10 Natural Wonders Of The World

1. Serengeti Migration

The Serengeti ecosystem, which extends to southwest Kenya, is found in northern Tanzania. The region is the site of the world’s largest mass movement of terrestrial mammals and one of the most spectacular animal phenomena.

As part of an African safari tour, one million wildebeest and 200,000 zebra move 500 kilometers (310 miles) from the southern Serengeti in Tanzania to the northern Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. The Great Migration is the climax of each safari in Africa and is possibly the greatest natural wonder in the entire globe.

2. Galapagos Islands

 

In the eastern Pacific Ocean, Ecuador owns a small archipelago of volcanic islands known as the Galapagos Islands. The islands, which are located about 1000 kilometers (620 miles) west of South America, are quite secluded and far apart. The archipelago is well known across the world for the distinct island ecology that served as Charles Darwin’s source of inspiration for his Theory of Natural Selection. Joining a boat excursion is the ideal way to experience the magnificent scenery and wildlife.

The most easiest, but frequently more expensive, option is to reserve a Galapagos Islands cruise through a company in your home country. There are numerous businesses that offer the ability to organize tours from Guayaquil, Quito, or Puerto Ayora.

3. Amazon Rainforest

With a total river flow that makes up around one-fifth of the global total, the Amazon River is the greatest river in the world by volume. More than 3,000 different fish species have been identified in the river, and more are continually being found. More than half of the planet’s remaining rainforests are found in the Amazon Rainforest. Its extraordinary biodiversity is due to its size as the greatest tropical rainforest. The Amazon Rainforest is home to one in ten of the world’s known species.

4. Iguazu Falls

Iguaçu Falls, one of the world’s great natural wonders, are located on the border between Brazil and Argentina. Along the Iguazu River, there are 275 falls that make up the waterfall system. Most of the falls are 64 meters (210 feet) or less in height. The Devil’s Throat, a U-shaped waterfall that is 700 meters (2300 feet) long, 150 meters (492 feet) wide, and 82 meters high (269 feet), is the most magnificent of them all.

5. Grand Canyon

One of the top tourist destinations in the US is the Grand Canyon, which is situated in northern Arizona. The Colorado River carved the canyon over the course of several million years. It is 446 km (277 miles) long and reaches a depth of over 1.6 km. Although the Grand Canyon is neither the deepest or longest canyon in the world, its immense size and its intricate and vibrant environment provide visitors with breathtaking views that are unrivaled anywhere else in the world.

6. Great Barrier Reef

At a length of more than 3000 kilometers, the Great Barrier Reef is the world’s biggest system of coral reefs (1,900 miles). It is the largest single structure created by living things and the only reef on Earth that can be seen from space.

Millions of microscopic organisms make up and construct the reef structure. Together with a wide variety of other animals, the Great Barrier Reef is home to green sea turtles, dolphins, whales, sea snakes, and clownfish.

7. Antarctica

Antarctica has the greatest average elevation of all the continents and is, on the whole, the coldest, driest, and windiest continent in the world. Antarctica is technically a desert (the largest on earth), with very little precipitation, even though about 98% of it is covered in ice.

Although the Arctic Ocean covers the north pole region, its relative warmth is transferred through the icepack, making Antarctica colder than the Arctic. This is due to the fact that much of the continent is more than 3 kilometers (2 miles) above sea level. Penguins, blue whales, orcas, and seals are among the water species found in Antarctica.

8. Mount Everest

Mount Everest
Mount Everest is the highest mountain on Earth with a height of 8,848 meters (29,029 feet). It is situated where Nepal and Tibet meet. Climbers of all skill levels are drawn to the world’s tallest mountain. Although Mount Everest has several intrinsic dangers like altitude sickness, weather, and wind, other eight-thousanders like K2 are significantly more difficult to climb. The majority of climbers who pass away during the ascent leave behind their bodies, so it is usual to discover bodies close to popular climbing routes.

9. Ha Long Bay

Ha Long Bay, which is properly translated as “Bay of Descending Dragons,” is a 120-kilometer long bay in north Vietnam. Thousands of islets dot the harbor, each covered in dense jungle growth, creating an amazing seascape of limestone pillars. Some of the islands have large caves and hollow interiors, while others have lakes and some have floating towns of fisherman.

10. Sahara

Much of Northern Africa is covered by the Sahara, the largest scorching desert in the world that is almost as big as the United States. Contrary to common opinion, the Sahara does not consist primarily of enormous sand dunes (known as ergs). The majority of the desert is made up of mostly stony, harsh, and barren plateaus with very little sand. The average annual rainfall in the Sahara is less than three inches. Even in the wettest regions of the Desert, it may only rain twice a week before ceasing for years.
