Three Lakes of Pamir Mountains

Posted on April 6, 2014 by tim


Pamir is a range of mountains, part of which is in the Southern part of USSR, which is now Tajikistan, and which shares a border with Afghanistan. There are lakes in the mountains, and here are widescreen photos of three of those lakes. The traveller, Vladimir, says that these lakes have the names "Stinky", "High" and "Green". So this is  the "Green" lake in the picture above. It actually becomes green under certain lighting conditions. An example is below:

At other times its more blue than green.
