Lake Kaindy is a lake in Kazakhstan located 2000 meters above sea level and measuring in at an impressive 400 meters long. It was created after an earthquake in 1911, when a large landslide blocked a gorge and formed a natural dam where rainwater filled the valley.

And thanks to the lake’s frigid waters, the submerged forest in its midst is replete with great pines that thrive to this very day.
