We’ve already reported that there’s a naturally pink lake in North East Mexico but now we’ve found one much closer.
There’s an equally wonderful lake just down the road (kinda) in Altai, Siberia which turns flamingo-coloured every August.
And just like it’s Hispanic cousin, this salt lake turns pink thanks to am overload of microorganisms like Artemia salina – a pink three-eyed, 11-legged brine shrimp – living in the water.
The change in colour kind of makes sense then, when you think that Mexico is permanently warm and provides good conditions all year-round – while parts of Russia gets extremely hot in the summer and cold at other times.
