Ecotourism. The most amazing lakes in the world

Since late 20-ies, substantially increased the attention to environmental protection. Now, not only environmentalists, but also ordinary people think in order to make a contribution to the preservation of the ecological system of the Earth.

The size of a giant bowl with a bright pink water reaches up to 3 sq. km. the Maximum depth does not exceed 3 meters.
