It is TRUE that the waterfall that looks like a bride is located in Peru. Called Catarata Velo de la Novia, the waterfall has become a favorite tourist attraction.
Its impressive fall of more than 50 meters high and its peculiar shape that resembles a bride makes this place unique and wonderful.
According to the wondermondo.com, the unusual shape of the waterfall was noticed in early 2018. "This is a highly unusual waterfall due to one more aspect – it comes out from a cave. Some 200 meters before the falls, the stream disappears below the ground and reappears only at the waterfall. The dissolved lime – travertine – forms a part of the details of the imaginary "dress"," it further said.
We also found several videos taken by Spanish tourists who had filmed their visit to the waterfall.
Here is the exact location of the waterfall on Google maps. We can see several photos and videos along with the street view.
Meanwhile, the video of the spectacular waterfall had been shared with claims that it is in Hong Kong while some had claimed it is in Romania. But AFP fact-check and Newsmobile.com had rubbished the claims.
Hence, it is TRUE that a waterfall in Peru looks like a bride in a white dress.
