The Most Colorful River In The World
- 2010/02/10(Wed) -



 海外のサイトを見ていたら こんなにカラフルな川を みつけました。 「パラダイスに逃げた川」 「世界で最も美しい川」 「5色の川」と呼ばれていました。  
  場所は南米コロンビアの マカレナの町の近くです。 これはコケや藻の花です。 孤立した川の一部分に 乾湿季節の間の短い間に、 水位がちょうどいい時、藻とコケの多くの種類は 色のまばゆい花を咲かせます。 旅行者の交通の影響に対する懸念とともに、 地域でゲリラ活動のため、 数年の間観光客は行けませんでした。 しかし、2009年に訪問客に再開されました。 認可された経路で行く事ができます。 南米も行ってみたいな~ と、思いました。  ABBA♪I.have.a.dream  





The Most Colorful River In The World

The river shown in the photographs is the Ca簽o Cristales, which is located near the town of La Macarena in Columbia , South America . The river, world famous for its colorful display, has been called "the river that ran away to paradise", "the most beautiful river in the world" and "the river of five colours".

During Colombia 's wet season, the water flows fast and deep, obscuring the bottom of the river and denying the mosses and algae that call the river home the sun that they need. And during the dry season there is not enough water to support the dazzling array of life in the river. But during a brief span between the wet and dry seasons, when the water level is just right, the many varieties of algae and moss bloom in a dazzling display of colors. Blotches of amarillo , blue, green, black, and red - and a thousand shades in between - coat the river.

The part of the river where the colourful blooms occur is quite isolated and is not accessible by road. Adventurous tourists can now fly into La Macarena and then make their way to to the river site on foot as part of guided tours. The site was effectively closed to tourists for several years because of guerrilla activity in the region along with concerns about the impact of unregulated tourist traffic. However, the site was reopened to visitors in 2009.
So far, some 1,000 people have visited Ca簽o Cristales, including around 100 foreign tourists.
The tours will follow four clearly marked and authorized paths and one is no longer permitted to stay overnight or cook, as this was ruining the area previously.
