What is the most beautiful place on earth? Well, it depends who we ask. On a planet that is home to pink lakes, vast multicolored hills, verdant rice fields like those in Indonesia, or epic icescapes in Antarctica, it's hard to pick a favourite, right?
The wonders of nature come in all shapes and sizes. From China's Tianzi Mountains to the Verdon Gorge in southeastern France, there are incredible places all over the planet, so a list of must-see natural wonders of the world is unlikely to generate consensus.
Our wonderful planet is home to some extraordinary natural wonders, which have been formed over millions and millions of years due to volcanic action, water and wind erosion and other forces.
Our natural environment has the power to move and inspire, encouraging people to travel to faraway destinations just to catch a glimpse of Mother Nature in action. Do you sign up to see them with us?
There are so many amazing places around the world to see that we couldn't include them all in one list. But these stunning destinations are definitely worth putting at the top of our travel bucket list.
As stated in Lonely Planet's "The Universe: Travel Guide" , these are the wonders of Earth that every visitor should add to their travel list on their journey through the most fascinating (and essential) places on planet Earth.
