Have you ever seen something in nature that made you do a double take? Well, outside the city of Cajamarca in northern Peru, there is a spectacular sight that you cannot miss—a water feature called the Waterfall of the Bride resembles the form of a bride wearing a veil and dress.
This waterfall, which is 55 feet tall and flows down the cliffside, is made in such a way that it seems as though a someone is leaning against the dark rock. Current white water runs through the grooves in the stone in an organic pattern that curls in different directions. As a result, the waterfall has the appearance of a bride looking over her shoulder while wearing a full-skirted wedding gown and a veil that is draped across her upper body.
Since the video went viral, internet users have been spreading the word about the undiscovered attraction by posting images and videos of the waterfall on social media. One internet user praised the beauty of God’s creation. Another person remarked on how lovely Mother Nature is.
While this waterfall is certainly unique, it is not the only landmark to be compared with a bride and her veil. According to several waterfalls across the world that are compared to the color and shape of the veil, this mirage is apparently rather common. Even so, it seems unique when you observe the running water actively forming this living image.
