In addition to alpine skiing, going to the snow-capped mountains to meditate and watch the lake is also a different kind of enjoyment. Most of the alpine lake groups are caused by the collapse of tectonic activities and glaciers. Because of the strong crustal activity, surface faults are prone to form valleys and depressions, coupled with the erosion of glaciers and the melting of glaciers all year round, forming alpine lakes.
1. Braies Lake
At first glance, this lake looks a lot like Lake Louise in the Canadian Rockies. But it is in Italy. Lake Braies, the most beautiful lake in the Italian Dolomites, is a very niche attraction. The surface of the lake is sometimes green and sometimes blue, crystal clear and peaceful. This lake is like a pool of water specially designed for heaven and man to bathe, and its holiness does not belong to the mortal world. The Dolomites, like some other cities in Italy, have vineyards and some estates, but there is a fairytale lake in the Dolomites. Although Lake Bray is cold all year round, in the summer it is just as great to plunge directly into the cool waters from a cliff above 5,000 feet above sea level.
2. Lake Tekapo
Winter in the northern hemisphere is summer in New Zealand. At this time, Lake Tekapo was so beautiful that people who were used to the same urban life were amazed. Every day is sunny here, the breeze is blowing, and the special blue rocks at the bottom of the lake are mixed with the reflections of the surrounding snow-capped mountains, as if a whole puddle of blue milk is rippling. Here, the heart will ring with hymns.
3. Oficina Central
The three granite Towers is the most iconic attraction of Torres del Paine National Park, standing like three fingers on the three peaks in the mountains. Among them, the peak in the center is the highest, reaching 3050 meters. The glacial lake at the foot of the mountain has a turquoise color and is very beautiful. The Three Pagodas are facing east and west, which is an excellent holy place to enjoy the sunrise.
The most beautiful lake in Switzerland's Jungfrau region, the Bachalpsee, is located on the mountain north of the town. Its area is not large, and the lake is 2265 meters above sea level. Here, you can watch the beautiful reflection of the distant mountains on the lake and overlook the surrounding scenery.
5. Lake Taranaki
Mount Taranaki is located on a peninsula jutting into the Tasman Sea on the west coast of New Zealand's North Island. It is known as Mount Fuji in the Southern Hemisphere because it is a perfect cone, no matter from which angle it is viewed. The calm lake reflects mountains that are particularly suitable for hiking and skiing.
6. Grand Teton National Park
Another U.S. national park adjacent to Yellowstone, Grand Teton National Park, is located in Wyoming. The main peak of Snow Mountain is more than 5,300 meters above sea level. It forms the main peak group of Grand Teton together with the three adjacent peaks. Together with the Snow Mountain Mountains arranged vertically from north to south, it is like a giant granite tower rising from the ground. Beneath the majestic snow-capped mountains, dense forests, wide lakes, and boundless grasslands form a magnificent picture of nature. Grand Teton Park has become a recognized symbol of the American West and is known as the "Dream Mountain".
7. Peyto Lake
Anyone who has traveled to the Canadian Rockies knows that Peyto Lake should be the highlight. The color of the lake's water is also said to change with the season, weather, and sunlight intensity. Clouds are projected on the lake, creating an illusion of different shades. Every cloud drifts by, creating a different Peyto Lake. When you go to the top of Bow Peak, the commanding height of Icefield Avenue at an altitude of 2085 meters, you can see the panoramic view of Peyto Lake. At this time, you finally know why many people call Peyto Lake "Dog's Head Lake".
