A lake in the middle of the Wright Valley, approximately 6km long as of 2015. Sweepstake Reach connects the feature to Lake Bull at the east. Since the 1990's the level of the lake has been rising, resulting in the former NZ Vanda Station being dismantled and that position now being partially underwater. Feature shown on: NZ AntTopo50-ME08
Named by the Victoria University of Wellington Antarctic Expedition (VUWAE), 1948-59. Vanda was the name of a dog, used by Dr Bull, leader of this expedition, in the British North Greenland Expedition (1952-54).
