(ORDO NEWS) — No one knows where fresh water comes from.

A picturesque lake perched high on a mountaintop in Ontario, Canada hides a mystery yet to be revealed.

Found 200 feet above Lake Ontario’s Quinte Bay, this peculiar freshwater lake, called “Onokenoga” by the Mohawks, has puzzled scientists and other explorers for years.

Even though there are no open sources of water flowing into or out of the lake, it somehow manages to provide a constant supply of fresh water. This seems to defy all geological norms and which simply has no definitive explanation.

The Iroquois revered the lake, and some of the earliest settlers believed it could even descend into the very bowels of the earth.

Although this is certainly unlikely, scientists have long tried to find a reasonable explanation for this phenomenon, and despite numerous searches, no source of fresh water has been found.

Over the years, geographers and scientists have put forward many complex theories about how the lake can fill with water.

The most common theory is that the lake is a collapsed valley found in areas with limestone rock foundations.

The scientists hypothesized that the limestone beneath the surface had dissolved, creating a cavity through which water could flow into the reservoir. However, no matter how plausible this idea may seem, it is still a theory.

Over the years, the mystery has fueled interest in the area, which is now a popular destination for tourists.
