In 2016, the world might seem like a very small place. You can learn anything you need to know instantly, or video chat with someone on the other side of the world at a moment’s notice.

But that doesn’t mean Mother Nature doesn’t have a few tricks up her sleeve. It’s one of those secrets — a river of boiling water, to be exact — that has driven and inspired geologist Andres Ruzo for most of his life.

When he was 12 years old, Ruzo’s grandfather told him about a river deep in the South American jungle where the water was so hot, it boiled at all times. After years of searching, Ruzo finally found the river. He recently wrote a book about it.

It turns out that the boiling river is actually the sacred geothermal healing site of Mayantuyacu, which is located deep within the Peruvian rainforest.

“You’re surrounded by the sounds of the rainforest,” said Ruzo.”You feel this water surging past you and plumes of vapor coming up. It’s truly a spectacular place.”

While the river is definitely boiling, there is very little known about how exactly the water is being heated. Scientific expeditions should shed some light on what’s happening.

“The planet’s gotten small, and natural wonders like this are few and far between,” said Ruzo. I don’t think I could have said it better myself.
