Now, I’m not sure what beautiful means, sine the definition of the word has been interpreted for generatiobs. Nowadays, it’s so subjetive tha I feel confused. Our planet is filled with wonders, natural and manmade alike. I gues beauty need no explanations or motivation, it’s just there – waiting to be appreciated. So, without further ado, here are 10 superb places around the world that might just help understand the word better.
1. Boseong County’s green tea fields, South Jeolla Province, South Korea | Superb Locations Around The World
Boseong County is well known for its green tea products, as its tea plantations account for 40% of Korea’s green tea production. So, whenever you’re drinking the delicious brew, think of this location. Rows upon rows of neatly laid out tea plants make the fields equally visually incredible.
2. Thor’s Well, Cape Perpetua, Oregon
A saltwater fountain propelled by the tide at Cape Perpetua, Thor’s Well sucks the ocean water in and launches it to heights of up to 20 feet. Isn’t out planet marvelous?
3. Mendenhall Ice Caves, Mendenhall Valley, Alaska
Under Mendenhall Glacier lie the ice caves. Hikers must kayak to and climb about the glacier in order to reach them, so this is no place for amateurs. The caves are continuously melting, so they must be visited before they disappear.
4. Lake Natron, Northern Tanzania
A salt lake fed by the Southern Ewaso Ng’iro River, Lake Natron’s waters often reach high levels of alkalinity (with a pH of 9 to 10.5). As a result, very few species can survive the combination of high temperature, alkalinity, and varying salt content. It looks interesting, though.
5. Tsingy de Bemaraha Strict Nature Reserve, Melaky Region, Madagascar
Known as the Stone Forest by some, Tsingy de Bemaraha Strict Nature Reserve is covered in limestone karsts. Lemurs can often be spotted hopping to and from the trees and karsts. Just like in the cartoon TV-series.
6. Mount Roraima Venezuela, Brazil, and Guyana
Mount Roraima borders Venezuela, Brazil, and Guyana, and the cliff sides of this massive plateau are 1,300 feet high. The natural structure was one of the inspirations for Pixar’s Up, and still amazes scientists to this day.
7. Dead Vlei, Namib-Naukluft National Park, Namibia
Dead Vlei is a claypan surrounded by some of the highest sand dunes in the world. The skeletons of the camel thorn trees, which were created when the area dried up, are said to be roughly 900 years old. I wonder how the area used to look.
8. The Crooked Forest, West Pomerania, Poland
Little is known about the origin of the nearly 400 oddly-shaped pines which grow in West Pomerania. The trees are said to have been contorted by humans, but little knowledge exists regarding the methods and motives.
9. Door to Hell, Durweze, Turkmenistan
Burning continuously since lit by Soviet scientists in 1971, the Door to Hell continues to blaze due to the natural gas deposits in the area. The crater, open to the public, has a diameter of 230 feet. But isn’t this a giant waste?
10. Casa del Arbol, Baños, Ecuador
Casa del Arbol is a seismic monitoring station which observes an active stratovolcano, Tungurahua. A swing hangs from a branch of the tree on which Casa del Arbol sits, allowing visitors to tempt fate as they swing over the canyon below. Would you do it?
