The green "Red lake" - Play of colours and lights

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

"Red lake" (Romanian: Lacul Roșu, Hungarian: Gyilkos-tó) is a barrier lake in the Eastern Carpathians chain in Harghita County, Romania. The name of "Lacul Roșu" comes from the reddish alluvia deposited in the lake by the Red Creek. The lake falls within the jurisdiction of the municipality of Gheorgheni.

A Gyilkos-tó (románul: Lacul Roșu, régi magyar nevén: Veres-tó) egy természetes torlasztó a Hagymás-hegységben, a Keleti-Kárpátokban, Hargita megye északkeleti részén. 1837-ben keletkezett egy közeli hegyről lecsúszó törmelék következtében. A tó visszahúzódóban van, a visszamaradó kisebb tavak elláposodnak. A Gyilkos-tó fölé emelkedik északon a Kis-Cohárd (1344 m) sziklája. A környék és a Gyilkostó üdülőtelep közigazgatásilag Gyergyószentmiklóshoz tartozik.
