5 Incredible Underwater Attractions (Slideshow)

 

5. Lake Kaindy, Kazakhstan

You’ll find this picturesque lake thousands of feet above sea level in Kazakhstan’s Tian Shan mountain range.

The new lake submerged several large pine trees, and the water is so cold that the trees still retain their needles underwater!
