3. Crater Lake, Southern Cascade Mountains, USA

Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the United States. The lake is still and waveless, like a mirror embedded in the surrounding mountains and forests.

It was turned into a national park in 1902. There are deer, bears, eagles, owls and other wild animals, and there are fish in the lake.

4. Lake Matheson, New Zealand

New Zealand's most iconic scenery, on a clear cloudless day, the lake will reflect the reflections of New Zealand's highest peaks, Aoraki (Mt Cook) and Mount Tasman. The lake is as beautiful as a silver mirror, and the scenery is unforgettable, as if it is a landscape painting, elegant and long-lasting. It takes 40 minutes to walk to the first viewing platform, and it only takes an hour and a half to circle around the lake.

5. Lake Tahoe, California and Nevada border, USA

Lake Tahoe is the largest and most beautiful alpine lake in North America. Generally, the color of the lake is clear blue, but Emerald Bay is different, which is dark green due to the excessive algae. Lake Tahoe and Emerald Bay were originally not connected. For thousands of years, the water between the two lakes shuttled and cut through the shore to make it part of Lake Tahoe. Because of its beautiful scenery, it is a place where many tourists take pictures.
