Laguna del Carbon, Argentina

From series “Amazing Land Areas Below the Sea Level”
Lenght: 5 km. Width: 2 km. Deepness: 105 meters.

Laguna-del-Carbon - that is the name of the deepest depression in the Southern hemisphere, located in Argentina. In reality, the lagoon, whose depth is 105 meters below sea level, is the deepest part of the vast Gran-Bajo-San-Julian deep. Because of the fact that the bottom of the lowland is almost completely covered with the dangerous marshes, tourists visit only the beautiful lagoon - one of the main tourist attractions of the southern part of the earth.

On the bottom of the valley is the salty lake, whose water level can change every season. Along with it also changes the level of one of the deepest grounds on the planet. The tourists, who seem to be unsatisfying with the walk along the lakes, can also walk through the marshy districts of the lowlands. Because of the high water evaporation level one can see the interesting salins in this area, which form the strange natural sculptures.

Despite the impressive depth, the surface of the valley is relatively small and forms about 9 q. Km The length of the lagoon is about 5 km, and the width - not more than 2 km, which allows you to visit all the most interesting places in this area. 'The coals of coal,' as one can guess from the sinking, is rich in the deposits of the earth treasures that once brought people here. To the beginning - Dead Sea
