Who could resist a trip to see a pink lake. I do not know why the water is pink, but it definately is not a color I've seen. It would have been better if this was not an organized tour where we did not stop to explore. Others had more adventure, securing another ride to the lake, but they were able to bring back a bottle of pink water and some salt. This picture is not enhansed, you can see the pinkish hue, not like the postcards, but the camera did not really capture the color that you see with your eye.
