Deepest Lake in Europe
Hornindalsvatnet is the deepest lake of Europe which is located in Norway. Its maximum depth is 514 meters (1686 ft), which also makes it the 8th deepest lake in the world. The surface of lake is 53 meters above the sea level whereas the volume of lake is estimated at 12 cubic kilometers. The shape of the lake is quite eccentric but alluring. Three mountain ranges surround the lake—Hornindal Stokken, Gulkoppen, Middag Fjellet—and none of the glacier stream runs out or into the lake. Therefore it is Europe’s clearest lake.
Area vise it is 19th largest Lake of Norway. On the east of Hornindalsvatnet there is a village known as Village of Grodas and another village “Village of Mogrenda” is sited on its west of the municipality of Norway “Eid”. Overall, it is a good lake which is worth watching because of its natural sceneries.
