Traveling the world should be a life-changing experience. And there are certainly many different ways to see new things in the world and learn something along the way. Perhaps you’ll witness something that’ll teach you about an intriguing piece of history and, perhaps, you previously knew nothing about that historical place or site. Perhaps you’ll simply learn something about a place in a modern context. Or, perhaps, you’ll simply have your eyes opened to beautiful places in the world. If you’re interested in that final type of travel experience then here are some of the most aesthetically-pleasing places to visit.
Machu Picchu, Peru.
Peru is a beautiful country with a heap of culture and natural beauty to offer. It’s known for its mammoth mountains, of course, and situated above the stunning Sacred Valley is the ancient city of Machu Picchu. It’s well worth a visit and that’s an understatement. Of course, the best way to experience this fantastic and incredibly ancient 15th-century Inca citadel atop a beautiful mountain ridge is to transform your journey to this destination into an experience in itself. You might want to look into the G Adventures Inca Trail because this 4-day trek is amazing. You’re surrounded by beautiful scenery all along the Inca Trail, which is wonderful in itself, but the most awe-inspiring moment is certainly the point at which you reach the Sun Gate and see the lost city of Machu Picchu in all its glory. There are certainly lots of beautiful places in Peru but this ancient piece of culture and history is one of the most integral places to visit whilst you’re there.
Oklahoma, United States.
There are so many beautiful places to see in the United States. With such a vast number of states spanning such a vast piece of land, we’d be here for days discussing all the beautiful places to see in America. As built up as it may be, there are still countless spots of natural beauty in its national parks. The Grand Canyon in Arizona is an awe-inspiring sight to behold, of course, but you might want to see something a little less obvious when visiting America.
A trip to the stunning state of Oklahoma might be just what you’re looking for. The Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge is one of the most unique places to visit in this South Central state. Beneath the marvelous Wichita Mountains is an equally-marvelous patch of land that is home to a wildlife refuge. You’ll see Texas longhorn cattle and perhaps even a few wild prairie dogs. It’s a unique and stunning natural site.
The Isle Of Skye, Scotland.
All of Scotland is beautiful. You should travel through the entire place from top to bottom. Of course, if you don’t have time to do that then you might want to narrow down your travels to the key points. Its major cities, such as Glasgow and Edinburgh (the capital) are beautiful places to visit. They’re unlike any other city in the world. Still, you might want to see something a little off the beaten path. The Fairy Pools on the Isle Of Skye are something that you definitely need to see at some point in your life. You’ll feel as if you’ve stepped into another world; crystal pools and waterfalls of a crisp, vibrant blue look like something out of Lord of the Rings. It’s truly mesmerizing.
