    Green Lake Austria- Who needs roads? A diver takes his own path through the country park, past an access road. It's hiking trails for part of the year and a crystal clear lake the other part.

    Green Lake in Tragoess, Styria, Austria. During winter time this place is almost completely dry and used by hikers - but when the snow starts to melt, the basin fills with crystal clear water. I would love to scuba dive there !

    A rare natural phenomenon turns one of Austria’s most beautiful hiking trails into a 10 meter-deep lake, for half the year. Located at the foot of the Hochschwab Mountains, in Tragoess, Styria, Green Lake (Grüner See) is one of the most bizarre natural phenomena in the world. During the cold winter months, this place is almost completely dry, and used as a country park. But as soon as temperatures rise, the snow and ice covering melts and flooding the park in crystal clear water!

    Green Lake, Austria. The snow melts on the mountains in early summer and creates a completely clear lake. The lake has a grassy bottom, complete with underwater trails, park benches, and bridges.
