The 11 most incredible natural spectacular places of the planet in 11 photos that will make you want to see them in person. Our world is full of wonders: incredible geysers, mythical caves and rock formations in a sea of colors … We have found the 11 most spectacular places in the world. True “miracles of Nature”.
11 Great blue hole, Belize
Completely natural but no less spectacular is the Great Blue Hole which is off the coast of Belize and has a diameter of 300 meters and a depth of 125 meters. Scuba lovers are in love with this incredible place of intense blue waters.
10 The colorful mountains of Zhangye Danxia, China
The impressive colorful mountains of Zhangye Danxia are known for their colorful and oddly shaped formations. The south and northeast of China is full of prominent rock formations with very accentuated reliefs that are precisely known as “Danxia”, but Zhangye’s is the most spectacular of them all. The landscape seems totally from another planet.
9 Icebergs with colored stripes, Antarctica
Are stripes fashionable? Well, it seems that even icebergs know it. Stripes are layers of seawater that, thanks to minerals and organic matter, change color when they are frozen. A strange but truly unique show.
8 The door to the Hell of Darvaza, Turkmenistan
The “Door to Hell” is the perfect name for the ardent crater of Darvaza. This wonder of nature did not occur completely naturally: during a search for gas by Soviet geologists in the 1970s, the ground sank leaving a hole 60 meters in diameter and 20 meters deep. In order not to allow poisonous gases to evaporate, scientists had the brilliant idea of setting fire to this gas-filled cave, convinced that the fire would go out in a matter of days … 40 years later the crater is still burning, like a real door to the Avern. Nature can not be tamed!
7 Étretat and the Coast of Albatre, France
Étretat is a coastal resort located next to the spectacular Albatre coast. Kilometers of chalk cliffs that rise more than 100 meters above sea level and that offer us beautiful landscapes and fairytale rock formations, like this natural arch that sinks into the turquoise blue of the sea.
6 Bryce Canyon, Utah, United States
The Bryce Canyon is located at altitudes ranging from 2,400 to 2,700 meters and is part of a Natural Park that protects these incredible pyramidal formations. A visit here will not leave you at all indifferent. As a curiosity, the formations receive the sympathetic name of “Hoodoos”.
5 Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia
No, this photo does not have any kind of trickery. What your eyes see is the largest salt desert in the world, with a total area of 10,582 square kilometers. Thanks to its cold and warm climate, it has the appearance of an icy lake in which it reflects the landscape, giving rise to dream images. There are approximately 11 layers of salt with thicknesses that vary between less than one meter and 10. Spectacular!
4 The white waterfall of Pamukkale, Turkey
The famous natural terraces of this “Cotton Castle” (which is what Pamukkale means in Turkish) are currently being restored because in the last decade tourism exploded them so much that they had deteriorated. Now, about 10 years after the “rescue plan” this petrified waterfall once again presents a fairy tale aspect. Of course, the restoration has not finished and the visits are more controlled. It would be so sad that this Unesco World Heritage site disappeared, so better admire them from a distance.
3 The stone spheres of Moeraki, New Zealand
These curious sphere-shaped formations can be seen in Otago, on the South Island of New Zealand and are responsible for a truly unique beach landscape. Some look like eggs of prehistoric animals, others are hollow inside and some reach 2 meters in diameter. The Maori legends tell that they are the remains of the fishing baskets of eels, pumpkins and potatoes that arrived at the coast after the wreck of the mythical canoe Araiteuru.
2 The Giant’s Causeway, Northern Ireland
The Giant’s Waterfall is made up of some 40,000 basalt columns that are 60 million years old and give shape to a spectacular place on the coast of Northern Ireland. This wonder of nature was formed by the relatively rapid cooling of the lava in a crater or volcanic caldera and today is a World Heritage Site. As a curiosity, on the island of Staffa on the Scottish coast there are very similar formations.
1 The Cave of Reed Flute, Guangxi, China
This natural limestone cave is an underground paradise filled with stalactites, stalagmites and columns. But it is also home to creatures like some birds and plants. The Reed Flute Cave is an attraction, and more if you see it illuminated. A feast of colors and shapes for the eyes!
