Top 10 the most Beautiful Lakes in the World

Top 10 Beautiful Lakes
Top 10 Beautiful Lakes

lake is an area filled with water, localized in a basin, surrounded by land, apart from any river or other outlet that serves to feed or drain the lake.  Lakes lie on land and are not part of the ocean, although like the much larger oceans, they form part of earth’s water cycle. Lakes are distinct from lagoons which are generally coastal parts of the ocean. They are generally larger and deeper than ponds, which also lie on land, though there are no official or scientific definitions. Lakes can be contrasted with rivers or streams, which are usually flowing in a channel on land. Most lakes are fed and drained by rivers and streams.

All told, there are more than 117 million lakes on Earth. While we didn’t sift through them all, we did tackle quite a large list in order to bring you this—the 10 most stunning, awe-inspiring, picture-perfect puddles of water our planet has to offer. How many have you checked off?

Inle Lake, Myanmar

Inle Lake

Inle Lake

Once closed to American travelers, Myanmar is now full of discovery. The monasteries of Bagan and the capital of Yangon continue to be its biggest draws, but you’d be remiss to skip Inle Lake, in the Shan Hills. There, stilted villages, built out over the water, are interspersed with centuries-old stone pagodas and monasteries, and the lake itself is plied by one-man boats whose fishermen balance on one leg and steer their oar with the other.

Pehoé Lake, Chilean Patagonia

Pehoé Lake

Pehoé Lake

Torres del Paine National Park covers roughly 500,000 acres of southern Chile—enough space to cover many climates and terrains, from snow-capped granite mountains and glittering glaciers to rolling grasslands and pampas and—yes—ice-blue lakes. Its most panoramic view is of Torres range beneath the Salto Chico waterfall on Lake Pehoé.

Lake Baikal, Russia

Lake Baikal

Lake Baikal

This ethereal body of water in Russian Siberia holds a lot of records. Not only is Baikal the world’s oldest lake, it’s also its deepest, containing 20% of the world’s fresh water (that’s as much as all five Great American Lakes combined). Due to its isolation and absence of minerals, Baikal is also one of the world’s cleanest and clearest lakes, which makes for a fantastic show. During the summer, runoff from the Siberian mountains means that in some spots, you can see as far as 130 feet below the surface. Come winter, when the lake freezes over, fissures and methane bubbles can form in the ice—or not, creating the illusion that you’re walking on air.

Lake Tahoe, California

Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe is one of America’s great destinations—an outdoor adventure paradise backed by the Sierra Nevadas that’s beautiful in every season. During the summer, visitors flock to its turquoise waters and sandy beaches for sailing and kayaking or tackle the Tahoe Rim Trail for views of the basin. When winter hits, the area’s lauded ski resorts kick into high gear. Base yourself at the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe for access to its private beach, fleet of boats, cabin-like rooms, and heated outdoor pool.

Lake Pichola, India

Lake Pichola

Lake Pichola

In 1899, Rudyard Kipling wrote in Letters of Marque, “If the Venetian owned the Pichola, he might say with justice, ‘see it and die.’” It’s easy to understand what he was talking about when you lay eyes on this serene escape in the middle of Udaipur. Many don’t realize the lake is actually man-made, first built in 1362 as an easier means of transporting grain across the city. Check in at the floating Taj Lake Palace hotel, accessible only by boat, to take in the city’s Mediterranean-esque waterfront from afar.

Lake Wakatipu, New Zealand

Lake Wakatipu

Lake Wakatipu

Queenstown, on New Zealand’s South Island, is the adrenaline capital of the world—the birthplace of bungee jumping as well as one of the best spots to go sky-diving, whitewater rafting, paragliding, and hiking. The base of your stay should be anywhere land meets the shore of Lake Wakatipu, which is surrounded on all sides by mountains—most notably the snow-capped Remarkables range. Our pick: the rustic-luxe Matakauri Lodge.

Laguna Colorada, Bolivia

Laguna Colorada

Laguna Colorada

Bolivia’s “red lagoon” is otherworldly. Red algae gives the shallow salt water its distinct rusty hue, which is broken up every so often by white pools made up of borax deposits that sit on the surface. Even more striking are the famous flamingoes that flock here to feast on plankton—white by nature, their feathers take on a pink glow from being stained by the algae they wade through

Lake Como, Italy

Lake Como

Lake Como

With its sprawling villas, Riva-lined marinas, and romantic promenades, this glamorous Italian playground continues to seduce today’s biggest stars. At Villa d’Este, a 16th-century old-world palace loved for its fountain-filled formal gardens and floating pool, you can rent the hotel boat for a cruise across the lake. Is your taste a bit more modern? Head to Torno and check in at Il Sereno Lago di Como, a contemporary showstopper designed by Patricia Urquiola.

Dead Sea, Jordan

Dead Sea

Dead Sea

The saltiest spot on Earth is a swimmer’s favorite thanks to its natural buoyancy, but as the lake continues to recede at an astonishing rate, we’re reminded not only of its beauty but of its importance as the sole feeder of the Jordan River as well as a major center for health research. While it’s still here, it’s worth a pilgrimage. After soaking in the salty, cobalt-blue waters, tour the ancient fortress of Masada before resting your feet at the Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea, a romantic resort 1,400 feet below sea level.

Crater Lake, Oregon

Crater Lake

Crater Lake

America’s deepest lake is also one of its most peculiar. Its famously clear blue water pooled here after Mount Mazama erupted more than six thousand years ago, leaving behind a cavernous caldera. At one end sits Crater Lake Lodge, where you can enjoy breakfast with a view before a ranger-led boat tour that touches on the park’s geology.

Porsche

How to make a ranking of the most luxurious brands without including the world-famous Porsche. The German luxury car brand offers a range of sports cars. The most popular model is of course the Porsche 911. The first generation of this car dates back to 1964, today more than 50 years later, the flagship model of the brand still keeps the same aestheticism and the name. A second-hand Porsche 911 has now become a very affordable car, even if the recent models hardly sell for less than 100k euros.

So, Porsche remains a brand offering quality sports cars, some of these models have accessible price levels.

Mercedes Benz –

Mercedes Benz

Still German, Mercedes Benz is a manufacturer of premium, sports and luxury cars. But also coaches and trucks. Despite an history full of ups and downs, especially during the Second World War when the brand was forced to produce for the German army, exploiting French and Soviet workers, Mercedes is today a brand imposing a certain class.

The range of Mercedes is really very varied, from the Mercedes Citan van to much more sporty and eye-catching models like the famous SLS and its vertical door opening, which is actually similar to that of our Cirrus Sr22! In short, Mercedes remains a pledge of quality, with a very varied range to reach all users.

Lotus Cars –

Lotus Car

Lotus Car

Lotus is an English sports and racing car manufacturer. It is quite rare to see a Lotus in the street, but when you see one you notice it!

Lotus offers compact sports models, such as the famous Lotus Elise and the Lotus Evora. There are also many models that are highly prized by collectors, such as the Lotus Excel, straight out of a science fiction series from the 80s and which looks a lot like the Pontiac (K.I.T.T.) from K2000! Its retractable headlights give it an old school touch.

Lotus Cars is based at the former RAF Hethel airbase in Northfolk. We have already taken passengers to visit Lotus Cars!  Discover other airfields used as racetracks as we can fly you there!

In order to be able to enjoy the quality of Italian sports cars, you will still have to pay nearly 100k euros for a second hand car.

Aston Martin –

Aston Martin

Aston Martin

How can we not know this British brand widely highlighted by the James Bond films. In 1913, the pilot Lionel Martin created a car in order to participate in the Aston Clinton race of which he was the winner in 1914. The merger of the two names gave Aston Martin. The logo comes from the Egyptian god Khepri, symbolized by a beetle.

Aston Martin represents the perfect combination of classy and fast cars. You can choose your favourite between the Aston Martin Vantage, the Rapide or the DB11, a descendant of the DB5 which was the first model to appear in James Bond Goldfinger in 1964.

Bentley –

Bentley

Bentley

Now we’re talking about luxury cars! Bentley, founded in 1919 in Cricklewood, North London.  The brand became known to the general public thanks to numerous victories in the 24h Du Mans, in 1924, 1927, 1928, 1929 and 1930.  Prominent models testify to Bentley’s historic dominance in motor racing, such as the 4 1/2 liter Bentley, the Bentley R Type Continental and the Bentley Turbo R.

Today Bentley offers a range of luxury sedans and SUVs. For the sum of 200k euros, you can treat yourself to a Bentley Continental. No more excuses for not arriving on time for your appointments with this almost 5 meters long and 2500 kg mastodon powered by some 558 horses.

Bugatti

Bugatti

Automobiles Ettore Bugatti was a French automobile manufacturer founded in 1909 in Molsheim, Alsace. The cars were rated for their beauty and performance on the racetrack. The Bugatti cars that made history were the Type 30 Grand Prix, the Type 41 Royale, the Type 57 Atlantique and the Type 55 sports car.

After Ettore Bugatti’s death in 1947, the brand went bankrupt, but was put back on track in 1950 by an Italian entrepreneur. Today the brand is owned by the Volkswagen Group.

Do you want to turn heads when you drive through the city centre? This car is made for you! It will be very difficult to find a Bugatti Veyron for less than 1 million euros and the Chiron will cost you 2.5 million but will provide you with no less than 1,500 horsepower for sure acceleration.

Ferrari –

Ferrari

Ferrari

Welcome to the top three, one of the best luxury car brands.

Ferrari, probably the most popular and recognized car brand in the world. Scuderia Ferrari was founded in 1929 by Enzo Ferrari. Enzo was himself a race driver for Alpha Romeo when he decided to launch the Scuderia Ferrari.  The logo comes from the mother of Francesco Baracca, an Italian aviation pilot who had painted a prancing horse on his cabin.

While the Avio Costruzioni 815 produced in 1940, which remained in the shadow of the Second World War, still participates today in classic car races.  In 1947, the legendary Ferrari 125 was built and won the 1947 Rome Grand Prix.  Michael Schumacher put a lot of emphasis on the brand during his 10 years of driving in Formula 1 between 1996 and 2006 where he won 72 victories and 5 world titles.   You can purchase a new Ferrari Portofino for some 200k euros, with prices climbing to 1.6 million for the Ferrari Monza.

Lamborghini –

Lamborghini

Lamborghini

A top 10 for luxury car brands has to involve a Lamborghini! Did you hear thunderstorms when the skies were clear? Look no further, it’s probably a Lamborghini Aventador just around the corner!  Lamborghini was founded in 1963 by Ferruccio Lamborghini. Initially specializing in the construction of tractors in post-war Italy, Ferrucio Lamborghini made his fortune in the space of 10 years.

The Lamborghini group then devoted itself exclusively to the construction of prestigious sports cars. In 1998 the Volkswagen group will take over Lamborghini.  In spite of an absence from the competitive scene, the 350 GT and Huracan models managed to stand alongside exceptional cars.

For 180k euros you will have the possibility to go to work in a Lamborghini Huracan, for an Aventador you will have to pay more than 340 K euros !

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars –

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars

It was in 1904 that Roll Royce started building cars. Created by Charles-Royce who died in 1910, the logo of the brand “RR” will pass from red to black. It is in 1914 that the company converted to the manufacture of aircraft engines, particularly for the first and second world wars. Nationalized in 1971, Rolls Royce finally divided into two entities, the automotive division under the name Rolls Royce Motors and the aerospace division, Rolls Royce plc.

Unlike many of the brands mentioned above, Rolls Royce only offers SUVs and other luxury car and no sports cars.  In 2016 the Rolls Royce Cullinan is launched for 344,000 euros, making it the most expensive SUV in the world well ahead of the Bentley Bentyaga (217,800 euros).  You can also invest in a Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III, a collector’s model for some 200,000 Euros!

Top 10 Most Wanted Persons In The World.

A most wanted list, maintained by a law enforcement agency, is a list of criminals and alleged criminals who are believed to be at large and are identified as the agency’s highest priority for capture. The list can alert the public to be watchful and generates publicity for the agency. The (FBI) was the first agency to create a most-wanted list. The list was inaugurated on March 14, 1950, at the direction of FBI director J. Edgar Hoover. The idea for the list came from a question asked by a reporter for the International News Service. The reporter asked the FBI to provide names and descriptions of the “toughest guys” that the agency wanted to capture. After observing the high level of public interest generated by the resulting news story, Hoover decided to publish a formal list.

Top 10 Avatars of Lord Vishnu

What are Avatars

a manifestation of a deity or released soul in bodily form on earth; an incarnate divine teacher.  Especially Avatar is a Sanskrit word which means different forms and lives.  If we assume that evolution of life and Avatars of Lord Vishnu are both same, we can have brief study of evolution of life with the reference of Avatars of Lord Vishnu.

Once an American reporter asked, “Why only Indians have Avatars? why don’t have for others?” The answer is Indians didn’t forget all of those Avatars to keep in records and others forgot who had worked in their own land.  Avatar can be a person that help you to get out of our problems but with the time we forget those who helped us.  According to Hindu scripture, Avatar is a symbol of God, yet Avatar does not have any barriers of religion, races, caste.  In the case of Avatars of Lord Vishnu, all of those were born is different eras yet all worked to save human lives, morals and remembrance of God.  We will be going through all of these ten Avatars one by one according to scripture, Purana and Vedas called as Dash-avatar (Dash- 10, Avatar– Forms)

Matsya-avatar (Matsya – Fish)-

King Vaivasvata Manu finds a little fish in the palm of his hands when performing the Tarpana (water-offering). The fish asks Manu if his riches and power was enough to give the fish a nice home. Manu keeps the fish to give it a home, but the fish keeps expanding, which breaks Manu’s pride about his wealth. Eventually, he releases it into the ocean, realizing it is Lord Vishnu himself. Vishnu informs Manu of the coming destruction of the world, by means of fires and floods, and directs Manu to collect “all creatures of the world” and keep them safe on a boat built by the gods. When the deluge (Pralaya) comes, Vishnu appears as a great fish with a horn, to which Manu ties the boat, which leads them into safety.

 Kurma-Avatar (Kurma – Tortoise)

The Giant Tortoise Avatar. When the devas (Gods) and asuras (Devils) were churning the ocean of milk in order to get Amrit, the nectar of immortality, the mount Mandara they were using as the churning staff started to sink and Vishnu took the form of a tortoise to bear the weight of the mountain and save Amrit from Devils.  It would be hard enough to save the Earth from Asuras if it would have found them.  To understand this situation more please look at the image.

Varaha-Avatar (Varaha- Wild Swine)

He appeared to defeat  Hiranyaksha, a demon who had taken the Earth, or Prithvi, and carried it to the bottom of what is described as the cosmic ocean (much like in ether theory) in the story. The battle between Varaha and Hiranyaksha is believed to have lasted for a thousand years, which the former finally won. Varaha carried the Earth out of the ocean between his tusks and restored it to its place in the universe.

Varah-Avatar

 Narasimha (Nar- Male, Simha- Lion)

The half-man/half-lion Avatar. Jaya and his brother Vijaya are cursed by the sage sanaka when they stop him from seeing Vishnu, and will be reborn three times as demons to be killed by Vishnu. In their first demonic birth they become Hiranyaksha and Hiranyakashipu. Hiranyakashipu persecuted everyone for their religious beliefs including his son who was a Vishnu follower. he was protected by Brahma, and could by no means be killed. Vishnu descended as an anthropomorphic incarnation, with the body of a man and head and claws of a lion. He disemboweled Hiranyakashipu, and brought an end to the persecution of human beings including his devotee Prahlada.

Narasimha

 Vamana (Dwarf man Avatar)

The fourth descendant of Vishnu, Bali, with devotion and penance was able to defeat Indra, the god of firmament. This humbled the other deities and extended his authority over the three worlds. The gods appealed to Vishnu for protection and he descended as a boy Vamana. During a yagya of the king, Vamana approached him and Bali promised him for whatever he asked. Vamana asked for three paces of land. Bali agreed, and the dwarf then changed his size to that of a giant Trivikrama form.  With his first stride he covered the earthly realm, with the second he covered the heavenly realm thereby symbolically covering the abode of all living beings. He then took the third stride for the netherworld. Bali realized that Vamana was Vishnu incarnate. In deference, the king offered his head as the third place for Vamana to place his foot. The avatar did so and thus granted Bali immortality and making him ruler of Pathala, the netherworld. This legend appears in hymn 1.154 of the Rugveda and other Vedic as well as Puranic texts.

 Parashurama (Man with an Axe)

He is son of  Jamadagni and Renuka and was granted as boon, an axe after a penance to Lord Shiva. He is the first Brahmin-Kshatriya in Hinduism, or warrior-sage, who had to follow the Dharma of both, a Brahmin as well as a Kshatriya. Once, when king Kartvirya Arjuna and his hunting party halted at the ashrama of Jamadagni, the father of Parashurama, and the sage was able to feed them all with the aid of the divine cow Kamdhenu. The king demanded the cow, but Jamadagni refused. Enraged, the king took it by force and destroyed the ashram. Parashurama then killed the king at his palace and destroyed his army. In revenge, the sons of Kartavirya killed Jamadagni. Parashurama took a vow to kill every Kshatriya on earth twenty-one times over, and filled five lakes with their blood. Ultimately, his grandfather, Rishi Rucheeka, appeared before him and made him halt. He is a chiranjeevi (immortal), and believed to be alive today in penance at Mahendragiri. He also credited for creating coastal belt of Karnataka and Kerala throwing his mighty axe as per Hindu mythology. The place the axe landed in sea got its water displaced and the land which emerged thus came to be known as coast of Karnataka and whole of Kerala.

Lord Sri Rama 

The Avatar of Morality and Rules, The Prince and King of Ayodhya. He is a commonly worshipped avatar in Hinduism, and is thought of as the ideal model of a common prince without super powers, despite being an incarnation. His story is recounted in one of the most widely read scriptures of Hinduism, the Ramayana. While in exile from his own kingdom with his brother Lakshman and the God Hanuman, his wife Sita was abducted by the demon king of Lanka, Ravana. He travelled to Lanka, killed the demon king and saved Sita. Rama and Sita returned home and were crowned.

  Gautam Buddha

He is the founder of Buddhism, is commonly included as an avatar of Vishnu in Hinduism. Buddha is sometimes depicted in Hindu scriptures as a preacher who deludes and leads demons and heretics away from the path of the Vedic Scripture, but another view praises him a compassionate teacher who preached the path of Ahimsa(non-violence).  As earlier mentioned that there is no barriers of religion is satisfied in this avatar.

Kalki is described as the final incarnation of Vishnu, who appears at the end of each Kali Yuga. He will be atop a white horse and his sword will be drawn, blazing like a comet. He appears when only chaos, evil and persecution prevails, Dharma has vanished, and he ends the Kali Yuga to restart Satya yuga and another cycle of existence.

Evolutionary Interpretation – 

  • Matsya- fish (Paleozoic era)
  • Kurma- amphibious tortoise (Mesozoic era)
  • Varaha – boar (Cenozoic era)
  • Narsimha- man-lion, the last animal and semi-human avatar (Cenozoic era)
  • Vamana- growing dwarf and first step towards the human form
  • Parashurama- a hero, but imperfect human form
  • Shri Rama – another hero, physically perfect, befriends a speaking Vanara deity Hanuman
  • Lord Krishna- son of Devaki
  • Gautam Buddha- the Buddhism founder
  • Kalki- yet to happen and the savior, and is like Christian Advent, which Madame Blavatsky believed Christians “undoubtedly copied from the Hindus.

The Puranas speak of the different manifestations or incarnations of the Deity in different epochs of the world history.  The Hindu Avatar rises from the lowest scale of life through the fish, the tortoise, and the hog up to the perfection of humanity. Indian Avatarism is, indeed, a crude representation of the ascending scale of Divine creation. Such precisely is the modern theory of evolution.

 

*Here are numbering of Avatar are in incorrect manner, they are given from 10 to 1 but they are starting from 1 to 10.
