There is not one but many mesmerising phenomenon in nature that can take our breath away - from colourful flowers to sweet fragrances to magnificent trees. But have you ever seen a tree that is more like a waterfall?

A unique phenomenon showing water flowing out of a 100-year-old tree in Southern Europe has left people in awe of nature. Videos of the breathtaking view show water flowing out like a stream from the trunk of the tree without leaves. 

“Miraculous mulberry from Dinoša is working as a spring again," reads the caption of the video on shared on Instagram. 

If you are wondering how it happens - this beautiful sight was delivered by a 100-year-old mulberry tree. This phenomenon is observed only for a few days each year, according to a BBC report. 

"For a few days each year on a meadow in Montenegro, water can be seen gushing from the trunk of a 100-year-old mulberry tree," says the BBC report. The phenomenon happens to occur in a village named Dinosa, and is a spectacular sight for anyone to witness. 

Water gushes out of mulberry trees during heavy rains, and it happens because underground springs, which flood during heavy rainfall, create a strong pressure that sends water gushing out of the trunks of mulberry trees. 

According to a local resident, the phenomenon has been happening for the last 20-25 years or more.

"This has been happening for the last 20 to 25 years, perhaps even longer. This tree is 100 years old, maybe even 150. A cavity was created in the middle and an underground spring has broken through to the crown and now this beautiful image is created," Emir Hakramaj was quoted as saying by Radio Free Europe.

This is not the only example of a beautiful phenomenon in nature - in the Estonian village of Tuhala lies a well that starts spouting water after a heavy downpour. The well is placed over an underground river, and after rain water floods the river, water pressure builds to the point that it shoots up out of the well. It can go as high as half a meter. This continues for a few days, and during this time, more than 100 liters of water can flow out every second.
