The lake has a great variety of colours and these are brilliant when the sun shines. Don't miss the boardwalk that has a lot of small waterfalls next to it. You can see how blue the water is in this waterfall. Amazing view.

Each lake in the park offers different opportunities to take interesting photographs. With the sun overhead, the waters of this lake are like champagne and offer a good reflection of the surrounding mountains

Don't miss the boardwalk on the northern side. The waterfalls along the boardwalk are magical. If you go a bit later, you can almost be all alone.

You can see the sunlight skimming off the surface of this serene lake and catch some divine energy seemingly ascending into heaven from the surface of this lake. (A mirage effect). Very cool.
