Lake Natron In northern Tаnzаnіа

Lake Natron is a salt lake located in northern Tanzania, close to the Kenyan border, in the eastern of branch of the East African Rift. The lake is fed by the Southern Ewaso Ng’iro River and also by mineral-rich hot springs. The ultimate deception comes into play when any birds or animals come across this mysterious and deathly pool of water, they get confused by the hyper reflective surface, hit onto it right about just to be turned out to an insensible hard matter.

Though the word petrified might be a misnomer, the alkaline water in Lake Natron has a PH as high as 10.5 and is so caustic that can burn the skin and eyes of animals that aren’t adapted to it. The water’s alkalinity hills from the sodium carbonate and other minerals that flow into the lake from the surrounding hills. The deposits of sodium carbonate which was once used in Egyptians mummification, acts as a fantastic type of preservation for those animals unlucky enough to die in the waters of Lake Natron.
