Hello everyone !

Caño Cristales (Colombia)

The Caño Cristales “the stream of crystals” is a river in Colombia, a tributary of the Guayabero River, located in the Serrenia de la Macarena.

The Caño Cristales is commonly known as the “river of five colors” or “the most beautiful river in the world”. It owes this nickname to the plants which, from September to November, give it a green, red and yellow color.

The geological formations of the Caño Cristales River, with sediments and rocks approximately 1.2 billion years old, combined with the abundance of aquatic plants create a unique color.

The Caño Cristales is a torrential river with many waterfalls and rapids.

At several points of its bed we find natural cavities called "devil's pots" formed by the impact of pebbles carried by the current against relatively less hard parts of the bottom.

Once these pebbles fall into one of these cavities, they gradually widen it by spinning driven by the current and banging against its walls.

Good day and good game ;)
