Natural wonders

(a selection)

The natural wonders of the world never cease to amaze. Many of them remain untouched, untraveled, and unexplored.

Mount Roraima, Venezuela. Mount Roraima is the highest of a chain of plateaus in Southern America. It takes approximately two days to reach the base of the mountain from the closest village of Paraitepui, another day to climb the staircase-like ramp to the top, and another two days to return. Budget some extra time if you want to camp at the top. (Hiking Mount Roraima de exposedplanet)

Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, Iceland. The best thing about the Seljalandsfoss waterfall is that you can hike up, around, and behind it. Just make sure you are prepared to get wet. (One of a Kind de andywon)

Cliffs of Moher, Ireland. The Cliffs of Moher is a natural rocky formation carved by a combination of time, ocean, and weather. In the 1st century BC, an old fort once stood where the Moher tower now is. It is a very popular tourist destination and has often appeared in famous films such as Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. (Cliffs of Moher - Ireland de _ R i c a ® d O _)

Melissani Cave, Kefalonia. Melissani Cave on the island of Kefalonia has a history dating back to Greek mythology. It is said that Melissani was the cave of the nymphs because it is surrounded by trees and forests. (Melissani lake de Elios.k)

Chimney Rock, Nebraska. Chimney Rock is a mountain peak that has eroded over time to create a unique peak. In the past, it helped emigrants on the Oregon Trail find their way as they traveled west. (Chimney Rock NHS de Posnov)

Angel Falls, Venezuela. Angel Falls is the world's highest uninterrupted waterfall. It was named Angel Falls after Jimmie Angel, the first American aviator to fly over the falls. This waterfall inspired Paradise Falls in the Disney animated film, Up. (DSC_8962 Angel Falls de ENT108)
