INDEPHEDIA.com - Beautiful river colorful Cristales Caño like a rainbow located in the Serranía de la Macarena National Park, Meta Province, Colombia. Because the algae produced in colors such as red, yellow, green to blue at the bottom of the river give a unique appearance, this river is commonly called the "Five Color River", "Pelangi Cair" or even "The Most Beautiful River in the World".

The colors in this river are caused by a large number of endemic plant species named Podostemaceae or Macarenia clavígera which are attached tightly to the rocks in places where the river has faster currents in the Serranía de la Macarena National Park.

Among the diversity of flora and fauna in the national park, most attracts the attention of tourists one of which is a plant that produces red, yellow, green to orange in the Caño Cristales River. Especially if the water in the river is so clear, it makes the colors produced by plants clearly visible.
