The Banaue Rice Terraces

 

Mountains carved by man for centuries, mountains with steep abysses of the earth, mountains that look like fairy tale, with hanging woods, with eternal flames, shaped like pyramids, with an incredible range of colors, that create an exemplary work of art. An examples of such landscape is the Banaue Rice Terraces, located in the Republic of the Philippines.

Over hundreds of years in the Philippines, the descendants of the native peoples were responsible for carving Batad Mountains to suit their needs for agricultural production. The result of the activity performed in a manual mode is a massive work: an area of over 10,000 square kilometers of mountains, fully carved agricultural terraces on its slopes in the area of Banaue.

This wonder is found in the municipality in the province Ifugao, Philippines.

Iceland offers unique natural contrasts with the eternal struggle between fire and ice, in areas such as the Fimmvorduhals.

In an area of glaciers and one of the most popular walking routes in the country, there are opening fissures from which the spring washes the snow into a stream.

Four Caves with Blue Waters

 

In Brazil, Italy or Greece, there are examples of caves covered with crystal clear water where the effect of light makes them look like an intense blue hue. In one of them, the Blue Grotto (Grotta Azzurra) in Capri, the sea appears to be lit under water.

1. The Blue Lake Cave, Brazil

The Blue Lake Cave is a cave covered by the waters of a lake. The particularity of the place are its colors and the landscape that seems magical. It is located in the vicinity of Nice, in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul, a city famous for its natural attractions and ecotourism.

2. A cave with blue lake in Greece

I think the images illustrate very well. Melissani is a cave on the island of Cephalonia, northwest of Sami in Greece. While in the external environment, the forest covers the slopes of a mountain that reaches the sea, the coast guard a silent place with natural light and shadow effects and transparency of the water, it is a staging of nature spectacular.

3. The Blue Grotto, Italy

It seems that someone has placed blue lights under water, had the image go through Photoshop. But the reality is that, none of this is necessary. The Blue Grotto is a natural spectacle on the island of Capri as simple as surprising light entering from the outside is refracted into the water in the cave with a blue dramatically effect.


4. A Blue Cenote, Mexico

In Yucatan, Mexico, there vnumerous cavities known as dolines, sinkholes or depressions in karst relief. The Yucatan peninsula is one of the world’s highest number of cenotes . One of the most photogenic is the Dzitnup cenote, which is 2 kilometers from the city of Valladolid, also known as the Blue Cave.

The Stone Desert

 

The sandstone rock formation is only part of an incredible landscape and more extensive modeling for thousands of years by wind. In particular, this area full of swirls and waves of stone are called Coyote Buttes. This is a restricted area that can only get about 20 people a day after the permit process in the administrative area in the state of Arizona.

To discover these landscapes is not easy without some expert guidance, nor is it rare to return after a long walk of 5 miles without being able to find them.

While the wave of Arizona is the most photographed scenery, sandstone swirls are even more capricious in its formation and its “spiral” stripes.

A Steep Valley with 72 Waterfalls in Switzerland

 

A valley in “U” is a steep valley, walled by cliffs giants in high mountain areas. In Switzerland, it is expected that there are many postcard valleys.

But perhaps, few can combine as many elements that make it great as the Lauterbrunnen Valley. In the Lauterbrunnen Valley, there is a total of 72 waterfalls that cascade into it. Some impressive sound for a valley carpeted with alpine meadows and mountain inns in the heart of one of the reserves in Switzerland.

Even among the waterfalls, it includes one of the most impressive of all Europe (Staubbachfall), with a 300-meter drop next to a towering rock wall.

A River of Clear Waters Inhabited by Manatees in Florida

 

The images that you will see do not belong to an aquarium, or to a pool. The water we see is transparent like glass, and also relatively warm by being fed by a spring. What you will see is the Crystal River, located in Florida, USA.

Thanks to its temperate waters in winter, it attracts a number of manatees, or sea cows calls. These gentle herbivores are living in shallow waters in coastal areas from the sea or river and they find this place a paradise for shelter in the cold.

Manatees get deep into the warm waters of Crystal River in winter season and remain quietly feeding until they return to the sea coast in the summer. There are some agencies that offer the possibility of diving among manatees in what today is a natural refuge, an area of Florida that encompasses several islands in the area of Kings Bay.

The Crystal River area, is indeed a paradise for wildlife both in water and on the banks.

The Crack that Allows Pristine Diving Between Two Continents in Iceland

 

The crack of Silfra is the only place where the division of the tectonic plates of Eurasia and America is visible above the ocean surface. The crack is located within the Thingvellir National Park, and is covered with an incredibly transparent water, that leaves anyone speechless to those who dares to experience diving or snorkeling in it.

The incredible clarity of the water in the crack of Silfra is almost frozen and does not exceed 4º C even in summer. This is mostly because it is meltwater from a glacier traveling through a lava field, leading to real natural pools.

Diving in the crack is done with dry suits. The water in these cracks is so pure and clear, that you can drink it at any time.

The crack of Silfra has 3 sections and there are several agencies that offer days of diving at the site. Exploring the crack, you can reach depths of up to 18 meters, slightly driven by a stream caused by groundwater wells.
