    Although we've seen them plenty, I still can't get over the beauty of the Rockies. We are so fortunate to live in this beautiful part of Canada, every time we go for a hike or a day trip there is something new to see, something new to be in awe of.

    Oh wow there are so many it's hard to choose..

    Machu Picchu was definietly breath taking, and not only the buildings but all the surrouding view was amazing.

    The Iguazu Waterfalls are stunning and with all the rainbows and the huge amounts of water it is pretty dramatic(:

    Puente del Inca was one of the highlights for me in Argentina, the colours are amazing and we were lucky enough to catch it at the beginning of the fall with some snow on it which really emphasized all the beautiful colours Puente del IncaBut the real highlight for me was Torres del Paine - the most beautiful park I've ever seen.. I wish I could go back there someday...Torres del Paine

    I'm a bit limited since I haven't been outside of the U.S. yet, but my favorite dramatic view is in Yellowstone National Park. Gazing into the depths of those colorful (and deadly) pools in the geyser basin is both breathe-taking and humbling.

    Most beautiful "man-made" would be the Taj Mahal and the most beautiful natural beauty would have many contenders. . . from the rocky coast of Maine to the wooded coast of British Columbia to the beaches of Fiji. Many more that can be mentioned.

    As already mentioned, the Grand Canyon National Park is awe inspiring as well as Copper Canyon in Mexico. Have you ever seen Monument Valley at dawn? It too is spectacular.

    Heyran, which means wandering in Persian, is a stunning region, located on the far west of Gilanprovince. Read more about Heyran

    Due to the humidity of Caspian Sea, the place is often foggy throughout the year. It is extremely green with forest-covered mountains. There is also Heyran cable cabin, which connects Astara to Heyran Mountains and passes through all this beautiful scenery. However these are not the only significance of the place.

    HuangshanI've always enjoyed the perpetually misty mountains of Mount Huangshan National Park in the great land of China It is also a UNESCO world heritage site and Five-Star rated by the China Travel Agency. But be warned you will have to have strong legs to tackle the thousands of steep steps going up and down some precarious trails and steps. If you want a list of fantastic places to go for your next holiday look up the UNESCO web site. Original photo is published here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/anthonymaw/15936536920/
