It was formed about 10-11 thousand years ago, as a result of the powerful shift of indigenous sandstones that broke off the southern slope of the Red Mountain and blocked the ancient valley of the Synevyr stream.
The water level in the lake is constantly changing: it decreases in winter and raises in spring and summer, and then falls again in the autumn, in accordance with the influx of water from three permanent streams and temporary - during the period of intense melting of snow and showers. The amplitude of the fluctuation of the water level in the lake reaches 4.0-4.5 m., accordingly the area of the water mirror varies from 4.45 to 7.58 hectares. The largest depth is from 19 to 23.5 m.
The speed of the lake is provided by the Synevyr stream, flowing 350 m west of the lake under a landslide 60 m below the level of its ridge mark. The water in Synevyr Lake is fresh. Its temperature is quite low even in the summer and is 10-15⁰C.
