The true beauty of nature.
There are so many structures built by nature on this earth, seeing which one has to keep pressing the finger under the teeth. It seems as if Mother Nature has created them with special artistry. Seven such major wonders of nature, which are present in different corners of the earth and which every curious person would like to see once and would also like to research the facts contained in them.
The colorful light Aurora Borealis floating, playing, and dancing in the skies of the regions of the North Pole is one such natural wonder. This wonderful light that touches the supernatural is named after a Roman goddess. It is a wonderful natural phenomenon that occurs at the North Pole of the Earth at night or in the morning, in which green, red and blue light keeps dancing in the sky. And with whose light the whole sky becomes engrossed for a few moments. In the northern hemisphere of the Earth, it can be seen in Alaska, northern parts of Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Sweden, and Finland. Regional people see the presence of ancestor spirits in it; Whereas, according to scientists, this light is produced by the collision of gaseous particles on the Earth’s atmosphere and charged particles coming from the Sun.
The further we move towards the Arctic Circle at the North Pole, the more the intensity of this light increases. Light is constantly changing its shape due to the Earth’s magnetic field. Although it is visible throughout the year, it is more clearly visible in the dark winter skies. The aurora borealis has been observed to extend from 80 km to 640 km. Similarly, Mount Everest, the world’s highest mountain at 8848 meters or 29029 feet in height, is included in the natural wonders.
Situated in the Himalayan region, this mountain is called Sagarmatha in Nepal and Chomolungma in Tibet, which means the divine mother power of the world. It is a very sacred mountain for the regional people. Its extension is in Nepal and Tibet, but its peak falls in the territory of Nepal. This peak is called Mount Everest after the British Surveyor General George Everest. The Himalayas are believed to have originated 50 million years ago from the middle of the ancient Tethys Sea as a result of a collision between the Eurasian and Indian Plates, and its rise continues to this day. Its height is increasing at the rate of 4 mm per year. While this mountain is like a standard dream for climbers, a thrilling enjoyment of its close observation can be enjoyed from the plane. Adventurous tourists trek to its base camp and get a glimpse of its immense splendor from near. Doordarshan of Mount Everest can also be done from any nearby hill station in Nepal.
The Paricutin Volcano, located in Mexico, South America, is also included in the world’s top natural wonders, due to which humans have witnessed its birth and development before them. This cone-shaped volcano is at a height of 2800 meters. It is the youngest volcano in the northern hemisphere. It came into existence in 1943, when it appeared from a maize field. After this it continued to erupt for 9 years and this lava continued to erupt in the year 1952, the last eruption was seen here and now this volcano is calm and is a tourist attraction. At 410 meters above the ground, the hard lava of this volcano is spread over an area of 16 sq km and its volcanic sand is spread over an area of 32 sq km. Its approximately 19 km long circle can be traveled on foot or horseback to its summit, with a trail of sandy beaches and frozen lava flows. The Grand Canyon is a beautiful sight of natural structure located in the US state of Arizona, which is rare elsewhere in the world. 1.83 km deep, 29 km wide and 446 km long, this structure is America’s biggest tourist attraction. It is believed that this valley may have been formed millions of years ago by the flow of the Colorado River.
Its red-colored cliffs amaze because of their amazing beauty, but their depth and size also amaze people. Experts believe that the rocks of this place can reveal many secrets about the Earth’s geological period. It is known that this canyon is surrounded by Grand Canyon National Park, which is one of the first national parks in America. Some people are satisfied with the mere glimpse of it, but healthy and strong people can enjoy walking on the many hiking trails built in it, can also enjoy boating in the river; Whereas the helicopter can include the guidance of this wonderful creation from the sky in the memorable moments of life.
Victoria Falls located in Southern Africa presents a unique example, which is a wonderful structure of nature. This can lead to high and wide other waterfalls. Its width is 1.7 kilometers and height is 108 meters and every minute 500 million liters of water flow from it. Its vastness can be gauged from the fact that it can be seen even from 50 kilometers away. In the local language, it is called Mosi-o-Tunya. Located on the border lines of Zambia and Zimbabwe, this waterfall forms the Zambezi River. It is best viewed from the Zimbabwe side, although it is closer to the Zambian side.
Courageous people reach the shore of its fall in a boat. This waterfall is known for the tiny drops of smoky water rising from it. The view here is especially visible when shimmering rainbows are seen in its watercourses. Its view is especially visible after the rainy season when the amount of water in it is large enough and the weather is also pleasant. Death Valley, located in Eastern California, USA, is also a wonderful wonder of nature. Some call it the Valley of Death. Spread over a vast area of 31 million acres, this valley is the hottest and driest place in North America. Its bottom is the lowest, whose lowest point is 46 meters i.e. 282 feet below sea level. The temperature here has also been measured up to fifty-seven-degree centigrade at its peak.
This valley remains hot because its surface is dominated by red-colored rocks. This surface sends the heat back, but it is not able to exit the valley, due to which the air of the valley becomes extremely hot. The hot air here is surrounded by steep mountain ranges, which trap the heat in the depths of the valley. The Great Barrier Reef is renowned for being the world’s largest and most spectacular coral reef, which is the world’s largest single structure formed by organisms, extending off the northeast coast of Queensland, Australia. It has over 3000 individual reef systems. It is one of the World Heritage-listed sites. It is considered the largest natural wonder of the Earth, which covers an area of 344,400 sq km within a radius of 2600 km and is made up of more than 900 islands. This huge structure can also be seen from the sky. Around 15 hundred species of fish and more than 30 species of whales and dolphins are found around it. These rocks are closely visible with the boat. It offers diving excursions as well as fish, coral, and marine life exposures.
This region is one of the world’s ‘richest’ regions in terms of biodiversity. Although this natural wonder is being hit by the tourist rush and climate change, efforts for its conservation are also going on. The port of Rio de Janeiro, located in Brazil, is the deepest water port. Located in the southeast of Brazil, this natural formation is the largest natural gulf in the world by volume of water, so it is included in the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. It is surrounded by granite mountains and several summits such as Sugar Loaf Mountain, Corcovado Peak, and Tijuca Hills. It is a port formed by the Atlantic Ocean. Its awe-inspiring views can be observed from the celestial route in a helicopter. This port can be seen in so many ways that it appears differently each time and confuses the beholder. The mountains form the entrance to the bay and give it the appearance of a lake.
However, when Portuguese explorers reached here in 1502, they believed that the bay must have been a river and they named it Rio de Janeiro, meaning the river of January, as a mark of respect, for they reached here in January. The traditional way to see this natural wonder is to take a look at it from the summit of the granite peaks. From here, there is a scenic view of the beautiful beach located on the island. Be aware that the tallest statue of Jesus Christ is also located here on the Corcovado peak. In this way, the sights of the diverse beauty in these natural wonders located in different corners of the earth are astonishing. And not only this, but they feel blessed by seeing the wonderful beauty of those artifacts.
