most beautiful places in the world

Beautiful mountains, amazing waterbodies, outstanding deserts; indeed our planet is simply amazing. Whiles we cannot pinpoint all mother natures amazing landscapes, we think these awesome places are worth visiting.

Whether you are looking for beaches, mountains, national park or cave you are sure to find a destination below.

1.Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania

Africa’s highest peak seems more striking than a lot of other famous mountains, because it’s an ancient stratovolcano that’s not part of any mountain range. That means the 19,000-foot summit drops down to vast, flat plains on all sides, making it a mirage-like blip on Tanzania’s widespread topography.

2.Arashiyama Bamboo Grove, Japan

Every traveler should experience the ethereal glow and seemingly endless heights of this bamboo grove on the outskirts of Kyoto. The experience even extends beyond the visual realm: In 1996, Japan’s Ministry of the Environment included the sounds here—wood creaking, leaves rustling—as one of the top 100 Soundscapes of Japan.

3 .Capri, Italy

Few parts of the world can claim such a range of natural beauty as Italy, with craggy peaks and verdant hills to turquoise waters lined by white-sand beaches. But the island of Capri easily numbers among the most gorgeous (and most glamorous) spots in the country.

4 .Cappadocia, Turkey

Cappadocia, an area in Turkey where entire cities have been carved into rock, is pretty incredible on its own. But whenever hot air balloons pepper the sky—with many floating up right at sunrise—its beauty level literally skyrockets.

5 .Sequoia National Park, California

This central-Californian park is home to some 8,000 colossal sequoia trees—the gentle giants of the tree world. “General Sherman,” a tree named for the Civil War general, is the hero of these treasured acres: It stands 275 feet tall and 25 feet wide, making it the largest known single-stem tree on the planet.

6 .Palawan, Philippines

With its blue lagoons and limestone cliffs, it’s easy to see why Palawan was voted one of the best islands in the world by our readers. It is also home to the otherworldly Puerto Princesa Subterranean River, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that travels five miles through an underground cave system.

7 .Victoria Falls, Zambia and Zimbabwe

Nothing compares to standing in front of the world’s largest waterfall, which stretches in length for a full mile. Visit between February and May (after the region’s rainy season) for the clearest views of the 500 million liters of water that pour over the falls every 60 seconds.

8.Avenue of the Baobabs, Madagascar

Separated from continental Africa by 250 miles of water, Madagascar is adventure personified. The island nation’s secrets include giant moths, bug-eyed lemurs, and places like the surreal Avenue of the Baobabs, where the centuries-old trees reach heights of nearly 100 feet.

9. Namaqualand, South Africa

Namaqualand, a region spanning South Africa’s Northern Cape Province and the Namibian border, is known for its wildflowers, which usually bloom in the desert around August and September. Even if you miss that colorful window, the evergreen plants and mountains looming in the distance—not to mention the occasional antelope sighting—make Namaqualand a year-round destination.

10. Vaadhoo Island, Maldives

The beaches at Vaadhoo Island in the Maldives have received their fair share of online swooning, and for good reason. The bioluminescent phytoplankton in the water’s reefs emanate a dazzling blue glow, making it look as though the stars have somehow found their way down to earth for the night—a phenomenon that has aptly become known as the “Sea of Stars.”

11. The Stone Wave, United States

12. Namib Desert, Namibia

Namib, Portuguese Namibe, a cool coastal desert extending for 1,200 miles (1,900 km) along the Atlantic coast of Africa from Namibe (formerly Moçâmedes) in Angola southward across Namibia to the Olifants River in the Western Cape province of South Africa.

13. Pink Lake, Senegal

Lac Rose (meaning Pink Lake) lies north of the Cap Vertpeninsula of Senegal, some 30 km (18 miles) north-east of the capital, Dakar, in northwest Africa.  It is named for its pink waters caused by Dunaliella salina algae and is known for its high salt content, up to 40% in some areas.

14. Abraham Lake, Canada.

Abraham Lake, also known as Lake Abraham, is an artificial lake and Alberta’s largest reservoir. It is located in the “Kootenay Plains area of the Canadian Rockies’ front range”, on the North Saskatchewan River in western Alberta, Canada.

15. Red Beach, Panjin, China.

16. Uyuni Salt Flat, Bolivia

Salar de Uyuni (or “Salar de Tunupa”) is the world’s largest salt flat, or playa, at over 10,000 square kilometres (3,900 sq mi) in area. It is in the Daniel Campos Province in Potosí in southwest Bolivia, near the crest of the Andes at an elevation of 3,656 m (11,995 ft) above sea level. The Salar was formed as a result of transformations between several prehistoric lakes that existed around forty thousand years ago but had all evaporated over time

17. Giant’s Causeway, Ireland.

The Giants Causeway in the far north of Ireland is a legendary place of rare beauty. A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1986, this ‘Land Bridge of the Giants’ attracts thousands of tourists every year and has inspired world-famous works of art, such as the Led Zeppelin’s album cover for Houses of the Holy

18. Dallol volcano, Ethiopia.

Dallol is a unique, terrestrial hydrothermal system around a cinder cone volcano in the Danakil Depression, northeast of the Erta Ale Range in Ethiopia. It is known for its unearthly colors and mineral patterns, and the very acidic fluids that discharge from its hydrothermal springs.

19. Glowworms Caves, New Zealand

The Waitomo Glowworm Caves attraction is a cave at Waitomo on the North Island of New Zealand.
