Photographer Olivier Grunewald has taken wonderful photos of the beautiful ‘Rainbow River’.
The Cano Cristales is a small river of five colours that attracts tourists around the world to Colombia every year.
During the summer months, colourful plants blossom under the surface to transform the waters into the ‘river of five colours’.
The small, beautiful river located in the Macarena National Park is also known as ‘El rio mas bonito del Mundo’, the ‘Rainbow River’ and the ‘Escape from Paradise’ to the locals.
