This beautiful lake is located 3800 meters above sea level at the bottom of an ancient volcanic caldera.
Water is very cold, full of minerals and salt, which gives his greenish color to the lake

The amazingly deep blue waters of the incomparable Crater Lake, looking down on the island known as the Phantom Ship, on a warm summer day in southern Oregon.

"Crater Lake is a caldera lake in south-central Oregon in the western United States. It is the main feature of Crater Lake National Park and is famous for its deep blue color and water clarity. The lake partly fills a nearly 2,148-foot (655 m)-deep caldera that was formed around 7,700 ( 150) years ago by the collapse of the volcano Mount Mazama, cutting more than 4,000 feet off the height of the previously over 12,000-foot-tall peak. There are no rivers flowing into or out of the lake; the evaporation is compensated for by rain and snowfall at a rate such that the total amount of water is replaced every 250 years. With a depth of 1,949 feet (594 m), the lake is the deepest in the United States. In the world, it ranks ninth for maximum depth, and third for mean (average) depth." (Wikipedia)
