The Pink lake Hiller
Since 1802 amazing lake Hillier (Hillier) located on the Middle island (Middle) archipelago Richert (Richerch) in Western Australia, is the most amazing place on this continent. Found it British scientist hydrographer Matthew Flinders, when raised to the upper point of the island.
Surrounded by a thick forest of eucalyptus and sandy beaches, pink lake Hiller is impressive in its unearthly, even space. Special riddle gives it that scientists still have not determined the nature of this unusual color of water. There is speculation that the reason lies in the presence of specific microorganisms Dunaliella, Halophilic Halobacteria or, however, none of the tests carried out here since the 1950’s, this hasn’t been verified. Still the pink lake Hillier remains for our advanced and high-tech world full of secrets a mystery.
In the first decade of the twentieth century on the island Hiller, whose coastline is no less than 600 kilometers and a depth less than one meter, the production was organized in the production of salt, but six years later it was closed and never rebuilt.
In fairness it should be noted that lake Hillier is not the only pink lake on our planet, however, it is the least studied at the moment. Other pink lake you will find Senegal (lake Retba), Australia near the city of kids will never get bored in other cities of the world.
It is also interesting that from the complete disappearance of the lake Hiller is separated by a 500-meter strip of sand, behind which the great Indian ocean. The merger of lake with him will inevitably lead to a change in the colour of its waters more familiar to us, blue.
Unfortunately, compared to other pink lakes in the world, lake Hillier is perhaps the most difficult to reach. The Middle island is not established water navigation, so you can admire the beauty of the lake is possible only through air transport, and this, as you might guess, is quite expensive entertainment. Rent helicopter here though possible, but quite expensive. Perhaps this is one reason that the pink lake Hillier maintains its natural beauty to this day.
