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 But 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...

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.

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.

In 1985 I drove the narrow two lane road from Tolmezzo to Cortina d'Ampezzo in the north of Italy.  There is now a broader road which does not follow the contour of the land, but instead goes through tunnels and over bridges that straighten the route. The old road was dramatic in every way.  It hung to a sheer rock face and gave barely enough room to meet another car.  It was an area of alpine splendor...albeit with moments of high anxiety.  Looking up, you would see massive Dolomite peaks above the timberline.  Looking down, you would see lush deep green valleys dotted with charming chalets and ending in whitewater streams racing through the chasms.  I would advise anyone with the time to do it, to take off the modern road and take to the old narrow one for views that are incredible.  I have seen many incredible sights since, but none has surpassed the Dolomiti Alps of Italy!

The most breathtaking and dramatically beautiful place I have been is Machu Picchu in Peru. I think the setting of the ancient Inca city is amazing, hidden among mountain peaks and with incredible views of the winding Urubamba River below. The city was built on a kind of plateau, using the beautiful formal stonework construction of the Inca, as befitted their royalty. The rocks were smoothed and fitted perfectly next to each other, without the use of mortar or cement. Machu Picchu is believed to have been a refuge and agricultural outpost for the Inca royalty. It was unknown to most of the world until its discovery in 1911 by British explorer Hiram Bingham.

The second day we were there, we arrived very early to see the sun rise as we climbed up to the Sun Gate. This is a fair distance from Machu Picchu itself and quite a climb, and I took so many pictures as I ascended the path, as the city grew smaller and smaller.  I later realized that I had taken pictures of the same view several times, because each view was so spectacular and its majesty never lessened.

Machu Picchu, in spite of all the tourists, is a magical place, where you can find tremendous serenity and peace, if you take the time to stop, and just watch and listen.  It is not a place to rush through. Take a guided tour first, to get oriented about the place, then go exploring. Take time to notice your feelings and your senses.  We met llamas on the long stairways, and saw condors (a rare sight) soaring over the valley below the city.


Another dramatically beautiful place is Iguazú Falls, on the border between Brazil and Argentina.  This is not just one waterfall. It is a series of falls that cascade over cliffs dividing the Iguazu into the upper and lower sections of the river. Besides the sound and smell of the rushing water, take note of the tropical vegetation and birds that thrive in that area.

The falls offer many views as you walk down a wooden path, wearing your rain poncho because there is a constant spray from the waterfalls. It is best to see the falls from both sides of the border - Argentina's side and Brazil's side.  Most people think the views from Argentina are more spectacular. The entire experience was unforgettable to me.

I suggest that both Machu Picchu and Iguazu Falls, both in South America, be on every traveler's must see list.

The most awe-struck I have ever been is in Kaokoland in Northwest Namibia near the Angolan border (staying at the Okahirongo Elephant Lodge).  The open valley surrounded by towering sand dunes is so vast and so desolate, it's almost maddening, triggering an emotional combo of both wonder and agoraphobia.  You get an appreciation for how far our eyes can actually see when not obstructed by anything.  When you climb up to the top of the dunes, you feel like the only person left on Earth.  Now try that during a sunset while sipping a gin and tonic.   Magic.

Yosemite National ParkTruly breathtaking - get the view from Glacier Point.  You can just sit and absorb the moment.  Many different places to see and hike.  Try to stay in the park - several options available but don't wait until last minute.


Ko Phi Phi LeHave to take a boat from neighboring Ko Phi Phi in Thailand as you cannot stay on island.   Take the cheaper boat where you get to swim in from the backside of the island and crawl through a hole/cave to get to the beach side.

Big Sur Relatively easy to get to - couple hours drive south of San Francisco.  Park in state park lot on east side of PCH (Hwy 1) and walk under road.  But cannot get down to the beach.

I've only really travelled or lived in North America & Europe. But probably the most awe inspiring thing I had seen in my experiences....... Was the sky in the Ukraine. It was so blue and beautiful. I don't know if it is the cold, pollution or what makes it so amazing. But it really caught my attention when I was around the Capitol Kiev one fall a few years back. I've been to about every country in Europe, multiple times. The castles are great, I love the landscape and architecture. But that sky still stays with me. Pictures didn't do it justice.

After seeing all of the other pictures posted I think I'm going to have to add these destinations to my travel list. Then post some pictures of the most beautiful place I've ever seen. The picture of Iguazu falls is amazing by the way. Thanks for sharing!

First, Ijen, the view from the top and the blue crater itself got me stunned. It was so so beautiful.

Second, Kelimutu, the three colors crater lakes. I was up there to catch the sunrise and it was quite foggy that morning. I was waiting for the sun to come out and somehow the wind blew the clouds aways and the scene was like opening gate to welcome the sun. Me and my friends who saw that all were amazed and said, "Waaaaaaa......" at the same time. :D


Third, Flores Island, the scenery and the sunset caught along the way from Ruteng to Labuan Bajo. :)

It's difficult to pick! The Città Alta clouded in mist and viewed from San Vigilio in Bergamo, Italy is very beautiful. So is The Three Sisters in the Blue Mountains National Park, Australia, as is Royal Alcázar of Seville but, with the right weather and early morning light, the drive across The Conor Pass through the Kerry mountains into Dingle is stunning.

For me, Hong Kong is one of the most exquisite places I have visited so far. It is a city of such stunningly beautiful contrast. I love the idea that no matter where you turn, there is something spectacular awaiting you.

Gosh, I've been lucky to see so many! Here are a few favorites:

  1. I love the view across from the Dell'Acqua Paola Fountain in Gianicolo, Rome - I was lucky enough to be there during spring, when showers gave way to a rainbow over the center of the city.
  2. I also love Big Sur, California - the California coast is incredible. Catching a sunset at Pfeiffer State Beach or morning light over the waterfall at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park is a special experience.
  3. Another California favorite, the view of water at Kings Beach and Crystal Bay in Lake Tahoe will stay with me forever. We used our paddeboards to get from the beach to the bay, and the perfectly clear water allowed us to see everything we were gliding over: rocks, fish, etc. So amazing.
  4. Last, I love Hana in Maui, Hawaii. The way the clouds hung over the mountains took my breath away! Molokini crater (snorkeling inside) was also something I will remember forever.

This was a really great question...can't wait to see what others share. Travel is such a special experience!
