5 Must-See Natural Wonders Around the World

When you go on a trip, you should go to places you’ve never been to see things you’ve never experienced before. Natural wonders are probably the biggest reason to go somewhere, even if it involves going out of your way to see them. But there are only so many places you can travel to, so you need to be selective about the specific sites you want to see. Here are five must-see natural wonders around the world.

Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park

Hawai’i is more than beaches and tropical drinks! Volcanoes National Park features walkable trails of varying difficulties where you can witness volcanoes, lava tubes, steaming craters, gorgeously exotic flora and fauna, and more. Going during a cooler time of year is best, but any day will bring its share of wonders.

Grand Canyon National Park

Grand Canyon National Park is truly a one-of-a-kind natural wonder that lives up to the hype. Arizona’s well-known canyon is some 277 miles long, can be as deep as 4,000 feet, and has gloriously colorful rock formations that look amazing any time of day. This beauty looks best during the non-summer months.

Salar de Uyuni

There’s a surprising amount of beauty in bleakness. Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni is an extensive salt flat—one of the world’s largest, extending almost 4,000 square feet. The flat, sitting at the crest of the Andes, was once ancient lakes that dried up and left behind large deposits of brine. Naturally occurring hexagonal formations cover the flat, which is also home to an assortment of astonishing animals, including many species of flamingoes.

Zhangjiajie National Forest Park

No other place looks like China’s Zhangjiajie National Forest Park. The park boasts several towering rock formations, best described as pillars, which can stretch upward to as much as 300 to 400 feet. The lush vegetation further gives the place an unearthly feel. Elevators and cable cars are available to show the park from every possible level.

Great Barrier Reef

Here’s the last of our five must-see natural wonders around the world. Get ready to dive. Seeing the Great Barrier Reef is almost indescribable. More than 2,300 miles long and covering almost 345,000 kilometers, the reef offers endless opportunities for exploration by scuba divers. The reef also makes an incredible subject for underwater photography due to the countless rare and endangered species living there.
