Lake Turns Three Colours

These three lakes have baffled scientists for centuries – as they spontaneously CHANGE COLOUR. Lake Kelimutu, which sits atop Mount Kelimutu on Flores Island, Indonesia, is made up of three crater lakes. Although they sit side by side on the crest of the same volcano, are all strikingly different in their appearance. Visitors are never quite sure what colour the lakes will be when they reach the top due to the chemical reactions that take place in the water.
