From the high Alps to the Sierra Nevada, alpine lakes are usually found in the quietest, most remote parts of the world. These are 25 stunningly beautiful alpine lakes that you have to see to believe.
Moraine Lake (Alberta, Canada)
This lake in Banff National Park gets most of its water from glacial runoff.
Robin Lakes (Washington, USA)
If you’ve never seen alpenglow, now you have. It’s an optical phenomenon in which although the sun is below the horizon, its rays reflect off of snow, water, or ice particles in the atmosphere to illuminate the peaks of the mountains!
Canyon Creek Lakes (California, USA)
Found in the Trinity Alps of California, the lakes look quite surreal.
Oeschinen Lake (Switzerland)
What else would you expect? It’s Switzerland!
Lake O'Hara (British Columbia, Canada)
The only way to get here is by bus and seats are usually booked up to three months in advance!
