Located near the tiny mountain village of Tragöß, Austria, the Green Lake is a seasonal lake that comes from the collection of snow melt in the large valley between the Karst Mountains. In the winters, the valley is simply a green park with hiking trails, plants and trees and park benches. During the summer, when the winter snows begin to melt, the runnoff from all that melting snow collects in this valley, creating a temporary lake.
The waters of the lake are not green, they are actually crystal clear and some of the cleanest waters anywhere in the world. The Green Lake gets its name from the very green grasses in the park which can be seen perfectly through the clear waters. Depths of the lake vary, depending on the amount of snow the surrounding areas got in the past winter, but the average depth is 2-12 Meters.
