Switzerland

Switzerland, a small country in the heart of western Europe, is not only the land of the Alps with some of the highest mountains in Europe (17 peaks above 4,000 m = 13,100 ft above sea level and many more between 2,000 and 4,000 m), it has also a plateau and many lakes.A little Switzerland or also known as Schweiz is a landscape, often of wooded hills. This Romantic aesthetic term is not a geographic category, but was widely used in the 19th century to imply dramatic natural scenic features that would be of interest to tourists. Since it was ambiguous from the very beginning, it was flexibly used in travel writing to imply that a landscape had some features, though on a much smaller scale, which might remind a visitor of Switzerland.

Ulluru,australia

Uluru is a large sandstone rock formation in the southern part of the Northern Territory in central Australia. It lies 335 km (208 mi) south west of the nearest large town, Alice Springs, 450 km (280 mi) by road.It is one of Australia's most recognisable natural landmarks.

The sandstone formation stands 348 m (1,142 ft) high, rising 863 m (2,831 ft) above sea level with most of its bulk lying underground, and has a total circumference of 9.4 km (5.8 mi).Both Uluru and the nearby Kata Tjuta formation have great cultural significance for the Aṉangu people, the traditional inhabitants of the area, who lead walking tours to inform visitors about the local flora and fauna, bush foods and the Aboriginal dreamtime stories of the area.

Uluru is notable for appearing to change colour at different times of the day and year, most notably when it glows red at dawn and sunset.

Kata Tjuta, also called Mount Olga or The Olgas, lies 25 km (16 mi) west of Uluru. Special viewing areas with road access and parking have been constructed to give tourists the best views of both sites at dawn and dusk.

Vatnajokull National Park, Iceland

In general, national parks are protected areas which are considered incomparable because of their nature or cultural heritage. The unique qualities of Vatnajökull National Park are primarily its great variety of landscape features, created by the combined forces of rivers, glacial ice, and volcanic and geothermal activity.

Devil`s pool,zambia

Victoria Falls,( the Smoke that Thunders), is a waterfall in southern Africa on the Zambezi River at the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe.It is home to the most Dangerous pool in the world. This pool is formed naturally, near the edge of the falls on Livingstone Island on the Zambian side. When the river flow is at a certain level, usually between September and December, a rock barrier forms an eddy with minimal current, allowing adventurous swimmers to splash around in relative safety a few feet from the point where the water cascades over the falls.

Medenhall ice caves..

Mendenhall ice caves exists only because glaciers are melting,these Ice Caves are inside the glacier, accessible only to those willing to kayak to, and then ice climb over the glacier. However, the glacier is retreating increasingly fast as global warming heats the oceans and temperatures rise.

Hiller lake(pink lake), Western Australia

Lake Hillier is a lake on Middle Island, the largest of the islands and islets that make up the Recherche Archipelago, Western Australia. The most notable feature of the lake is its pink color.scientists have proven the strange pink color is due to the presence of algae which is usually the cause of strange coloration.

The Fairy Pools on the Isle of Skye – Scotland

Fairy pools are in the southeast of Glen Brittle Forest, about two miles from Glen Brittle beach itself. They are part of a stream running off of the Cuillin mountains, full of vividly colored pools of often almost still water which are punctuated by busy waterfalls. It’s best to visit on the day after a small rain shower, on a dry day with some cloud cover. That way the water levels will be topped up but not too urgent, and the cloud cover will mean that the water’s surface does not reflect too much light.

I am damn sure that these pictures of some beautiful and breathtaking places will not let you stay at home!!!!

      You have listed some beautiful spots. I have not traveled outside the continent but hope to one day take an adventure to part of the world such as this. The ice caves look cold but I'm sure they would be worth seeing.
