Wonders of the World

 1. Lake Maracaibo, Venezuela


                In the Lake Maracaibo region of Venezuela, lightning strikes an average of 300 nights a year. The most lightning with thunder strikes in the world is here. Sometimes after 28 flashes of lightning (thunder) per minute. Another estimate is that the area receives about 250 lightning strikes per square kilometer a year. This type of lightning-thunder is due to the local topography and special characteristic winds. There is almost always a clash of cold and heat winds. It has been a center of attraction for tourists from all over the world for ages.

2. Sahara Desert's Eye


            Sahara's eyes first fell on the eyes of an astronaut from space. In the heart of the Sahara Desert in the African country of Maori Tania, the Sahara has this large blue eye covering an area of about 50 km. In fact, there is no end to the curiosity about this dome-shaped structure made of stone. It has been created by a meteor falling, or a rock rising from the ground, due to the effect of wind erosion etc etc. The Sahara Desert has formed at least 7 million years ago. But no one knows when this eye was made.

3. The Tunnel of Love– Kleven, Ukraine

                Magical, mystical & fascinating are just some of the things used to characterise the ‘Tunnel of Love’ in Kleven. One bit of assurance that remains, amid unpredictable times in this part of the globe, is how breath-taking the tunnel here is. Located about 8 miles from the centre of Kleven, as it made its way to the wood-work plant, the traveling train molded the trees for several years. Myth has it that when walking this luscious green corridor, anyone who makes a wish gets just what they hoped for.

4. Lake Hillier, Middle Island, Australia

                First reported in the Matthew Flinders journals (1802-03), where Flinders found this striking pink lake while ascending the highest peak of the Middle Island. Lake Hillier is still shrouded in mystery, unlike the other pink lakes in the world, including Lake Retba in Senegal, which have had their reasons for life confirmed (Dunaliella salina and pink bacteria known as halobacteria). The only way to see this wonder is by helicopter flight-well worth the trip because of its safe existence!

5. Mt. Maelifell, Iceland

            It's difficult to believe this isn't graphics rendering. Maelifell (Measure hill), the green grass covered volcano, is covered by cold streams and is right next to the Myrdalsjokull glacier.
            Maelifell is a volcano 792 meters high which stands out in a region of black sands. It was once hidden beneath the Myrdalsjokull iceberg, the country's third-largest glacier, but was discovered when, at the end of the last Ice Age, the glacier retreated. This happened 10,000 years ago, roughly.

6. Kamchatka Ice Cave, Russia


            'Dwarf's Wonderland' is also called this magical spot. The caves are beside a volcano and a stream that flows through glacial fields has formed them.
                The right adjective is Surreal, which will be used first when they enter the ice cave near the Mutnovksy Volcano, situated on the Russian Kamchatka Peninsula. There is a transparent ceiling in the ice cave and it was produced over time due to the melting glaciers on the Kamchatka Peninsula. Due to the transparent ice ceiling that allows sunlight to pass through, the vibrant ceiling has an uneven and curved shape.

7. Mount Bromo, Indonesia

            In the plains called the 'Sea of Sand' lies the 7,000-foot volcano. As harmful as it is possible to be. When it's quiet, it's lovely.

            Here, on the island of Java, lies one of the most prominent volcanoes in Indonesia. Its name is Bromo and it is an active volcano: its crater generates smoke and steam indefinitely, and every now and then sporadic eruptions take place (the last one was in 2012). And the volcano's altitude is not that high, just 2392 meters. That's why, as one of the most famous volcanoes, Bromo is visited every day by hundreds of tourists.

            Four more volcanoes are currently located within the Tengger Caldera: Mount Batok (2,475 m), Mount Kursi (2,582 m), Mount Watangan (2,667 m) & Mount Widodaren (2654 m) are located in addition to Bromo, but Bromo is the only active volcano among them. There are many more summits outside the caldera region, one of which is Semeru (3,676 m), the highest mountain on Java Island & also an active volcano.

8. Grand Canyon, USA

                This doesn't need any introduction! The Grand Canyon, in Arizona and Nevada, is one of America's most prominent tourist attractions and a must-do.

                The 1.7-km deep and 16/17 km wide Grand Canyon, both breathtaking and daunting at the same time, is a monument to 2,000 million years of geological history. The strong Colorado River snaking its way across Grand Canyon National Park is almost as seductive as the canyon, enticing tourists to take short guided boat trips or a multiday adventure. To learn about geological history, magnificent prey birds, animals living in the outdoor climate and early inhabitants of the area.  

                This UNESCO World Heritage Site is probably one of the most prominent landmarks in the United States and spans almost 5,000 square kilometers of crumbling canyons, multicoloured rocks, spectacular cliffs & incredible ravines.

9. Angel Falls, Venezuela

                With a total height of 3212 feet (980 meters), Angel Falls in Venezuela is the world's tallest waterfall. This total height involves a single undisturbed drop of 2649 feet (807 meters), plus steep cascades of 565 feet (173 meters) and lesser drops downstream from the main falls.
