Sunken Forest in Kazakhstan Hides a Puzzling Story

Today post takes us to Kazakhstan, fellow Lazy Penguins. Here you got a few info about the country (from Wikipedia).

Kazakhstan, a Central Asian country and former Soviet republic, extends from the Caspian Sea in the west to the Altai Mountains at its eastern border with China and Russia.

We present to you Lake Kaindy, a lake with longitude of 400 meters (around 1300feet), located in the mountains of Tian Shan. Its aspect quite normal if you have a quick look, when you pay attention to the details, you can easily see that dried out treetops, swelling from crystal water, serve as proof for the puzzling story this lake is hiding.

The lake was created as a consequence of an immense limestone landslide, activated by the 1911 Kebin earthquake. “H/T”: freeyork
