Jellyfish lake

Posted by admin On August - 19 - 2009

Jelly fish lake (Palauan: Ongeim’l Tketau) is simply amazing! I had heard about this extraordinary lake before – it’s unique on the world just in Palau. It is located on Eil Malk island in Palau’s Southern Lagoon between Koror and Peleliu. The lake is part of the rock islands and it is the only one of 70 lakes allowed to visit by tourists. Jelly fish lake is famous for snorkeling. You can’t scuba dive because the scuba gear could harm the sensitive jelly fish and at a depth of about 15m the lake becomes toxic through the hydrogen sulfide. To go there you need to buy a certain pass valid for 10 days and costs US$35. Mostly the visit is part of a dive trip anyway. After arriving at Eil Malk you will climb up the hill and then climb down again. It can be slippery especially if you wear flip flops. Then you change into your snorkel gear and you will be overwhelmed! After swimming towards the middle of the lake out of a sudden you will be surrounded of hundreds of mostly golden jelly fish. I free dove down just to enjoy to be in the center of all of them… Fells like in a fairy tale. So beautiful, so fragile. Be careful not to kick to hard with your fins – the jelly fish are easy harmed. That was one of the most amazing experiences I ever had what made me reverent towards the creation on earth. I had experiences one of the millions of wonders.
