Caption: Rock terrace, Hierve el Agua, Oaxaca state, Mexico. This site includes waterfall-like rock formations or curtains that rise many metres from the valley below to a set of artificial and natural pools on a shelf looking out over the surrounding mountains. The water rises from hot springs and deposits these calcium carbonate mineral rock formations.
