A beautiful once-in-a-decade cloud waterfall was caught on camera as it rolled over the top of a mountainous forest.
The clouds fell spectacularly down the mountain in Shennongjia, central China’s Hubei Province.
The weather phenomenon requires an extremely stable set of weather and environment conditions in order to take place.
These include stable air followed by heavy rainfall over a plateau surrounded by large hills
This year Shennongjia, a UNESCO world heritage site, provided the ideal conditions for the cloud waterfall to form.
Chinese tourist authorities filmed the scene and set it to some majestic choral music to promote the area, which receives millions of visitors a year.
Luckily the phenomenon lasted for several hours, allowing plenty of time for filming.
