endorheic lake


Pangong Lake high in the Himalayas - a closed basin only fed by inflow from streams and snow/rain on the site. This lake straddles the border between India and China.

Lake Frome Australia.

This stunning aerial shot is of Lake Frome, a salt lake located East of the Northern Flinders ranges in South Australia.
The lake is a closed system (endorheic), also known as a salt pan and is 100km long and 40km wide, and mostly below sea level. The lake fills only rarely and from water that flows down creeks in the Flinders ranges from the West (these creeks are also usually dry), or from Strzelecki Creek in the North if there are exceptional flows along this creek.
