Red Lake

The Red Lake is also known as Ghilcos Lake and it is a natural dam lake formed at the foot of Hasmasul Mare mountain, in the Cheile Bicazului area. The lake is located at a height of 983 m and its name is derived from the Red Creek. The legend says that the landslides have covered an entire village and the accumulated water had the red colour from the blood of humans and animals. Presently the lake shows a rare landscape peculiarity. On the bottom of the lake there remained fir trunks, whose peaks, in some places, become visible above the water.
