Ten Natural Wonders of the World You Should Visit

  1. Niagara Falls, NY

Niagara Falls is widely regarded as the most well known waterfall on the planet.  The falls stretch from New York all the way to Canada, giving sightseers an endless view of the waterfall.

 

  1. Grand Canyon, AZ 

Forged by glaciers millions of years ago, the Grand Canyon today features red rocky hills that stretch 277 miles.  Whether you hike the mile down into the canyon or simply view it from atop, the sight is unbeatable.

 

  1. Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

Twice as wide and deep as Niagara Falls, Victoria Falls lies along the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia.  The flowing waters can be heard from 24 miles away, so you don’t have to be that close to know that it’s there.

 

  1. Yosemite National Park, CA

Yosemite National Park has all you can ask for; camping sites, beautiful rocky hills that reflect the sunset, and waterfalls that flow throughout the park.  You may even see some daredevils attempt to scale Yosemite’s half dome.

 

  1. Zhangjiajie, China

China’s first national forest park is highlighted by a steep hike where visitors travel across shaky bridges and deep caves.  The view at the top of this hike, however, is well worth it, as you can see the endless forest and clouds below.

 

  1. The Sahara, Africa

The Sahara is the world’s largest desert, spanning across 11 countries.  Its red sands and wavy texture make the Sahara an unforgettable sight, but don’t travel for too long or else you may get lost in sheer vastness.

 

  1. Uluru, Australia

Also known as Ayers Rock, Uluru is located in a vast region of the Australian outback.  The rock is known for beautifully reflecting the sunset, turning it into a bright orange color. 

 

  1. Lake Hillier, Australia

Lake Hillier may be one of the most unique natural wonders of the world.  It is situated just feet from the Indian Ocean, but the waters of Lake Hillier are pink.  Visit Lake Hillier if you want to be baffled, but also amazed.

 

  1. Marble Caves, South America

The Marble Caves located in Patagonia, South America, are one of the most isolated natural wonders of the world.  The caves are only accessible by boat, but the wavy texture of the walls inside are a sight worth seeing. 

 

  1. Cliffs of Moher, Ireland

The Cliffs of Moher are a five mile stretch of 700-foot tall walls which look over the Atlantic Ocean.  The cliffs are one of Ireland’s most popular tourist destinations, due in large part to the backdrop you see when the sea meets the sky.
