In the lake, you will find golden jellyfish that have adapted over the years to the conditions of the lake. This means, these jellyfish do not have large and dangerous stingers because they do not need them. The lake is approximately 12,000 years old and is an incredible place to visit.

Each day, the jellyfish follow a specific migration pattern moving from the lake’s western basin to the eastern basin, then later from the eastern basin to the western basin, and so forth. You can also spot some moon jellyfish in the lake.
