Gaube Lake is a lake in the French Pyrenees, in the department of the Hautes-Pyrénées, near the town of Cauterets. The lake is situated in an altitude of 1725m (5660ft), an egg-shaped form stretching itself along a north-south axis in the valley of Gaube. This steep-sided valley is located at the foot of the Vignemale (3298m / 10820ft). The top end of the valley leading to the lake is closed off by the north face of the Vignemale, the culminating point of the mountain range on the border with Spain.
