Beauty of liquid rainbow Colombia -The River of Five Colors

For nearly half the year, there is nothing remarkable at all about this particular river, but from July through November a phenomena occurs that would leave one to believe that Mother Nature has hand painted this pristine locale.

 

Over millennia, the waterfalls have eroded cavernous holes into the rock, and created deep pools into the riverbed. These deep, clear pools in the middle of the otherwise plant-life covered river are a remarkable place for swimming-inclined sightseers who want to take in the surrounding sights and sounds of the River of Five Colors in a more intimate way.


Another unique feature of this particular river is a complete lack of wildlife within the waters. Though there are some amphibian and reptile species in the area, the river itself is lacking any fish or mollusk populations, as the river’s solid rock surface and bed lack nutrients necessary for fauna to survive. Nature-wary visitors know that they will be unfettered by any unwanted creatures sharing the relaxing pool.

Get Unforgettable Diving Experience in The Raja Ampat Islands in Indonesia

If you are already a seasoned diver or you are new to diving but have the budget and the desire to experience scuba diving to its utmost pleasure then you have to visit the famous "Four Kings".

Known to have the most richest coral reef life in world today, the so called "Four Kings" or Raja Ampat is located in the northwest end of the Bird's Head Peninsula in the island of New Guinea the West Papua's province in Indonesia. Its huge popularity made this beautiful place a candidate to be the first marine Unesco World Heritage Site.

It has been the topic of discussions in diving enthusiast's forums worldwide and the subject of fascination for the serious scuba diver who wants to really experience the amazing beauty of the Raja Ampat's coral reefs. If the popularity reaches an all time high, it may well be a Mecca for divers of the world to visit at least once in their life time similar to the Hajj for the Muslims.
Thousand of bookings are made in travel agents to visit this place from tourists in US and UK with one goal in mind and that is to dive and see the coral reefs that have been so popular in many diving forums these last few years. In connection with this, we are also expected to see a lot of inquires and requests for travel and diving insurance.
Although these people already have their basic insurance protection, they are now being more informed of getting specific insurance for divers when they go do their passion and sport. Diving insurance does not only cover a person from accidents that could happen in their diving escapades but can also cover their diving equipment as well such as their compressors, etc. Especially if one will take a diving trip to the Four Kings, you would be crazy do scuba dive here and not bring your underwater camera! What a spectacular view you will miss to document if you didn't bring your camera with you. Diving insurance can also protect and cover your camera as well, saving you thousands of dollars in case something unwanted happens to your camera underwater.
Truly, the Raja Ampat is one of today's most exciting places to take a vacation and dive to your hearts content with memories that you will remember through out your life.
