We have listed some of the most stunning places in the world. These places must be included in the bucket list of everyone.
The Arashiyama Bamboo Grove is one of Kyoto’s uppermost sights and for good reason: standing among these soaring stalks of bamboo is like being in another world. No picture can capture the feeling of standing in the middle of this sprawling bamboo grove – the whole thing has a intense sense of otherness that is quite unlike that of any usual forest we know of.
You can enter it directly from the main street of Arashiyama, a little to the north of the entrance to Tenryu-ji Temple, but it’s best paired with a visit to that temple (exit the north gate, take a left and you’ll be in the grove in no time). There’s just one main route through the grove, which leads gradually uphill
Just imagine, standing inside an ancient glacier and far and wide you look there are different shades of beautiful blue colors and natural formations. This spectacular phenomenon is a must see for anyone visiting Iceland during wintertime.
Since 2011, this cave has formed in more or less the same location, formed by the flow of a particularly huge glacial river each summer. The light driving through very thick, heavy blue ice is absolutely outstanding to view, and particularly photogenic. The magnificence of the Crystal Cave is breath-taking, with a great cavern-like interior that is large enough to accommodate up to 100 people at a time. Photographs of the Vatnajökull Crystal Cave have feathered their way around the world and even won prizes in major photography competitions. The Crystal Ice Cave tour from Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon is one of the most awe-inspiring must-do experiences in all of Iceland.
Namib Desert, Namibia
The Namib Desert is often denoted to as the world’s oldest desert and has been in presence for some 43 million years, remaining unaffected in its present form for the last 2 million years. The Namib is an enormous expanse of relentlessly moving gravel plains and dunes of all shapes and sizes that stretch along the entire coastline. The most widespread and dominant type of desert sand dune are linear dunes, with crescent shaped dunes common along the coast and clusters of star dunes, such as the towering horseshoe of dunes at Sossusvlei, found in the eastern reaches of the sand sea.
Reptiles such as lizards and geckos, the sand snake and the side-winding adder inhabit this long, narrow wilderness. Smaller still are the scorpions, spiders, fishmoths and beetles that have improved over centuries to survive in the dune dynamics of the desert. Insects practice a swimming motion to travel through the sand under the surface, others dig burrows whilst certain adaptations such as shovel-snouts, protective eyelids and tubular nostrils permit other lizards to live below the surface.
Benagil Sea Cave
Is it worth visiting the famous Benagil Cave in Portugal? Absolutely. Benagil Cave Algarve is a particularly stunning part of the Algarve. My trip to Benagil Cave Portugal was my favourite thing I did while I was in the Algarve. There are a lot of stunning beaches near Lagos but the Benagil Sea Cave is the highlight of the Algarve.
Algar de Benagil, its Portuguese name, is spectacular inside the cave with the sunlight streaming over the roof and the golden sand and beautiful azure waters. It is a natural wonder of the world and wholesome travel inspiration for those who have not been. This part of the world has a lot of rock formations along the coast
Paro Takstang : Bhutan
This small monastery on a cliff in Bhutan where the ‘Second Buddha’ is said to have meditated. Beneath the promontory of rock, and across the chasm from the monastery, the cliff drops a couple of thousand feet to the gorge beneath. Stamped into the exposed cliff face are stone steps; handrails have only lately been added.
In spite of the reservations of people to navigate the scary looking steps, Bhutanese mothers with small babies can be seen moving up the steps with the greatest of ease. The steps lead down into the gorge, which delivers the separation and isolation the Tiger’s Nest has enjoyed for all these centuries.
Plitvice Lakes National Park,
The beauty of the National Park lies in its sixteen lakes, inter-connected by a sequence of waterfalls, and set in deep woodland populated by deer, bears, wolves, boars and rare bird species. The National Park covers a total area of 300 square kilometres, whilst the lakes join together over a distance of eight kilometres.
If you’re unsure about whether or not to visit Plitvice Lakes, take a look at any photo album of the Park and that will confidently sway you! The official Plitvice Lakes website has a eccentric virtual tour that features some truly stunning scenes.
Serengeti National Park : Tanzania
Serengeti has the highest concentration of large mammals on this planet and its famous known for its 2,500 Lions the major concentration found anywhere. The park also has over 518 identified bird species where some of them are Eurasian migrants who are existing in the European winter months from October to April.
Due to the amount to be seen in the reserve it’s recommendable to have three or four day’s safari. If you are involved in photography, the longer you stay the better chances you have to get the ultimate photos.
Glow Warm Caves : Waitomo, Newzealand
World famous and a magnet for both local and overseas visitors, the world-famous Waitomo Glowworm Caves have been directed since 1889 and occupy a high place in the New Zealand vacation wish-list. Gaze in wonder at the thousands of illuminating glowworms above as you glide silently by boat through the glowworm grotto. Many of our current guides are offspring of the Maori chief who originally explored the cave and can share with you the remarkable history of the area.
Meander underground along the Waitomo River and gaze in silence at the myriad of glow worm lights that make up the Glowworm Grotto. As you go in this galaxy of tiny living lights, you’ll instantly experience a serene ambience and be spellbound and intrigued by tiny glowworms that light your way.
Bromo Volcano : East Java, Indonesia.
Looking down the crater of an active volcano is a exciting experience. But Mount Bromo, in Indonesia, is much more than just that.
While it may be comparatively small when measured against other volcanoes in Indonesia, the magnificent Mount Bromo will not dissatisfy with its spectacular views and dramatic landscapes. At 2,392 meters high, Mount Bromo is not amid the tallest of Indonesia’s mountains but its stunning beauty lies in its incredible setting. Located some 4 hours’ drive from Surabaya, the capital city of East Java, Mount Bromo is part of the Bromo-Tengger-Semeru National Park that covers a massive area of 800 square km.
Standing majestically inside the huge caldera of the once ancient Mount Tengger, Mount Bromo is surrounded by a vast stretching sea of volcanic sand that radiate a certain mystical beauty. Mount Bromo and the Tengger area are also the home of the Tengger sub-ethnic group who still preserve their age-old traditions and way of life. Here, you can witness the unique indigenous culture and traditions of the ‘Tenggerese’ plus their rituals and ceremonies.
