Exploring Warna Lake
Most of the people come to Warna Lake to see its phenomenon, which is the altering color of the lake water. At a certain time, it emits green color. At the other times, it turns into light blue or other colors such as white and rainbow. Tourists often wonder the causes of such phenomenon, but the locals would explain the reason to them. It is said the changes of lake water color is caused by light refraction of the sulfur deposits, residing at the bottom of the lake.

The best location to witness Warna Lake is from a higher land. In this case, tourists can climb Prau Mountain and enjoy nature views from there. These include the view of mountains, Pangilon Lake, and dense trees. Apart from that, it becomes an opportunity to enjoy hiking or trekking. Reaching the recommended spot for sightseeing in Prau Mountain requires some efforts, after all. This explains why visitors should wear proper footwear and carry bottled water when trekking. Another important tip is that tourists should hire a tour guide, as he can help explore the site and reach Prau Mountain easily.

Another recommended spot to witness the views of Warna Lake is in Batu Ratapan Angin. It also takes some efforts to reach the top of the hills, though. Have no worries. It is worth the effort. Later, tourists can even visit nearby tourist attractions and get more fun there. It is true Warna Lake resides near to Pengilon Lake, but each of them has different characteristics. Its neighbor, Pengilon, doesn’t contain sulfur. That means the water is crystal clear and it has become a significant water supply for farmers and nearby villages.
