This is just amazing to me. I never even heard of such a thing. Almost looks unreal.








"But of course, it’s not a real river. It’s just a layer of hydrogen sulphide"
Even tho, efore I die, im going to make it my goal to dive there and witness it in person


Here's the Link ; www.jesad.com...

That is absolutely breath-taking.
I envy those folks taking the pictures, must be such a mind blowing sight.

And hey, if you take that diving trip, send me a U2U, I'll go

Oh you got it, it'll be like that movie "Bucket List" with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson

I was prepared to bash the tittle of this thread but once I saw the pictures, all I can say is that looks pretty trippy. there is NO WAY IN HELL I would want to go into the hydrogen sulfide, though

Yeah, wonder what it feels like, its obviously not dangerous since a diver seems to be in it.

Cool and nice find. It looks like a sci-fi movie or something.
It makes me think of that underwater lake in the Carribean, that's full of super-salinated water.

Here is the footage from a documentary done in the Gulf of Mexico of an underwater lake made of methane, with a plethora of new species. (sorry I don't know how to embed the video, but it is the second one on this site: www.geekologie.com...)

Awesome footage.
Looks like the ocean's tide coming in.

the ocean is very mysterious.

S & F

I've heard of such a thing but never saw it before.
Thank you.


Planet Earth rocks!
Maybe we should take better care of it


Ahh who am I kidding.

The original web link appears to be a bit misleading. The water is 200 feet deepest at the deepest point in the cenote. The top 100 feet is freshwater. Under that is salt water. In between is a layer containing hydrogen sulfide. It mixes with water to form sulfic acid. Hydrogen sulfide has the rotten egg smell.

Cenote Angelita

Hydrogen sulfide is dangerous to breath.

Mexico's Villa Luz Cave

Another cave with even greater doses of acid is Mexico's Villa Luz Cave. In Villa Luz sulfuric acid forms from rotten-egg-smelling hydrogen sulfide gas that bubbles up in springs. But acidity is no problem to the bacteria that have evolved to live in its depths. In fact, hydrogen sulfide gas provides chemical energy that feed bacteria — just like in deep-sea hydrothermal vent communities.


This cave requires people entering it to bring their own air and be completely covered up.
