Top 10 Largest Lakes of the World

These most massive of the world’s natural lakes are found across the world. The following table lists is about top 10 largest lakes of the world. Note: The Caspian Sea is called “sea” because the Romans, finding it salty, named it Mare Caspium. Many geographers, however, consider it a lake because it is land locked.
