Watch: Ever seen 'Red River' in Peru? Old video amazes viewers on social media
An old video of the Red River in Peru is making rounds on social media again and has left the internet mesmerised after watching it.
Nature never fails to amaze people with its magnificent beauty. With its snow-covered mountains, breathtaking waterfalls and beautiful rivers, people just get stunned by seeing the beauty of mother nature.
To add to the list, we have found one more mesmerising spot that every human will wish to visit after watching it. A video of the 'Red River' in Peru is going viral, and this video has left the internet mesmerised after watching it.
In the video, we can see red-coloured water gushing through the valleys of South America. The river in Cusco, Peru, is brick red in colour. You might be wondering how the water turned red.
Well, the red colour phenomenon is caused due to soil erosion from different mineral deposits that are present at the vivid strata of the mountains and valleys. The red sandstone, which is rich in iron oxide, gives the red watercolor.
It is reportedly said that the place is more beautiful when it rains, as the mineral-rich sedimentary rocks are swept down the mountainside, giving the water crimson or pink colour. Take a look at the mesmerising video:
The video was shared on a Twitter page named fascinating, and it also captioned the video by saying that the red river is from Peru. The video gathered 3.7 million views and around 85K likes in just one day of being online.
