Today Tue 3 Jan 2017 2353 The highest mountain in the world with a foot on the bottom of the ocean is Mauna Kea in Hawaii. Its height 10203 m but only 4205 m is above sea level. Jacob's well Jacob's Well is a tourist attraction which is an inexhaustible karst spring located in the US state of Texas. It stems from the most extensive underwater cave in Texas. The well is about 10 meters deep and quite dangerous for divers.

Jacob's well in Texas has an entrance of 4 meters in diameter he then descends vertically for about ten meters below it diverges into several chambers with narrow necks covered with thick sludge total length is about forty meters. Now a source who previously considered the eternal starts to dry out but a few millennia ago, the well of Jacob was represented the likeness of a geyser and a powerful flow of artesian water was beaten to a height of 10 meters. The lower aquifer resulted in a reduction of the water level in the well. Since the second half of the twentieth century began the history of the study of caves by diving scuba divers. Now Jacob's well is a dangerous place for diving in the USA as were the deaths of the dives we know that 8 divers died while diving in the dangerous cave.

After that, in 1980, to prevent accidents, the entrance to the well was blocked with the installation of a lattice of reinforcement and concreting one of the chambers of the cave but is stopped by curious divers for a while and all these add-ons were eventually removed. Now tourists often visit this source and even dive into Jacob's well because he is one of the most significant natural geologic treasures in Texas. There is no review.
