    Leaving Vick Town, Tourist Bus continued to drive on Highway 1. Just on the way back, heading for Reykjavik to the Selyaram River, turning left after crossing the bridge into Highway 249 is today's last attraction, rated as the most photographed famous "Selyaram Falls". Selyaran Falls is a 60-metre vertical waterfall in southwestern Iceland. There is a path behind the waterfall, through which you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the waterfall. If Scola Falls is a tall and beautiful man, Selyaran Falls is a beautiful lady with graceful appearance. From behind the huge water curtain cave waterfall to enjoy different scenery lines, night is coming, the horizon is unpredictable, the sky color becomes so strange and mysterious. The Selyalan Falls, as well as the most famous Huangguoshu Falls in China, can be seen from behind, but the feeling is different. Compared with the two, each has its own merits, and the scenery feels different, just like Chinese and Western food are inseparable. The Icelandic sky in the twilight is so fascinating that it gives people a kind of unfathomable, as if they had come to another planet.

    Seljalandsfoss said on the Internet that there was a cave behind the curtain and I could go in, but I didn't have time to go in and my shoes didn't fit. In fact, I didn't feel much about the waterfall.

    From Forest Falls to Seryalan Falls, also known as Ranch Falls, is another popular waterfall on the southern coast of Iceland, with a drop of 63 meters, 3 meters higher than Forest Falls. The most special feature of the Selyaran Falls is the secret inside the waterfall. There is a path on both sides, along which you can walk behind the waterfall and take pictures of the spectacular scenery from a unique perspective. It is considered to be one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Iceland. Unfortunately, when we arrived, it was snowy and windy. The waterfall was wet and slippery. Considering the safety of people and cameras, we retreated halfway. Fortunately, it stopped after ten minutes of snow. It was also a pleasure to take pictures for our little friends.

    Today, I finally experienced the bad weather in Iceland. I was about to be blown away by the wind. On the way, a few yards of foreigners were able to stand firm and even the camera could not be lifted. These pictures were taken with my life. PS was supposed to see aurora tonight, probably because the weather could not see [tears] [tears] [tears]

    The Apple Mac screen is it! The most special feature of the Selyaran Falls is its secret. There is a path in the lower layer of the waterfall, along which you can walk to the back of the waterfall and take pictures of the spectacular scenery from a unique perspective. Because it is very close to the waterfall, the spray will be super large and it is easy to wet your clothes! It is considered one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Iceland.

    Seljalandsfoss translated into Chinese, the most distinctive feature of the Seljalan Falls is that there is a path around the back of the Falls to enjoy, we naively think that we can also see different scenery. From Highway 1, hundreds of meters away, you can see the waterfall pouring down from the top of the hill, which is very close to the highway. We weren't surprised to see this snow and ice scene, but we just thought that the wind and snow on the south coast were so big. When we arrived at the waterfall, we happened to meet some Taiwanese students going out. We asked them about the road behind the waterfall. They told us that the road was too dangerous because it was covered with ice. Ga? Is it not the right time for us to come again? But it's no problem to see the pictures that people sent in March. When we came near the waterfall, we could not see any road behind it, only snow and ice. The water fog splashed by the waterfall was so great that the camera lens was covered with water droplets that it had to be wiped constantly. The ground dripped into ice and was unusually slippery. On the side of the waterfall, there is indeed a way up the hill. A thick layer of ice can be seen on the steps. I wore the skid-proof sleeve I bought at the geyser yesterday and tried to walk up. I could not help skidding. Little B called me back as soon as he was greedy for life and afraid of death. Failing to climb from this side, we decided to try the other side of the waterfall. This side of the staircase, at first because of the skid-proof sleeve, that is still feasible, we carefully climb up. Who knows, the more slippery, to the top of the stairs, the viewing platform is a large piece of ice, not even a crack or pit, even if the slippery cover can not grasp the ground, we almost squat on the ground and slip past. On the balustrade of the viewing platform, two rows of ice are hung densely. Well, it's really a different view. Climbing up and down here to take some pictures is the real challenge. I dragged the railing all the way and dared not let go. I skidded many times. I was very careful that my dirty was stimulated by many things. We continued our journey at 11 o'clock. At this time, the sunshine is just right, the blue sky against the snow mountain, especially fresh, is the beautiful scenery on Highway 1. Legend has it that the road condition of Highway 1 is very good. It can drive quickly without obstacles and is very conducive to driving. I think it's still seasonal. As we have done this time, the condition of the road surface is basically as follows. In fact, it is not very important how the original condition of the road is, because it is all covered with ice. And the wind on the south bank is bigger than that in the mountains. We are not small four-wheel-drive cars. Sometimes we can't drive too fast because of the wind and the slippery road surface. Interestingly, sometimes a gust of wind swept across the road, like white quicksand.

    It's like punching in every year. I boarded a land cruiser that I didn't drive with Liujing, and waited in the wind-blown ramshackle car for Hippy Wood to come back in the rain... My God is frozen to death!

    Seliyalan Falls is the largest fall in Reykjavik. The beauty of this waterfall is that it can go around the back of the waterfall and pat outside. It feels a little like the water curtain hole in Journey to the West. Although the roar can be heard from afar, it is so beautiful and shocking to see that it will be deeply subdued before it comes near.

    Located in the southern part of southwestern Iceland, about 30 kilometers west of Skogar, the Selyaran River has a vertical height of 60 meters. Behind the waterfall, there is a path at the bottom of the cliff for tourists to cross.

    Icelandic waterfalls can be classified as beautiful and charming, with the green backing of mountains to win, less than 70 meters high and not wide, but can turn to the waterfall after a walk, a little water curtain hole feeling. The ground is slippery. Be careful.
