Lake Sorvagsvatn the Faroe Islands ...

Lake Sorvagsvatn or Leytisvatn, as it is sometimes called, is the largest lake in the Faroe Islands and is located on the island of Vagar. He has his own mystery, because what you see in the pictures, it is not true ... That's what I'll tell you later in the article!

Sorvagsvatn of course, is not one of the largest lakes in the world, but nevertheless, has the status of the largest in the Faroe Islands. Headlands on either side of the lake rises to 252 and 376 meters and a length of 6 kilometers Sorvagsvatn. The water goes into the ocean through the waterfall of the same name, which can be considered as only from afar.

And now the fun part ... The picture you saw the first picture is an optical illusion. It seems that the lake is situated well above sea level, in reality, it is only 30 meters above. In this very rock, where it is located rises to as much as 100 meters. Camera position and angle of shooting would have us believe that the lake is at the same height as the cliff ...
