Topic: Top Ten Natural Wonders
« on: December 17, 2009, 04:13 PM »
The list of the top ten natural wonders of the world is very hard to get 100% consensus on because there are so many woderful places on Earth. Our list is one version of the top natural wonders (in no specific order).

 Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon is one of the most spectacular features of the natural world, having been carved out by the Colorado River over millions of years. This immense and intriguing canyon through arid desert 277 miles long and almost 18 miles wide, and more than 1,500m deep.

Great Barrier Reef

Angel Falls in Venezuela is the world's highest free-falling waterfall at 979m (3,230ft), with an uninterrupted drop of 807m (2,648ft).

Angel Falls was officially discovered in 1933 by an American aviator, James Crawford Angel.
Getting to the falls can be tricky and usually involves taking a short flight from Caracus to Canaima and then a boat trip and trek to reach the falls. Alternatively, you could choose to just do an aerial fly-by of the waterfalls.

 Paricutin Volcano

Paricutin Volcano in Mexico literally came from nowhere and emerged as a new volcano starting from a moment when the ground in a farmer's cornfield opened in February, 1943, and lava started flowing out! The lava flows then continued with little interruption until February, 1952. The lava covered two villages with lava, although there were no casualties, and today the top of the church of one of those villages can be seen peeking out of the solidified lava. Many people have climbed the volcano, which stands at a height of 2,800 m.

 Victoria Falls - Zambia/Zimbabwe

One of the world's mightiest falls, Victoria Falls thunders over a 100m-high, 1.5km-long cliff before rushing its enormous flow (120 million gallons of water a minute) into the Batoka Gorge. Victoria Falls creates some of the world's most awesome white water, a spectacular view indeed.

 Niagara Falls

Located on the border between Canada and the USA, the Niagara Falls comprises three separate waterfalls: the Horseshoe Falls (sometimes called the Canadian Falls); the American Falls; and the smaller, adjacent Bridal Veil Falls. It is not the height, but the width and splendor of the falls that takes your breath away.

Gunung Mulu National Park

Gunung Mulu National Park in Borneo contains the most extensive and spectacular cave system in the world.

Many of the caves are illuminated, and visitors can marvel at 600-foot indoor waterfalls. Every evening, when more than a million bats stream from the caves like a dense black cloud, creating an awesome view.
