Get ready to feast your eyes and open up your imagination on 10 amazing natural sights on our planet. And yes, they’re real… and they’re spectacular.
1. Fly Geyser – Nevada
OK, this geyser just a 2 ½-hour drive from Reno isn’t 100% real, but it was formed by accident. While drilling for sources of geothermal energy in 1964, the minerals rose up into this striking and strange form that you can still admire to this day.
This gorgeous sight has a backstory similar to that of the Fly Geyser. The Door to Hell in Turkmenistan’s Karakum Desert has been burning for over 40 years, thanks to geologists that tried to burn off natural gases discovered when drilling at the site.
You’re familiar with the White Cliffs of Dover, but what about the “White Cliffs of Normandy?” This chalk-white Alabaster Coast stretches out 80 miles and rises with cliffs up to 328 feet high. The result is the formation of unique structures like the arch at Étretat.
Most everyone knows about the Grand Canyon, but Bryce Canyon, sitting over 6,500 feet above sea level, is natural wonder of the world in its own right with its pyramid-like rock formations called “hoodoos.” It's well worth the four-hour drive from Las Vegas to experience.
There’s no need to adjust your settings. The largest salt lake in the world (2,471 acres, to be exact) looks more like a mirror than an actual lake, making incredible photos like this one a possibility.
Looks like it could be part of Superman’s Fortress of Solitude, right? But the surreal beauty of these mineral hot springs in southwest Turkey’s Denizli Province draws so many tourists that access to this wonder is now restricted with hopes that future tourists can admire it for years to come.
