Outstanding natural beauty

The name comes from agitated waterflow in small scars which make noise or "boil". Turquoise-blue colored lakes makes unreal-looking.

This small lake in the Upper Lakes is possibly my favourite of all the lakes. Small, tranquil and enchanting.. it is easy to believe paradise exists when there are places of such peace and beauty right here on earth itself.

The upper lakes, although spectacular, are not quite as good as the lower lakes. However, they are well worth the extra walk. However, do also visit the lower lakes. We visited on a beautiful Apr. 4/17 day with no crowds, so all was peaceful.

This one belongs to the upper lakes,with less tourists but it worth the walk up there. Nice atmosphere as in the whole park.

This is one of the upper lakes and so is less busy than some of the lower lakes. It's a bit of a walk to get there, but really worth it for the tranquillity.

The upper lakes, although spectacular, and not as good as the lower lakes. If you are visiting the upper lakes make sure you also visit the lower lakes. Be prepared for big crowds, especially in the summer. In the fall the early morning was best for fewer people.

Not so much fun on a rainy day, though. It's a little body of water along the route in the park. One of many.

Mali Lake and adjacent waterfalls are a 30 min hike away from the ferry terminal, and therefore less crowded than lower waterfalls. A must-see if you're making a tour around the upper lakes.
