The world is full of landscapes and natural wonders that you have probably never experienced before. Even if you see yourself as an experienced traveller, there are probably only a handful of places you’ve actually seen up close in the grand scheme of things. It’s easy to forget just how vast and varied our great planet really is. So maybe it’s time for you to get out there and see a few more of those natural landscapes that stand out from the rest and that you’ve missed thus far. Read on to get some ideas for places to see first.
Yuanyang Rice Terraces
The rice terraces of Yuanyang are so elegantly beautiful that you might find yourself wanting to stay and linger for a long time while you stare at them. I know I do! It’s surely one of the most peaceful and relaxing places on the face of the earth, and you can see why so many people want to head there to experience it first-hand.
There are well-worn trekking paths you can take through the intricate world of Cappadocia. But you can make your own way around the region if you want to as well. It’s the kind of place that rewards exploration because it’s essentially a rocky terrain that has been made into a town by carving the rock and creating underground areas and buildings. It’s incredibly impressive when you see it up close.
Zabriskie Point, Death Valley
Don’t let the name of Death Valley put you off visiting because it’s a visually impressive range of mud slopes and small cracks and crevasses that can be explored. I remember doing a book report on Death Valley eons ago and being completely amazed at all the beauty that this area holds. Zabriskie Point is where it’s most impressive, and there was even a movie made there with the same name in the 1970s. It was made from the residue of a river that’s long since disappeared, making its terrain ripe for exploration.
Climbing one of the most impressive and biggest mountains on the planet is one hell of a thing to be able to boast about. So if you really want to challenge yourself and push your body to its limits, it’s definitely worth thinking about whether you could make it to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro. What’s stopping you from making this happen? Travel companies like Kandoo Adventures can help you, and when you see the stunning views at the peak, you’ll know it was all worthwhile.
Yellowstone National Park
The geothermal activity found in Yellowstone National Park is the main thing that makes it so visually interesting. The orange, blue and green waters that you’ll find in the park are simply stunning, and they’re all the stranger for being located in pocket surrounded by subalpine woods with some of the most impressive trees you’ll find anywhere in North America. It’s definitely one of America’s finest natural landscapes.
There are so many fantastic places the world over; these travel ideas will all take your breath away and each of them is entirely natural. The man made world can be impressive, but never quite as impressive as what mother nature has already handed to us, so be sure to explore at least some of these landscapes.
