Waterfall-like Rock Formations in Mexico

hierve el agua

Located in the central valleys of Oaxaca, Mexico, Hierve el Agua, looks very much like a waterfall stuck in time, but the cliff is a mineral formation that was created over thousands of years. These formations are created by fresh water springs, as the water scurries over the cliffs, the excess minerals are deposited, much in the same manner that stalactites are formed in caves.  Atop the cliffs are turquoise bathing pools that offer incredible views of the surrounding landscape.
