But what could have shaped these impressive thirty-metre-high waterfalls? And why is the rock that makes them up so light?
There’s plenty to wonder about in the face of this rare and fragile geological curiosity!
The whole thing is actually the result of chemical phenomena that promote limestone deposits on vegetation. The waterfalls are fed by the waters of the Turasse, which are overflowing with this mineral substance. Projections from the waterfalls are deposited on mosses and pieces of wood, forming a white or beige crust.
The degradation of the vegetation gradually gives way to lots of little holes and gives the rock its porous texture reminiscent of a sponge. This is called tuff and is referred to as a tufous waterfall.
The interweaving of roots and curiously shaped rocks transports us into a veritable natural temple.
