Cano Clijsters river is the most beautiful river in the world. Because there are a large number of algae and mosses of different types and colors on its riverbed, the river will show different colors in different areas, including green, blue, black, red, yellow, and more abundant gradients; The crystal clear river reflects the colorful moss on the riverbed and flows into the tidal pool like a kaleidoscope. It is very spectacular and beautiful. Therefore, the river is also known as the five-color river or the Rainbow River.
Such a beautiful river naturally attracts the attention of a large number of tourists, but tourists should pay attention to the fact that the wonders of the wuse River can not be seen all year round, because in the dry season, the water is insufficient and the nutrients in the water are insufficient to maintain the large-scale reproduction of algae; In the rainy season, the water is too fierce, and the algae on the riverbed will be washed away. Therefore, only between June and September, when the dry season and rainy season alternate, will the Rainbow River show colorful colors.

At the same time, it also represents a unique tradition, a tradition with a strong meaning for coffee-growing areas in the world. This heritage is located between the foothills of the Andes in Western Colombia and consists of 6 agricultural landscapes and 18 urban centers.
The coffee planting tradition of over a hundred years here is mainly manifested in the small-scale planting in the arbor forest and the unique coffee planting method adopted by local farmers to overcome the adverse effects of the alpine environment. The urban area in the landscape is mainly located on the relatively flat mountain top, and the slope below the mountain top is distributed with coffee fields. The urban buildings are mainly the colonial buildings of Antioquia influenced by Spain. The building materials used in these buildings, which are still used in some areas today, are clay mortar mixed with straw and compressed sugar cane for walls, and clay tiles for roofs.

Cartagena is a remarkable example of the architectural style of the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries. It is the most extensive and safest one in the “new world”.

12Plaza de BolivarBolivar square is in the center of Bogota, formerly known as a central square. In 1536, Spanish colonists came here, crazy Indians, and drove them out of their homes. In 1538, the Spanish rulers began to build the city of Santa Fe in Bogota on this land full of Indian blood. Today, the ruins of the city building still remain on the square Bolivar. After the founding of the Republic of great Columbia in 1819, in order to commemorate Bolivar, the founder of the Republic and the liberator of Latin America, the central square was renamed Bolivar square.
Bolivar is a famous strategist and politician in Latin America. In 1810, the armed uprising team organized by Bolivar drove the Spanish governor out of Venezuela, and he became the flag bearer for the independence and liberation of the Americas. The jubilant Bolivar statue standing on Bolivar square in Bogota was elaborately made by the famous Italian sculptor Pietro tenerani. In front of the statue, there are often flowers presented by people. The buildings with different shapes and styles around the square are magnificent. There are four fountains decorated with colored lights around the statue. At night, the square is brightly lit, and the water column from the fountain splashes everywhere. The whole square is colorful and unforgettable.
13Historic Centre of Santa Cruz de MompoxThe historical center of Santa Cruz in months is a typical colonial town along the main water area, which plays an important economic and strategic role in the integrity of the country today. Founded in 1540 on the banks of the Magdalene River, months played a very important role in the Spanish rule of North and South America. From the 16th century to the 19th century, the city gradually developed parallel to the river, and some main streets acted as river banks. When it was established, it harmoniously merged with the surrounding landscape of the city.
Most of the buildings still retain their original purposes, providing a special picture of the Spanish colonies. Each of the three squares in montpersia is decorated with a church. In addition to the religious monuments, these churches are the main witness of the local history. Many forms of brick houses in the 17th and 19th centuries had terraces and tile roofs, and the windows were decorated with metal lattices.
Although many buildings are occupied by local residents, these buildings are adjacent to the rows of shops built after the 17th century. The more comfortable houses in the city are composed of hazelwood, round blocks, and thatched roofs, and the overall layout is harmonious and delicate.
14Malpelo Fauna and Flora SanctuaryThe animal and plant reserve of Malpelo island covers an area of 857500 hectares, including the island of mapolo and the surrounding marine environment. This huge ocean park is the largest no-fishing area in the east of the tropical Pacific Ocean, providing an important living environment and a major food source for international endangered marine organisms.
More than 200 hammerhead sharks, more than 1000 silk sharks, whale sharks, and tuna are gathered in the Malpelo Island animal and plant reserve. It is especially the habitat of sharks, groupers, and sharp-billed fish, and it is one of the few places in the world where the short-nosed coarse-toothed shark can be seen. This shark has been identified as a deep-water shark.
The steep cliffs and the magnificent and colorful caves make it recognized as the world’s top diving resort. The deep sea water provides an undisturbed living environment for a large number of large carnivores and plankton, making them maintain their natural behavior.
15Cauca, R.The Cauca river is a river in Western Colombia, the largest tributary on the left bank of the Magdalena River, and the main river in Colombia. It originates from the paletara plateau of the central Cordillera mountains, flows northward through the wide and rich Cauca Valley, and passes through the canyon between the western and central Cordillera mountains. It is injected into the Magdalene River in the northwest of Mengpo, a lowland along the Caribbean coast.
The total length of the Cauca river is 1350km, the water supply, and drainage systems area is 63000 square kilometers, the estuary water flow is 2200m / s, and the area below Caseres is navigable. There is a hydropower station near Kali. The soil in the Cauca Valley is fertile and rich in grain, sugar cane, cocoa, cotton, fruit, and livestock. The slopes on both sides produce three-quarters of the country’s coffee. The Koka river is developed according to the comprehensive planning of flood control, power generation, and irrigation. The riverside scenery is beautiful. It is a good place for sightseeing. The air is fresh and you can feel the breath of nature. There are many flowers and trees on both sides of the river. It is also a good opportunity for learning. There are many birds in the trees on both sides of the river, and you can hear the gentle singing of birds at any time.
16Catedral de SalThis church is the most holy place in the heart of Colombia. It is the crystallization of hundreds of years of hard work of generations. It has all kinds of facilities, from shops, prayer rooms, and toilets to spas and cinemas. However, from the perspective of the beauty of the landscape, some people may think that it is not brilliant, but considering the hard work and historical precipitation, these landscapes are particularly precious. In the beginning, the entrance of the church was a cross scenic area, which was slightly tasteless. When I walked to the main hall of the church, I was immediately conquered by its magnificent momentum. I hope you can go to see the film introducing the history of the salt church. Only when you see it will you cherish the grandeur of the whole project. Sipakila is a small Andes town located more than 50 kilometers north of Bogota city. What makes this South American Andean plateau town famous in the world is not the beautiful scenery, the beautiful mountains, and the Madalena river that quietly surrounds the town, but a huge underground world – a magnificent underground church that can accommodate 8000 believers at the same time. The predecessor of this church is the altars set up underground by the salt miners of the Indian aborigines under colonial rule. These altars are the witness to the 400-year colonial history of the small town of siparaki
At the entrance of the salt church, there is a dummy model in a miner’s suit. Then we entered a long passage. The wall of the passage was decorated with changeable color lights and dim energy-saving lamps. Walk inward and pass several altars. The altars of the underground salt church are all simple cross shapes, creating a sacred and solemn atmosphere with colored lights. Behind those holy crosses, many of them have a huge dark underground space. When you look down on the side of the guardrail, you can see a shocking scene! The size, height, and width of those spaces can be compared with the vault space of a huge cathedral. However, they were submerged in the darkness! The depth and breadth of the space and the sense of fear brought by the darkness can only be felt when you are in the scene.
17Museo de OroThe last Sunday of each month is free. When the lucky star came, I got free museum tickets. It was indeed a worthwhile trip, especially after the explanation by the local people, I had an intuitive understanding of the various ethnic groups in Colombia. Great experience.
The gold museum is one of the must-sees in Bogota. To be honest, I can hardly remember anything after reading it. I only know that the golden eyes of the blind dog also witness the glory of the indigenous people in those years.
The ticket seems to be 4000 pesos, located near the Bolivian square. It’s free on Sunday. There were a lot of people when I went there. On the whole, I felt good. I introduced the bronze age, gold, and Indian history. At last, there was a small room full of gold, in which a valuable emerald was placed. It was the climax of the visit. However, there was a queue to visit this small room, and only a dozen people could enter it at a time.
