Revised my approach, but still sticking to the theme of relatively unknown natural wonders. They say a picture is worth a thousand
words. Part 1
The Tianzi Mountains - China
The inspiration for the scenery in James Cameron's movie Avatar. These pictures barely do it justice but i wanted to show you the scale of the
mountain's. A lot more pictures here.
Skycrapers", these mountains cover an area of 67 sq kms providing a breathtaking view of peaks which rises like a pillar through out the area. At the
highest peak about 4,140 ft. Some more interesting facts and
Cat Island - Japan
This is a Nature's Wonder right? For all you cat lovers out there. Only one of a dozen cat islands, the tiny island of Aoshima has over 120 stray
cats, which outnumber humans 6 to 1. More pictures
All of the cats are incredibly beautiful and seem really healthy. They're obviously thriving here and i can only imagine the number of
cats rising. Must be fun to be a cat here.
Even more pictures.
Li River - China
I'm not sure how many times i can use the word 'breathtaking' but in this instance, it is definately appropriate. Not to be mistaken with the just as
equally beautiful Halong Bay (you should click)
in Vietnam, both of these beautiful landscapes look like a scene straight from Jurrasic Park or King Kong.
More Pictures of Li
Lençóis Maranhenses - Brazil
I would assume this is how other planets in the universe could look like. Sweeping white sand dunes stretch as far as the eye and the imagination can
see creating a surreal landscape with thousands of fresh water lagoons. Note the tiny people for scale, simply mind-blowing.
Darvaza Gas Crater - Turkmenistan
Known locally as the 'Door to Hell'. This natural gas field collapsed into a crater the size of an American football field 40 years ago. Scientists
lit it on fire to stop the methane gas from spreading, but it has been on fire ever since. Not sure how safe it would be but I would love to camp for
a night here. Some information and pictures.
Zhangye Danxia - China
Rainbow Mountain 2.0, similar to the Rainbow Mountain in the first thread but still unique and amazing in its own right, so why not? There is no
greater painter than Mother Nature herself, the mountains almost look fake. I would love to be able to see this amazing natural wonder up close.
Some more eye candy and information.
Travertine Pools - Turkey
Beautiful natural turquoise thermal hot springs with a stunning outlook view, what more could you want? Seems like a nice place to bring your family,
I would definitely bring mine.Some
information and more pictures.
ETA: squeezed in one more..
Wish I could fit more.
