Green Arsenic Lake Mount Tarawera  New Zealand

Green Arsenic Lake

This is in Waiotapu, Rotorua, New Zealand. This lake really is that green! There are walking trails here to look at all the thermal activity. I was amazed to see the color of the lake when I turned. It is even brighter than this photograph! I learned that it contains a large amount of arsenic and all the minerals in the lake will dry up a human body very quickly. Some Maori women chose to end their lives by swimming into the lake.
