The Lost Sea, is listed in the Guiness Book of World Records as the world's largest underground lake. Deep inside a mountain near Sweetwater in East Tennessee is a remarkable body of water known as The Lost Sea. The caverns have been known and used since the days of the Cherokee Indians. From the tiny natural opening on the side of the mountain, the cave expands into a series of huge rooms. Nearly a mile from the entrance, in a room now known as “The Council Room,” a wide range of Indian artifacts including pottery, arrowheads, weapons, and jewelry have been found, testifying to the use of the cave by the Cherokees.
