Visitors flock to Devil's Bath in New Zealand

This unique and brightly colored natural wonder might look pretty, but you definitely don't want to swim in it.
Situated in New Zealand's Wai-O-Tapu region, this bizarre pool of bright green water looks almost too colorful to be real, but while it is certainly no fake, it is also rather dangerous.

Its color comes - not from algae - but from hydrogen sulfide gases, ferrous salts and iron in the water.
It also stinks - really badly - of a combination of rotten eggs and sewerage.

Despite the foul stench emanating from it, the appropriately titled 'Devil's Bath' is a popular tourist attraction, with thousands flocking each year to experience the area's volcanic wonders.

Suffice to say, however, that jumping into the green water for a swim would be a very bad idea indeed as the water is so acidic that it is capable of quite literally melting your skin off.
