakes! I moved from a land of 10,000 lakes (you were never more than 3km from one) to an island in the Pacific, and now I live in the desert. I miss seeing the blue of water and feeling the beautiful breezes. You are blessed to live in such a wonderful country.

    I would like to visit some of these lakes. Vembanad lake is very close to my place but I have not visited it even once in spite of living in Kerala for 13 years. Lovely descriptions.

    Reading about Lakes in your description was most soothing, as the lakes themselves. Along with some popular ones, you have written about some off-best ones too! That was enriching and refreshing! Great post Saba !!
