The scenic beauty of Lake Pukaki is a symbol of the best in New Zealand. With its clear blue waters and picturesque landscape, it’s easy to see why this lake has been such an important tourist destination as well!

One of the most amazing places I’ve been to is Kelimutu, an island with a lot more than just coffee! It’s like Lord of The Rings- you know that feeling when your reading and then suddenly there’s some part about their world or society which really strikes home? Yeah well, this place had those moments for me.
The beautiful and unique color combination of the three lakes that dot Kelimutu volcano is a draw for tourists, who come from all around to experience them. One theory as to how this happens in such an unusual place like on top of one another has been proposed by geologists who believe there are openings within the earth’s crust known simply as fumaroles which emit gas through volcanic activity – giving off different colors depending upon what type it might be!

Havasu Falls is a hidden gem in the Grand Canyon. It’s not well-known and it has an unforgettable view, so you’ll want to visit this natural wonderland!
The Havasu Canyon is part of the Grand Canyon and inhabitants are a small tribe called the Havasupai.

Moraine Lake is a pristine gem in Algonquin Provincial Park. This lake has scenic views and it’s bustling with activities during the summer months, making it my favorite spot to visit!
Moraine Lake, located in Banff National Park is fed by the glaciers and has stunning blue waters.

One of the top attractions in Kenya, Lake Nakuru is a very shallow lake that lies at an altitude of 1930 meters.

Sadly because environmental degradation has led them downhill over population decline due to pollution levels which leaves less food for these beautiful birds.

The Jiuzhaigou Valley is a magical place where you can find sheep, goats, and yaks grazing in the fields. It’s also home to over 1500 waterfalls making it one of China’s most beautiful national parks!
The Jiuzhaigou Valley in China is home to dozens of blue, green, and turquoise-colored lakes that locals call “Haizi.” The numerous colorful bodies were caused by glacier activity.
