Scenic lakes and rivers around the world

Lake Malawi is an African Great Lake and the southernmost lake in the East African Rift system, located between Malawi, Mozambique and Tanzania.
It is the ninth largest lake in the world and it is reportedly the habitat of more species of fish than any other body of freshwater.

Lai da Palpuogna in Switzerland is a mountain lake at Albula Pass in the municipality of Bergün.
In a 2007 television program of the Swiss channel SF 1, the lake was voted the most beautiful place in Switzerland.

Lake Vänern - the largest lake in Sweden and the EU. Also, one of the largest lakes in Europe.

Nice pics but each post must conform to the format that i have already established for pictures in this thread and not exceed 5 photos a post. Also each new post must represent a different country/part of the world from the one before it. I don't expect one country to be represented twice on the same page.

Kayangan Lake on Coron island in the Philippines is said to be one of the cleanest lakes in Asia. Some sources say it's the cleanest
because the water is so clear that you can see the bottom of the lake

Emerald Lake is located in Yoho National Park, British Columbia, Canada. The vivid turquoise color of the water, caused by powdered limestone
is most spectacular in July as the snow melts from the surrounding mountains.

@Japanac, great pics but please stick to the format of posting pics in this thread.

The Potaro River is in Guyana, in northern South America. Nine waterfalls are found on the Potaro River. The most notable of these is
Kaieteur Falls which is 226 metres (741 ft) high when measured from its plunge over a sandstone and conglomerate cliff to the first break.

Hills covered in forests as far as the eyes can go, a river with deep waterfalls and above all, no visible trace of human activity. Paradise! Same about that lake in Philippines.
