Kawachi Fuji Garden is home to an incredible 150 Wisteria flowering plants spanning 20 different species, a private garden on rural Kyushu Island in southern Japan. The garden is open to the public for only a few months a year. The pastel passageway looks like something straight out of a fairytale when the flowers are in bloom—all you need are roaming unicorns to complete the picture.
In the Buddhist religion, wisteria is a symbol of prayer. The plants can climb as high as 65 feet above ground and can spread 32 feet laterally. The flowers bloom in lavender, violet, pink and white. Visit in late April or early May to experience the full magic of the tunnel. Try to go during the “Fuji Matsuri” (“Wisteria Festival”) when the tunnel is in full bloom.
7. Zhangye Danxia landform, China
Zhangye Danxia Landform in China is just one of those places that are hard to believe really exist. Located in Gansu province, a naturally formed landscape astonishes its visitors with the burst of colors – its streaks of yellow, orange and red to emerald, green and blue make it hard to believe it’s all real. The vast area of intensely colored valleys, waterfalls and natural pillars looks surreal in the pictures, reminding more of a impressionistic painting than a photograph.
8. Solar du Uyuni, Bolivia
The salt is over 10 meters thick in the centre. In the dry season, the salt plains are a completely flat expanse of dry salt, but in the wet season, it is covered with a thin sheet of water that is still drivable. The Uyuni salt deposit is a unique spot on this planet. Anything is possible there and every day is different from the next. A magical place indeed, where God has simply left track of His existence.
9. Meteora Greece
There are 24 monasteries that still stand today, and they overlook the city of Kalambaka. Seeing the impressive architecture of these buildings make you appreciate the patience and hard work of the builders who first brought materials to the top of the cliff by winching up baskets. Thousands of people come from all over to see the rock formations.
10. Caño Cristales, Colombia
One look at this waterfall and you’ll see why travelling to it is a must. The stream falls from a cliff onto the moss, which makes the water fall in the interesting patterns you see.
11. Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, China
It had been given the name of Zhangjiajie after the name of a small village located within its bounds, and now a popular tourist attraction within the park and located in the southern part of the Wulingyuan Scenic Zone.This plush national forest is known for its unique geography and rock pillars that have formed as a result of physical erosion.
The famous Avatar Hallelujah mountain was originally named the South Celestial Pillar or Qiankun Column. It is located on the Huangshi Villiage sightseeing route, inside the Yuanjiajie Scenic Area, north of Zhangjiajie National Forest Park.
12. Grand Canyon, Arizona
This American landmark is well-known but has plenty of quiet spots that travellers can escape to and spend time with one of nature’s most incredible wonders.
Don’t let your eyes deceive you, though. While these places may look like something out of a fairytale or sci-fi movie–or even something Photoshopped–we assure you: they’re real. And, best of all, you can visit most of them.
