Lake Alexander (Iskanderkul), Tajikistan

4.7
Glacial in origin, Lake Alexander (Iskanderkul) offers panoramic vistas from an altitude of 2,195 m (7,201 ft). The turquoise waters contrast wonderfully against its alpine surroundings and provide the perfect photo opportunity. Due to the water's high mineral content, the lake has barely any aquatic life, but the surrounding forest, a designated nature reserve, is home to an abundance of plant and animal life.
