Cascade, of unrivaled beauty, due to macarenia claviger and giant pots


Caño Cristales is commonly known as the « five-colored river » or « the most beautiful river in the world ». It owes this nickname to the plants (they are not algae) endemic called Macarenia clavigera of the family Podostemaceae which, from September to November, give it a green, red and yellow coloring.                                                                                                                                               [Wikipedia]

Normally the river Caño Cristales is covered with red, because the aquatic plant blooms and the Sun produces this color that sometimes turns orange or purple. When the Sun does not reach the plant, Macarenia Clavigera is green.
