The Natural Wonders of the World

William Shakespeare quoted,” One touch of nature makes the whole world kin”, how true was he. Nature has always loved the mankind. It is the mankind which has always tried to play with nature for his needs and convenience. But still the nature beholds a treasure to be explored. These treasures are the natural wonders of the world which are spread all across the universe. Getting bored with my monotonous routine, I and my friends decided to explore the Mother Nature and her wonders.

We started our advent with Aurora Borealis or known as Northern Lights. It is really stunning to see that the lights streaks of light flicker across the Northern Hemisphere. No firework display can be more beautiful than this. There is no right time when the light phenomenon starts. But it is said that chances become brighter as one approaches the magnetic pole. It is a very beautiful sight when the lights dance in the sky appearing as waves across the sky. I tried to click the photographs of the natural wonder but the streak was so fast that every time I used to get a black image.

The Great Barrier Reef, the largest coral reef system is home to a wide variety of Flora and Fauna. Here the nature lover will love bird watching, snorkeling, scuba diving and various watersport activities. It is such a beautiful place to be when you would see the water world around you, 900 islands, 2900 coral reefs and it is the largest ecosystem of the world.  The scuba diving and snorkeling activities will give you opportunity to see and explore the marvel of Mother Nature up close. The boat and cruise tours are also available and even if you take the helicopter tour you would see an amazing view of the Great Barrier Reef.

The Mount Everest, the Highest Mountain on earth, stands at a height of 8844 meter and is still getting higher and higher. This height does not include the snow layer covering. This is the highest spot on the earth’s s surface and is also famous by the name of Chomolungma. The adventure junkie can take a trek or hike to the base of mountain. The best time to visit Mount Everest is the months of October and November when it is not snowing.

The Harbour of Rio de Janeiro is located in a very beautiful setting surrounded by mountains and natural formations. It is also known as the Guanabara Bay. The beautiful peaks which surround it are some of the world famous namely the Corcovado Peak, Sugar Loaf Mountain and the hills of Tijuca. Even the Islands are very beautiful and also support various water sport activities. The soft white sandy beaches can be seen all the time flocked by people who are busy playing volleyball, doing exercise, sunbathing or just taking a stroll along the beach.

The Great Canyon in the Arizona state of United States is a massive natural wonder as it runs 277 miles in length with width ranging from 4 to 18 miles. It is said that no natural feature is so huge and immense in an arid desert as the Grand Canyon National Park. People come here to see the spectacular views of the Unkar Creek. Even some people enjoy the helicopter view to appreciate the vastness of the Canyon.

    About nature and the natural wonders of the world, I’d like to say-

    Each blade of grass has its spot on Earth, whence it draws its life, it’s strength. So is man rooted to the land from which he draws his faith together with his life!
