The Most Beautiful River in the World


Caño Cristales is a river located in Serrania de la Marrakech in Colombia and is known worldwide because of the range of colors that it has in itself, so often described as “the most beautiful river in the world”, “the river of five colors” and “river which flows in heaven.” Why is this so, check out below!

Algae and the moss on the bottom of the river are the main “culprits” for the beautiful colors in the river. During the rainy seasons, Caño Cristales becomes deeper and flowing very strongly, thereby preventing sunlight to reach the algae. However, during dry periods, the river has no enough water for life. Still, between these two seasons, when conditions are perfect, Caño Cristales River becomes the most beautiful in the world.

Thousands shades of yellow, red, green, blue and black create a scene that leaves them breathless even indifferent bystanders.
