Earth is weird place that contains multiple adventurous and wonderous things within it. Although lots of natural spots are being discovered daily, there is still a lot more to discover! Waterfalls are one of the best places to spend our time jovially. Even though we all have an outlook for waterfalls, about what it will look like, there are some exceptions. Here, we have listed some of the weird waterfalls for you.


1.     The underwater Waterfall - Mauritius

The underwater waterfall - Mauritius

This is not an actual waterfall but a magnificent illusion located in the southwestern coast of Le Morne Peninsula in the turquoise lagoon. Even though it's not water, the optical illusion is created by the perpetual movement of sand and slit deposits. When we see from above this will look like a massive underwater waterfall falling into the ocean. Various shades (green, blue and white) of marine topography give a three-dimensional view and increase the beauty of the underwater waterfall. Although it's an optical illusion, its beauty captures the people all around the world.

This iconic, wonderful natural spot in Hasavu Canyon Creek is located in Arizona. The 37-meter Hasavu waterfall falls into a crystal-clear, wide pool with bright blue-green water. Calcium carbonate and magnesium occur naturally in the water. The magnesium gives a blue hue to the water, creating this topographical wonder. When we go deep into the pool where magnesium content reduces and calcium carbonate content rises, we can see a spectrum of blue colour. Contrasting against the red rocks of Canyon, this gives a scenic beauty to the Hasavu waterfall. Millions of people admire this bluish waterfall.

4.     Iguazo Falls

This semi-circular waterfall of 80 meters height and 2,700 meters diameter, is located in the border between Argentina and Brazil. This wide waterfall system is made of 275 waterfalls spanning across 2.7 km. It was included in the world heritage list in 1984. In Tupi and Guarani language   the term Iguaz├║ means ‘Great Waters’.  If you wish to see and feel the waterfalls, then Argentina side best suits you, as it contains two viewpoints. Brazil, on the other hand, offers a multi-dimensional head-over view. If you want to have a helicopter ride, Brazil side is the best choice for you. Moreover, this waterfall is unique because of the flora and fauna found there.

As the name itself implies, this shocking, and somewhat creepy sight in East Antartica╩╝s McMurdo Dry Valleys, resembles blood slowly pouring out. However, it isn’t actually made of blood. Nor is it simply water, discoloured by algae, as the scientists first thought. This phenomenon is created when hyper saline water trapped underground, away from light, oxygen, and heat, comes out and reacts with oxygen in the air, forming this surprising colour!

6.     Glowing Horsetail – Yosemite

This breath-taking natural phenomenon occurs in February of every year for only 10 days, and lasting for a few minutes each day. This waterfall is located in the Yosemite Valley in California. The waterfall glows an orange colour when it is backlit by the sunlight in the evenings during sunset. This waterfall looks like  lava falling from an active volcano. This rare phenomenon is determined by several factors: clear sky, haze or minor cloudiness and availability of water. People see the glowing waterfall as the ‘glowing horsetail’. This is truly a wonder of nature!
