Endorheic Lakes

Endorheic lakes are bodies of water that do not flow into the sea. Endorheic lakes are usually in the interior of a body mass, far from an ocean. Their watersheds are often confined by natural geologic land formations such as a mountain range, cutting off water egress to the ocean. (wiki)
