Crater lakes are a weird natural phenomenon. As the name pretty much suggests, it’s a crater that has, over the course of many years, formed into a lake and filled up with water. Not only is it a rare thing (since it requires an asteroid to hit the Earth or a volcano to erupt), it’s also gorgeous to look at.
If you ever want to go on a crater lake hiking trip, take a look at the lakes we’ve got lined up for you below. They’ll make any trip worth doing and they’ll give you some unique pictures to show your family and friends.
Heaven Lake, North Korea
If this is what Heaven looks like, I might actually start trying to be a better person. Gorgeous!
Mount Katmai Crater Lake, Alaska
This amazing crater lake on the snowy mountain tops looks like a winter wonderland. It was formed in 1912 during the Novarupta eruption.
Quilotoa Crater Lake, Ecuador
This crater lake in the Andes has water that has turned greenish because of the minerals in the water. The crater is 3 km wide and just looks amazing in between all those mountain tops.
