For those not interested in risking their safety or their lives, there is a place that provides an amazing natural spring-fed pool to swim around and marvel at. But for those who crave mysteries and adventures this is a real hot spot for adventurers, thrill seekers and people looking to escape the heat, where one can go and swim in the blue waters.
It is called Jacob’s well and it is situated in Wimberley, Texas. The well is considered as one of the most dangerous places to dive on earth. The mouth of this breathtaking well is four meters wide in diameter with a depth of approximately ten meters. Down there, one may find a network of underwater caves within a depth of 40 meters.
While some survived their miscalculated jumps and bad injuries, there were some who could not make their way to the surface since this deep and dark black hole is not all fun and games. At least nine people have lost their lives from either attempting some kind of daredevil stunt into the seemingly endless abyss or diving below the surface and exploring the well’s intricate cave system. Over the years, human skulls, bones and diving equipment have been recovered.
Jacob’s Well will remain a mysterious wonder that continues to baffle scientists all over the world, and is still believed to be sacred ground. If you’re ever in Texas and are interested in visiting Jacob’s Well, there’s a great resource to assist you on your journey.
