Telaga Warna in Dieng

Telaga Warna or Coloured Lake is a unique lake whose colours change frequently and naturally.  It has a high sulphur level that causes the colour of its waters to change into green, yellow, or sometimes even rainbow-coloured according to the temperature of the water and the angle of the sunshine hitting the water.  Telaga Warna is located at an altitude of 2,000 meters above sea level, and is surrounded by high hills that frame and showcase its natural charms.  The best time to visit the Telaga Warna lake is in the morning, when the air is clear, because fogs will rise from the lake as the day wears on, obscuring the beauty.
