This is really amazing! A "twin" of the Amazon River flows beneath this huge basin. Researchers at the Brasilian National Observatory found evidence of an underground river of 6,000 km long that runs down the Amazon River, at a depth of 4000 meters with a flow of 3,000 m3 / s, like the Nile River! Its name is Rio Hamza, like the resercher that discover it, Valiya Hamza, .


More we dig, minus we learn about our planet...

I read somewhere (article on net) that there is an underground river under the Nile too, but that statement was all I could find. No other info available.

It's not a river as such, it's simular to that "ocean" which was found, which is basically wet porous rock.

BBC link on the river

A subterranean river said to be flowing beneath the Amazon region of Brazil is not a river in the conventional sense, even if its existence is confirmed. The "river" has been widely reported, after a study on it was presented to a Brazilian science meeting last week. But the researchers involved told BBC News that water was moving through porous rock at speeds measured in cm, or inches, per year - not flowing.

Thanks for your rapid aclaration with in the first page of the thread, avoiding the spread of a misleading concept.

Don't blame the OP, blame the source.
