One Vision - One Vibration





The river shown in the photographs is the Caño Cristales, which is located near the town of La Macarena in Columbia, South America. The
river, world famous for its colourful 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 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 Caño 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.
