Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Lake Como

Answer: Europe

Located in Lombardy, Lake Como is Italy's third largest lake. It is also Europe's deepest lake located outside of Norway. The lake is popular among celebrities with Hollywood stars owning vacation homes on its shores.
2. Attabad Lake

Answer: Asia

This lake has a tragic history. Attabad was a village located in the northern part of Pakistan. In 2010, the village was struck by a landslide. The landslide not only buried the village, it also stopped the flow of the Hunza River causing water to collect and flood multiple villages. Thousands of people were displaced. Ironically, the beautiful turquoise colour of the lake thus formed, resulted in it becoming a major tourist attraction in the Gilgit-Baltistan region. Tourist activities like boat tours and water sports have helped the locals reclaim some of their lost livelihoods.
3. Lake Tekapo

Answer: Oceania

Lake Tekapo is a picturesque site located within the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve in New Zealand. In late spring, the blue waters of the lake contrast with the pink and purple lupins blooming on its shores to create picture perfect views. To add to the beauty, on clear days, the snow laden peaks of Mount Cook National Park are also visible from here making the site a popular tourist destination on the South Island.
4. Moraine Lake

Answer: North America

Canada's Banff National Park is home to many beautiful lakes including Moraine Lake. It is one of the best known natural wonders of Canada and has also featured on the country's twenty dollar note. Fed by melting glaciers, the lake is located in the Valley of the Ten Peaks. The striking blue colour of the water is due to the light refracting off the rock flour deposited by the glaciers.
5. Lake Bled

Answer: Europe

Lake Bled is a popular tourist attraction in northern Slovenia. It is located only 55 km from the country's capital of Ljubljana making it easy to access. A church built in the Baroque architectural style stands on an island within the lake giving a fairy tale air to the area. There is also a medieval castle overlooking the lake which now houses a museum.
6. Lake Retba

Answer: Africa

Lake Retba is also known as Lac Rose which translates to "pink lake". This is due to the pink colour of the water caused by large amounts of algae. The lake lies in the northeastern part of Senegal, close to the Atlantic Ocean. It also has a high saline content of up to 40% which means that people can float here due to the buoyancy.
7. Lake Hillier

Answer: Oceania

Another famous pink lake is Lake Hillier in Western Australia. It is separated from the Southern Ocean by a narrow strip of land. The first written record of a European visiting this lake is when the British explorer Matthew Flinders discovered it in 1802. The pink colour of the lake is due to algae and also a type of bacteria found within the salt crusts.
8. Lake Nakuru

Answer: Africa

Lake Nakuru is famous for the wildlife it attracts. Located in Kenya, in the Rift Valley, it lies within a national park named after it. The waters of the lake teem with algae bringing thousands of flamingos to its shores. Other wildlife you can observe near the lake and within the national park include black and white rhinos, leopards, giraffes and birds like the African fish eagle and Goliath heron.
9. Crater Lake

Answer: North America

Found in Oregon, USA, Crater Lake is of volcanic origin and is located within the caldera of an extinct volcano, Mount Mazama. It is the deepest freshwater lake in the US. The lake is now part of the wider Crater Lake National Park and attracts many tourists not only for its natural beauty but also for the many recreational activities that can be engaged in here.
10. Dal Lake

Answer: Asia

Located in Srinagar, the Dal Lake is synonymous with the region of Kashmir. It is not only a major tourist attraction but also a significant source of livelihood for the locals. This has led to various nicknames like "Srinagar's Jewel" and "Jewel in the Crown of Kashmir". People live on the lake in wooden houseboats known as 'shikaras'.

These are also available for boat tours or longer stays.
