Mountain lake bucket list: 10 natural pools I want to see this summer

I’ve seen some pretty spectacular mountain lakes in Switzerland, most notably the ones on the four and five lake hikes, and many in the Alpstein area. Recently, I keep seeing lakes on Instagram that I want to go to this summer, so I figured it made sense to compile them for this month’s Instagram Travel Thursday. I’d be very happy to get some recommendations from you guys, too! Let the mountain lake galore begin. PS – the “cover photo” of this post is a lake I saw just last weekend, up on Kreuzboden in the Saas valley in Valais. Good stuff!
