  Lake Titicaca - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Titicaca is fed by rainfall and meltwater from glaciers on the sierras that abut the Altiplano.
It is drained by the Desaguadero River, which flows south through Bolivia to Lake Poopó; however, this effluent accounts for less than five per cent of the water loss, the rest being accounted for by evaporation as a result of the strong winds and intense sunlight at this altitude.
The partly-salt Lake Maracaibo in Venezuela is bigger that Titicaca, at about 13,000 square kilometres, but some say it should be classified as a sea because it is connected to the ocean.

Several glacial valleys can be found in the English Lake District and many can be found in Alpine countries.

 tarn   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Grisedale Tarn, like other tarns, is a body of water in the hills of the picturesque English Lake District, which is located in the northwestern corner of England, just south of Scotland.
Grisedale Tarn is located in the vicinity of Grasmere, the home village of William and Dorothy Wordsworth from 1800 to 1813, and--because of the poetry Wordsworth wrote while living there--a geographical center for the Romantic Movement in England.
There is a biographical relevance to Grisedale Tarn in that Wordsworth and his brother John would fish there and parted at the Tarn forever, it turned out, after John's drowning at sea.

 Alan Rolfe's walks: Easedale Tarn & Tarn Crag, Lake District
After pausing at the tarn, continue now heading generally W, fairly level at first and then climbing very steeply after passing the inflow to the tarn.
Head just E of N and make for the heights of Tarn Crag off to the R. Do not be tempted to take the apparently easier option of skirting Tarn Crag of its L as there is only a precipitous drop back down to Easedale Tarn.
It can be quite boggy after leaving the tarn as you head towards Tarn Crag but this some passes and firmer ground is reached.
