The Most Beautiful Place Ever.....planet Earth



some credit goes to Knees & elbows on sherdog


Meteor Crater is located in the northern region of the Arizona desert, United States. Approximately 45 miles easy of Flagstaff this massive crater is the handy work of a 50 meter wide meteorite that broke the atmosphere and smashed into our planet sometime around 50, 000 years ago. Although now a desert, this area was once grassy plains dotted with woodlands that ancient beasts like the wholly mammoth and ground sloths would have inhabited.



The Door to Hell

The Door to Hell is the only item on this list that has direct human involvement, however the creation of the Door to Hell certainly wasn’t the intended outcome. The Door to Hell is located in Turkmenistan, close to the town of Darvaza. The name ‘Door to Hell’ comes from the fact that this hole has been burning for over 35 years without stopping! The Door to Hell was initially discovered while drilling for gas deposits but the cavern caved in, took a lot of expensive equipment with it and filled with poisonous gas so it was decided the best course of action would be to burn the gas out – it has still yet to burn out.

Mount Roraima

Mount Roraima is a massive tabletop mountain that is found in Venezuela/Brazil/ Guyana. The side facing Brazil and the side facing Guyana are both vertical cliffs that reach 400 meters in height, whereas the side facing Venezuela is a steep incline and although steep it is accessible. This unique mountain boats a variety of plant life, much of it unique and also creates some of the largest and most spectacular waterfalls in the world.



Socotra

Socotra is a world heritage sight that is located within the Republic of Yemen and is widely considered the most bio-diverse place in the Arabian Sea. This alien land boats some of the most unusual looking plant life found in the world, most of which is unique to Socotra due to its harsh climate. As well as plant life Socotra is home to a host of creatures ranging from spiders to birds and even spectacular coral reefs that are entirely unique to Socotra.

It's bad that I'm looking at pictures and getting butterflies in my stomach because I'm terrified of heights. They are pretty awesome, though. Mount Roraima is my favorite.
