The most bizarre natural attractions on earth
Millions of years on this earth have created some of the most unbelievable landscapes in the world. Here’s some of our favourite.
The Wave, Arizona
The sweeping beauty of these sandstone rock formation are found in the Coyote Buttes area of the Arizona Strip in Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness.
Svinafellsjokull glacier, Iceland
Part of the great Vatnajökull Glacier in Skaftafell National Park, this glacier may look daunting but it’s a quite a popular hiking destination.
Fairy Chimneys, Turkey
Folklore has it that fairies in ancient Turkey lived underground, and these distinctive rock formations were the chimneys of their secret houses. Or another theory is that these rock features were formed courtesy of volcanic eruptions and erosions.
Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia
Covering an incredible 10,000 square kilometres, this is the world’s largest salt flats.
Grand Prismatic Spring, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming
While it may seem like a volcano ready to blow, it’s actually the largest hot spring in the United States.
These florescent colours aren’t produced by Photoshop but by nature – the bright yellow of sulphur mixes with the white salt for an outstanding effect.
Zhangye Danxia Landform, China
Geologists believe the same tectonic plates that formed the Himalayas created this colourful sandstone formation and centuries of water erosion completed it.
Puente del Inca, Argentina
In Spanish, Puente del Inca means “The Inca’s Bridge”, an arch created by nature to form a bridge over the Vacas River in Mendoza, Argentina.
