Nine unusual waterfalls in different countries

No one knows how many waterfalls are on the earth. Perhaps this is because sometimes it is difficult to say: is there really a waterfall in front of us, that is, just water falling from a height, and not something else, some of them look very unusual.
And even what waterfall is considered unusual, no one knows for sure either. Therefore, we do not call our selection “World Top 10” or “World Waterfall Rating”, but simply talk about ten waterfalls in different countries that seemed unusual to us.

Here, as they say, you can’t argue: when water painted in blood-red color gushes from ice rocks, this spectacle is unusual and even fantastic, reminiscent of horror films.

Bama – the abode of the centenarians in China

“To live to be a hundred years old!”, – this phrase has long been steadily associated rather with some, not the most thoughtful, feast toasts than with reality. Nevertheless, the theme of longevity has always excited minds and hearts. Centennial old people have always been revered and respected, trying to adopt their lifestyle in the hope of getting an equally long century. But above all, the reason for such a reverent attitude towards centenarians has always been the exceptional rarity of this phenomenon.

Bama – the abode of the centenarians in China
That is why one place on earth is so amazing, where centennial centenarians are, if not commonplace, then certainly not a sensation. The name of this place is the Bama Yao Autonomous County of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region of the People’s Republic of China.
