Heaven Lake, China & North Korea
Poised atop a volcanic mountain that straddles the Chinese-North Korean border, the serene waters of Heaven Lake form a perfectly blue mirror reflecting the sky. At an altitude of 2,194 metres, the lake is dramatically set amongst windswept, rocky outcrops and exposed mountainous peaks. Breathtakingly beautiful and cloaked in myth and legend, these ancient waters date back two million years.
