Lake Geneva In Switzerland

Lake Geneva holds its own place in the visitor’s heart once it is visited. Perhaps it is because of the early morning sunshine shimmering over the lake or the pleasant evening sun rays making the lake shine a bit brighter. All you have to do is to take a deep breath and bid goodbye to your stresses. One can say that nature does its own magic at lake Geneva due to its unique formation due to various natural forces such as sedimentation, erosion and tectonic folding. It is basically called with three different names depending on their characteristics. The upper lake is called Haut Lac, the largest lake is called Grand Lac (Large Lake) and the smallest one is called Petite Lake (Small Lake). This is also one of the very few lakes which are shared between two countries i.e France and Switzerland which also happens to be one of the largest lakes in Western Europe. This lake is spread across 580 km² in area and 73kms in length.

Considering the location of this crescent-shaped lake which is between the Alps mountains the temperature around the lake is usually low and sometimes it goes way below minus degrees so it is always advisable to carry warm clothes especially during the winter and during the summer the temperature averages around 28-30 degrees which is just perfect for an outing in Switzerland.
