China’s Dead Sea Turns Pink!

Yencheng Salt Lake in China, known as ‘Dead Sea’, turned pink on one side

The lake is now green on one side and pink on the other side

The event is attracting a large number of visitors

Spread in 132 sq km, Dead Sea is the world’s third largest sodium sulphate inland lake

The pink color is due to an algae called Dunaliella Salina

The dual colors last for many years at times, but the view disappears in winter season

Geologists said that the lake formed about 50 million years ago

Chinese began using the lake at least 4,000 years ago

The salt produced from it is used for industrial purposes
