La Brea Pitch Lake, Trinidad And Tobago


The Pitch Lake is found in southwest Trinidad in the village of La Brea. The lake measures approximately one hundred acres and is estimated to be 76 metres deep in the centre. It holds about ten million tons of pitch - its the largest natural deposit of asphalt in the world.
La Brea pitch lake is one of the three tentative Unesco sites of Trinidad and Tobago, I am really thankful to Nalini for sending it :))
