Hamilton Pool is in Texas, USA. It is 23 mi (37 km) West from Austin and is one of the most unusual as well as beautiful lakes in the world. The lake belongs to Travis County Park. It formed thousands of years ago after a calciferous dome broke off the ground and fell, opening and forming a fascinating pool. It is considered to be ground and underground lake simultaneously.
