Green Lake is a lake in Austria. The lake is surrounded by the Mountains and forests. The name "Green Lake" originated because of its emerald green water. The clean and clear water comes from the snowmelt from the krast mountains and has a temperature of 6–7 °C.
However, in spring, it is believed that when the temperature rises and snow melts, the basin of land below the mountains fills with water.
The lake supports a variety of fauna such as snails, water fleas, small crabs, fly larvae, and other different species. The flora is not abundant because of the rocky bottom of the lake. Furthermore, the lake’s depth is variable since its inflow comes from snowmelt.
The lake reaches its maximum depth of around 12 m (39 ft) from mid May to June and is claimed to look the most beautiful at this time.
It is said that the lake was popular among divers who could observe the green meadows in the edge zone of the lake particularly in June when the water is at its highest. A bridge and a bench could also be found underwater. Trails and trees could also be seen underwater!!
