The thought of travel excites me! I love to experience new places, see new things, understand new cultures, and open my mind to a world outside of my own. Travelling is not high on everyone’s to-do list, but there’s no denying the impact it can have on anyone who decides to do it. There are natural wonders out there that need to be experienced!
Natural wonders are sceneries that can’t be experienced in everyday life. Everyone has heard of the 7 natural wonders of the world, but there are so many other great scenic views to experience. I am an avid traveler, and the natural wonders I share below are at the top of my bucket list. Check out a few natural wonders everyone should see in their life time!
Playa del Amor, Mexico
There’s a hidden beach in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico called Playa del Amor. Essentially a cave with a hole to let the sunlight in and a beach for the bottom, this “beach of love” is one of the most amazing treasures of Mexico.
General Carrera Lake, Chile
Noted as one of the most “picturesque” lakes in the world, the General Carrera Lake bordered by Argentina and Chile will not disappoint. With marble walls that reflect blue from the water, you won’t find anything like this lake anywhere else.
Antelope Canyon, Arizona
Located right here in the United States, Antelope Canyon in Arizona features beautiful canyons that reflect different colors depending on the time of day. Bright blues, deep purples, and luscious pinks are what you can expect with this canyon.
Iguazu Falls, Argentina
Located between Argentina and Brazil, the Iguazu Falls is the world’s largest waterfall system. With over 175 different waterfalls to experience, Iguazu Falls may put Niagara Falls to shame. It truly is a natural wonder to experience.
Table Mountain, South Africa
I am fortunate enough to say that I have seen Table Mountain (and taken a tram ride up the mountain), and there is nothing like it! A flat mountain with the ability to see the entire cape of the most southern point of the continent – Cape Town, South Africa.
Jeita Grotto, Lebanon
The Jeita Grotto in Lebanon is a series of caves spanning for miles. The caves were inhabited in prehistoric times and is now a major cultural symbol of the nation. The caves also provide drinking water to millions in the country.
Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia
The Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia is the world’s largest salt flat, spanning over 4,000 miles. Salt flats are known around the world but experiencing the Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia will certainly top them all. The reflection is unreal!
Hirosaki Castle Botanical Garden, Japan
Cherry blossoms are a wonder of their own. Imagine seeing over 2500 cherry blossom trees at once? The Hirosaki Castle Botanical Garden in Japan is one of the best cherry blossom locations in the world. The trees even change colors in the months of April and May.
