Hi guys, welcome to ‘Wonderful World’ Part II. For those who don’t know, Wonderful World series talks about world mysteries, strange things that happen around the world, and the beauty within it. It is also a great opportunity to discover unique places that you might be interested to visit in the future. Today’s topics include: the Dwarf village, the Twin town, the rainbow river, and the haunted forest.
♥ The Dwarf Village in Yangsi, China♥
At least 40% of the people residing in Yangsi village are dwarfs. The average height for these dwarfs are from 2 ft. 1 to 3 ft. 10. These were all born and raised in the village. Many scientists have carried out studies to discover what is behind this phenomenon. They have studied the water, soils and grains of Yangsi village hoping to find a conclusion to this unsolved mystery but failed to determine the cause behind this condition. They believe that the reason for this rare condition was because years ago, an unknown disease struck the village and it affected the height of the villagers (mainly children between the ages 5 and 7). These children just stopped growing and remained the same height for the rest of their lives.
♥ The Twin Town in Kodinhi, India ♥
Another unsolved mystery related to humans could be the case of the Kodinhi town, it has more than 220 sets of twins born to just 2,000 families. This is far from normal as the statistics indicate that this town has got more than six times as many twin born than the global average.
I should probably move to this town since I’ve always wanted twins 😂.
♥ Rainbow River in Colombia (Caño Cristales) ♥
This river in Colombia is the only rainbow river in the world that consists of five colours (shades of red, blue, yellow, orange and green in a vibrant natural display). The strangest fact about the Liquid Rainbow is that it only changes to these colours at a certain time of the year.
Macarenia clavier is a picky endemic aquatic plant which requires precise conditions such as: the right water level and the right amount of sunlight. Therefore, during January to May (dry season) the river is closed to visitors as the plants lose their colour due to hibernation. This plant species is the reason why the river turns into a rainbow full of vibrant colours.
♥ The Hoia Baciu Forest ♥
This forest is known to be one of the most haunted forests in the world. It is situated in Cluj-Napoca, Romania and it covers an area of over 250 hectares. It has been said that a lot of paranormal activities and unexplainable events take place in Hoia Baciu, this includes: ghosts sightings, UFOs and faces appearing in photographs that were not visible with the naked eye. Furthermore, when visitors go to this forest, they often feel anxious as if someone is watching them, and the vegetation looks very bizarre with the weird shaped trees as shown in the photographs.
