Incredible, breathtaking, unreal, beautiful, magical – the list of epithets is endless and still they cannot convey all the emotions of people who were lucky enough to visit the places below.
And if we take into account the fact that photographs are not always able to convey the magic of a particular place, then everyone who considers himself a traveler should feel indescribable minutes of delight. And we will tell you where to look for such beauty.
1. Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia
The Salar de Uyuni is the world’s largest salt marsh. This is a dried salt lake with an area of more than ten square kilometers. Table salt on the lake lies in a layer of two, and in some places even eight meters. After the rain, the illusion of the world’s largest mirror surface is created.
2. Zhangjiajie mountains, China
Giant rock pillars of the Zhangjiajie mountains rise near China’s Hunan province. Geologists say that earlier it was a huge sandstone. Then the elements carried away most of the sand, leaving the lonely pillars to petrify and remind with their majesty of the power of mother nature. They say that James Cameron “copied” these mountains in his film “Avatar”.
3. Dead Valley, Namibia
No, no, this is not a picture of some surrealist artist, these are real photos of Deadvlei, or as it is also called Dead Valley (Dead Valley). Perhaps the deadly heat burned out all the vegetation and living creatures, and this place was once a green and flowering forest. But now here is the most desert and part-time place of unreal beauty.
4. Sea of Stars, Vaadhoo, Maldives
As soon as the sun sets on the island of Vaadhoo, a truly fabulous night begins. After all, even the sea is strewn with stars … Science calls this phenomenon phytoplankton. And yet, getting here, you will inadvertently begin to believe in miracles and a fairy tale …
5. Santorini, Greece
Who would have thought that an island created in the 16th century as a result of a volcanic eruption could become one of the most beautiful places on Earth? This is exactly what the island of Santorini is and the Greeks are very proud of it.
6. Red Beach, Panjin, China
Red Beach is located near the province of Panjin on the Liaohe River. It got its name due to the rich red algae that cover the entire coastal zone.
No one will argue, this is truly a fabulous place.
7. Antelope Canyon, Arizona, USA
The real canyon got its name because of the unique color of its walls. Exactly such an association among the discoverers of this miracle of nature was caused by the reddish-red color of the walls – the association with the skin of an antelope. The play of light and shadow is “helped” by the bizarre shape of the canyon rocks, which has become the subject of posing for thousands of professional and amateur cameras.
8. Wilhelmstein, Germany
This strange island in Lake Steinhude called Wilhelmstein was artificially created in the 18th century by Count Wilhelm for defensive reasons. Then the fishermen on their boats delivered stones for its foundation. Initially, there were 16 islands, then they were connected. The idea of the count was a success and the island successfully held the defense. Later, a military college was established on the territory. Today, Wilhelmstein is an island museum that attracts tourists with its history, as well as its unusual shape for the island.
9. Road to Heaven, Mount Huashan, China
Extreme lovers simply must visit the most dangerous hiking trail in the world.
The Road to Heaven, the Path of Death – it is called differently, but no name can convey all the fear that it inspires.
