ow does an entire town remain on a little lake? 

The lake town in Indonesia has become an effective Instagram goal, on account of local people who made it a safe house for extraordinary photographs. 

Umbul Ponggok is 70 to 40 meters in size and is situated in the focal piece of Java Island. 

It brags of its unadulterated clear water, a bounty of bright fish and various lavish columns that have been overflowed by local people. 

Guests can plunge to the base of the lake for a $ 1 extra charge and take extraordinary photographs of things like water skiing, a tent, a cruiser, and a TV.

An underwater camera or a diving photographer can be photographed on-site to take their photos, according to Daily Mail reports.

The Instagram Tourist Attraction account, which features the best underwater photos, has over 40,000 followers.
Even Indonesia's President Goku Widodo admires. He posted a photo on Instagram taken at the lake, where he saw a visitor wander underwater on a motorcycle among the fish.

But Umbul Ponggok, located in the village of Pondok, has not always been an attractive destination for tourists.

Almost 15 years ago, the pond was contaminated and used by locals for bathing and washing.

The village suffers from high unemployment and the lucky ones who earn money work on farms or in local jobs.

But in 2006, the newly elected mayor Gnadi Molino noted that the pond has the ability to clean due to the flow of 40 natural springs.

It persuades villagers to invest in a project that would clean it up and make it a tourist attraction.

Today, villagers own nearly 40 percent of the shares in Umbul Ponggok and many of them earn money to sell souvenirs, clothes, and food around the attractions.
