There are places full of magic. We have dreamed of some, many of them are on our list of family trips to do in life. Seeing with our own eyes, the Antelope Canyon, the Australian barrier reef, or Japan's bamboo forests is possible if our adventurous spirit accompanies us, and we organize it conscientiously.
Antelope Canyon, USA
Nestled in the Southwest of the United States, it is one of the world's most visited destinations. It is located near the city of Page, in the north of the state of Arizona. This canyon is within a Navajo indigenous reservation, which gives it an exotic and mysterious touch. It has spectacular and supernatural forms. It is one of the most impressive canyons in the world.
Yuanyang County, China
At the top of a mountain range emerges the city of Old Yuanyang, about 1,570 meters above sea level. Its terraced rice fields are a wonder of nature. They are in a remote location with almost inaccessible access, making it one of the most incredible places on earth. Do not stop visiting it.
Cueva de los Cristales, Mexico
It is one of the rarest places in the world due to its climatic conditions and its environment. In the state of Chihuahua, this cave houses the largest natural crystals in the world. They are made of selenite, and the largest of them measures 12 m and weighs 55 tons. The temperature is extreme in the cave, around 58 degrees with a humidity of between 90 and 99%. Be careful because you will not last more than 10 minutes inside if you are not well equipped.
Playa Escondida, Mexico
If you are more of a beach, this is yours. In the Riviera Nayarit are the Marietas Islands, a small archipelago with paradisiacal landscapes named by UNESCO "Biosphere Reserve." Natural beaches inhabited only by booby birds, dolphins, and humpback whales. This beach was formed by the impact of a bomb during military tests in the last century. Its sand is white, and its water is crystal clear.
The Door to Hell, Turkmenistan
A crater of fire burns in the middle of Turkmenistan's Karakum desert. They say that its glow can be seen from many miles behind. It is 70 meters wide and 30 meters deep. It is still burning due to an accident that occurred when the Soviets were trying to extract its oil and drilled, by mistake, a pocket of natural gas, causing the ground to sink. They decided to set everything on fire to prevent the gas from escaping, but the flames have not yet died down.
From the fire of Turkmenistan to the water of this pool of hot water. It is a natural reserve about 650 meters above sea level. If you dare, you can swim in it and see the Langjökull and Hofsjökull glaciers.
Angel Falls, Venezuela
Angel Falls (979 meters of free fall) is the highest waterfall in the world. Considered a sacred place by the indigenous people, it was declared a World Heritage Site in 1994. It can be seen by plane or by land on one of the excursions that depart from the port of Ucaima. Includes three hours of river navigation and a one-hour walk through the middle of the jungle.
A source of curative hot springs Unesco Heritage. The water has been eroding the land forming impressive deep blue pools. Its name in Turkish, Cotton Castles, gives an idea of this wonder of nature.
Great Barrier Reef, Australia
A large colored reef stretches for 2,600 kilometers. If you like scuba diving, you cannot miss it. Your views are possible from space! Once there, the best beach, Whitehaven Beach, is seven kilometers long and is considered one of the world's best.
Arashiyama Bamboo Forest, Japan
Located on the outskirts of Kyoto, entering this forest is an absolute marvel. You have seen it in photos many times, but nothing like being there and hearing the leaves rustle. It is one of the trips dreamed of by anyone.
