Valleys have always enchanted us. They are said to be the stepping stone to many ancient civilizations. This is one of the many reasons why valleys have always let that mystifying effect hover in their existence. Some of these valleys are so mysterious that one gets bowled head over heels to visit them again and again. But still the effect lingers for an inconsistent time period. The one discussed here are some of the rare pieces of nature's wonder having either a geological or geographical significance.
Whale Valley: Egypt
The Whale valley in Egypt is located in the desert floor of Cairo in Egypt. This valley gains mass attention due to its fossilized desert floor of whales having legs. Surprised right ! but indeed the whale valley is said to be one of the hotspot for tourists. This valley consists of the remnants of whales with legs which were also believed to be land based animals rather than the ocean dwellers as we know today.
Valley Of Flowers: India
The valley of flowers in the state of Uttarakhand in India is a UNESCO World heritage site. This valley is located in the subterranean of the Himalayan region. The valley of flowers is basically famed for comprising more than 500 species of flowers and is acclaimed for its meadows of indigenous alpine vegetation and enchanting natural beauty. An enthralling safe haven for the rare and endangered species like that of the Asiatic black bear, Snow Leopard and the Brown bear to name a few. There is no human settlement thriving in the national park and grazing in the area is strictly forbidden. An experience of this place feels like heaven.
Vinales Valley: Cuba
Now we move towards the Caribbean sea and take a sneak peek into the island of Cuba. Here in this country one comes across the amazing Vinales valley. This is an area of karsitic depression which means that it is made up of irregular limestone stratas and encompasses mystic wonders as that of fissures, underground sinkholes and caverns. This valley seems to be a total fairyland especially for its rocky escarpments which are true miracles to behold.
La Gran Sabana: Venezuela
Travelling further south one comes across the glorifying beauty of Venezuela also known as the Gran Sabana. This valley in Venezuela is one of the major geological attractions. Why? Well, the answer is the amazing table top mountains also known as the Tepius, lush green vegetation and the rare flora and fauna found here which is nowhere to be found in the world.
These are amazing geological formations which can be seen only in southern Venezuelan region. The Gran Sabana is nestled on a plateau on Mount Roraima which ahs an altitude of 1000 meters above sea level.
Truly, a trip to these valleys is once in a lifetime experience. The solitude of these valleys is really breathtaking and spins an aura of magical charm.
