Have you ever seen clouds flowing down a mountain like a waterfall? No, right? Well, you can witness this magic happening with your eyes in Aizawl, the capital of Mizoram.
Yes, you heard it right. Northeast India is a treasure trove of natural beauty and this is no different. In a video shared by one Facebook user called Aziz Barbhuiya on November 22nd, 2019, it is seen that a stream of clouds is flowing down a mountain which gives a perfect illusion of a waterfall.
The 46-second long video has gone viral and it has managed to gain 5.7k likes and 11k shares. Netizens called the view in the video mesmerizing.
Earlier when the video surfaced on Twitter and YouTube, it garnered tons of comments as many were mesmerized watching nature’s beauty.
Well, the video has intrigued people in various ways, but the question remains, how clouds can flow from a mountain?
These kinds of clouds are called Orographic clouds that are commonly known as “waterfall clouds.” The clouds form when wind cools as it rises to flow over the raised ground.
The atmospheric conditions need to be stable and need a steady airstream that has picked up moisture from flowing over a sea or lake to form Orographic clouds.
Definitely a breathtaking view!
