The highest waterfall in the world, Angel Falls is located in Venezuela, along the border with Brazil. The waterfall boasts a height of more than 3,200 feet.



It is the only volcano on Europe\'s mainland to have eruped in the past 100 years, but Italy\'s Mount Vesuvius is best known for its eruption in 79 AD. The explosion and its aftermath destroyed the city of Pompeii.


Halong Bay

Because of its abundance of precipitation, most of the islands of Halong Bay are uninhabited. Located in Quang Ninh province, Vietnam, it features thousands of limestone karsts and isles in various sizes and shapes.


El Yunque

Puerto Rico\'s 28,000-acre El Yunque National Forest is the only tropical rain forest in the United States National Forest System.


Grand Canyon

This well-known and frequently visited U.S. National Park runs a mile deep, averages 10 miles wide and was carved out over the past 6 million years.


Mud volcanoes

It is estimated that 300 of the planet\'s estimated 700 mud volcanoes are found in Gobustan, Azerbaijan and the Caspian Sea. In Azerbaijan, eruptions are driven from a deep mud reservoir which is connected to the surface even during dormant periods, when seeping water still shows a deep origin.


Puerto Princesa Underground River

The subterranean river, located in the Philippines, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and winds about 5 miles into the South China Sea.



This 1.7 billion-acre jungle makes up more than half of the rainforests remaining on the planet. The Amazon is situated in nine countries: Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, Suriname and Venezuela.

At 14,690 feet, the Matterhorn is not even the highest mountain in Switzerland, but it is one of the world\'s most photogenic, rising up on four elegant faces to a craggy peak along the Swiss-Italian border.



Indonesia\'s Komodo National Park was founded in 1980 to protect the endangered Komodo dragon. Attacks on humans by Komodo dragons are rare, but the animals have a fearsome reputation because their sharp teeth and poisonous saliva can kill a person within days of a bite.



The Sundarbans delta, located in Bangladesh and West Bengal, India, is home to the largest mangrove forest on the planet. "Sundarban" literally means "beautiful jungle" or "beautiful forest" in the Bengali language.
