Aogashima Volcano, Japan
Aogashima is a small, tropical volcanic island in the Philippine Sea, under the administration of Tokyo. The island itself is a giant volcanic crater, and within that crater there is another, smaller volcano.
Aogashima is still considered an active Class-C volcano though it last erupted in the 1780s. When it last erupted it killed nearly half of the islands population and forced the remaining inhabitants to flee. It took just fifty years for the people to return. Today, some 200 brave villagers live on the island.

Hiller lake(pink lake), Western Australia
This pink lake is a natural phenomenon and not only draw visitors from far and wide but also provide livelihoods to local people.
Pink lakes tend to have a striking colour due to the presence of algae that produces carotenoids, such as Dunaliella Salina, a type of halophile green micro-algae especially found in sea salt fields.
Lake Hillier is a pink-coloured lake on Middle Island, the largest of the islands and islets that make up the Recherche Archipelago, in Western Australia. The lake spans only about 600 meters wide but its rose pink colour is unmistakable

It is covered by a few meters of salt crust, which has an extraordinary flatness with the average altitude variations within one meter over the entire area of the Salar. The large area, clear skies, and the exceptional flatness of the surface make this the worlds largest mirror.
