A Sunken Forest In A Sea Of Turquoise   Kazakhstan

A Sunken Forest In A Sea Of Turquoise

Tucked in the corner of south-east Kazakhstan lies the mesmerising Lake Kaindy. Triggered by an earthquake in 1911, a landslide fell across the valley creating a natural dam. Now, the forest that once blanketed the area remains as ashen trunks piercing the turquoise blue pool.
A picturesque hiking trail runs through the forest along the western edge of the lake, where you'll find wild berries and flowers blossoming in season.
