The Wave, USA
With a name like that, you know the place is not kidding when it comes to natural beauty. But hold on, it has nothing to do with some beach, ocean, or sea. It actually is a natural rock formation that is too beautiful to be real. You know the place is something when you see it dominate the Windows wallpaper for at least a decade or so. The wave is in Arizona, USA, and reaching here is no less than a task. They only allow 20 people per day and reaching this location itself is a lot of work.
Antelope Canyon, USA
The USA sure has a lot of places that are too good to be real. Also, what is up with some unnatural-looking beautiful rocks and Arizona? It is the second place on this list which is in Arizona. Antelope Canyon is a beautiful natural rock formation that will puzzle your mind for a minute through its beauty and the rock formation itself. The place is only a few miles away from The Wave. And it is a total competition, we swear. It can be visited only with the help of organized tour authorities, but surely worth your money.
Marble Caves, Patagonia
The place has the term cave in it. Of course, it’s too beautiful to not visit or ignore. Marble Caves in Patagonia are in the center of a lake and offer some marvelous geographical formations to visit. Nature is surely one of the best creators. And this one is a fine example of the same. The caves have been carved by water for more than 6000 years, which gives the place a look that can be seen nowhere else. It can only be reached by boat so get ready for that too.
Door to Hell, Turkmenistan
Heaven on earth? We bite our tongue.
The place literally looks like a door to hell. But guess what? It also looks like one of the most beautiful places to watch, definitely not to be in, however. It is also known as Daravaza Crater. The crater was formed in 1971 when a cave was collapsed by a natural gas field. The place was set on fire so that methane won’t spread. But to our horror, the place is still burning. But it sure looks beautiful.
Tiger’s Nest Monastery, Bhutan
Enough of rocks and burning pits for now. Let’s take a look at some cliffs now. Tiger’s Nest Monastery or Paro Taktsang in Bhutan is the perfect spot for adventure lovers as well. It is monetary that was constructed in the 17th century at the side of a cliff! However, a fire destroyed most of it in 1998. But the monastery was eventually restored in 2005, and the site is all ready to amaze you once again.
Meteora monasteries set on a mountain top are one of the most preached religious sites in Greece. The place is absolutely stunning and was actually established between the 14th to 19th centuries. 24 monasteries in total were constructed here. However, only six of them are still well at present. The place will surely mesmerize you with its purity, and the views are something that you won’t be forgetting anytime soon.

It is also the airport of the Faroe Islands, and the place is something that you cannot and should not miss.
Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany
If fairytales were real, this would have been a castle for their kings and queens. But that does not change the fact that the castle still looks straight out of a fairytale. It truly is heaven on earth. It was built in 1886, and since then, it has always been a treat to the eyes. The castle is not only stunning to look at from afar, but the overall surrounding of this beauty is equally commendable. A sure visit for the people who love such fantasy-inspired lands.
