The world is full of beauty and wonder. A natural phenomenon that depicts the power and strength of the world for us more than ever before. These wonders have been praised, sacred, or associated with superstitions. Let’s take a look at some of these wonders.
Speckled Lake in British Columbia, Canada
Khal Khali Lake is considered sacred by the native people, but let’s see why they call it a holy lake. In the summer, the lake’s water evaporates, and small pools with mineral salts remain, each with a different color. These other colors are due to the presence of the same mineral salts. When visiting this region, it is better not to get too close to the native tribes.
Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland
Sixty million years ago, a large volcanic eruption released a large mass of basalt, which, after cooling, mixed and hardened, creating the cracks seen today. There are about 37,000 polygonal columns in this world heritage site. Hence, they are geometrically precise and identical, and in local legend, they are said to have been created by a giant.
Taurus Spring in Oregon, USA
The harsh conditions at the Thor Spring, also known as the Horn of the Fountain, take your tour to a curved pit that draws water into it and then spurts it upward with great force.
Pamukkale in Türkiye
A remarkable UNESCO World Heritage Site in southwestern Turkey in the ruins of the ancient city of Hierapolis, around which a large town was built. Waterfalls of natural springs have been prepared below, which are terraces of white travertine in the form of stunning hot water pools.
Lake Hillier in Western Australia4
This great lake was discovered in 1802 on the largest island of the Rech Archipelago in Western Australia. This lake keeps its pink color throughout the ages and the year. Some scientists attribute the color of this lake to its high salinity and the presence of a species of seaweed known as Donalilla salina and pink bacteria known as halobacteria.
Tianzi Mountains in China
These mountains are located in the northwest of Hunan province in China. These crumbling limestone ridges are covered with glorious greenery often lost in the mist. A cable car takes you up to Huangshi Village, and from there, there are many aerial railways to show you the breathtaking views of Tianzi (Son of the Sky). No wonder this pristine and unique nature inspired the hanging mountains in the movie Avatar.
