9. Heart Lake, Russia

This darling little lake – about which few details are known – lies at the foot of Peak Cherskogo in the Chersky Mountains, not so very far from the massive Lake Baikal. If you want to climb Gora Cherskogo to view the lake, it’s a 5-hour trek.

Heart-shaped lakes are among Mother Nature’s most romantic creations. She sure does know how to make us smile. Would you like to visit any of these places?
