Top 10 Natural Wonders of the World

The Top Ten
1 Grand Canyon, Arizona, USA The Grand Canyon in Arizona is a natural formation distinguished by layered bands of red rock, revealing millions of years of geological history in cross-section. Vast in scale, the canyon averages 10 miles across and a mile deep along its 277-mile length. Much of the area is a national park, with Colorado River white-water rapids and sweeping vistas.

The longest canyon on Earth, this is a place like no other. The Canyon can offer a panorama view that you would never forget! It is where the Colorado River has carved through hundreds of layers of solid rock. It is an amazing place!

I haven't been there but I would love to go. It's a beautiful and breathtaking place.

How is it only number 6
Its much better then the barrier reef?

Easily the greatest. I hiked into the Grand Canyon once and it was beautiful

2 Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, Australia

According to most people who have been here, this is the most beautiful place on earth. The GBR is also the largest structure built by organisms on Planet Earth! Sadly it could be gone this century due to tourism and industry.

3 Aurora Borealis/Northern Lights, United States

Alaska isn't the only place you can see an aurora borealis, the territories in the North of Canada also have them as well as some countries in Europe.

I've never seen these lights before. But I believe they are predominantly in Norway, Sweden, Finland, Russia, Canada and Greenland, not the US.
Get it right

Such a sight to see

4 Caño Cristales, Colombia
5 Niagara Falls, Canada

A beautiful waterfall, probably the most beautiful on our planet.

Isn't in in a border between United States and Canada?

I hate to sound like the ugly American here, but Niagara Falls is in the United States AND Canada

6 Pamukkale, Turkey
7 Waitomo Glowworm Caves, New Zealand
8 Amazon Rainforest, South America

This the largest rainforest on Planet Earth, home to 20% of Earth's plant and animal species! It is so amazing and beautiful with hundreds of millions of hectares of tropical paradise full of biodiversity! Sadly, it could be gone this century because of farming and industry.

Arguably the most important item to the environnement on this list. Too bad there isn't much left of these forest, because of deforestation. I hope Brazil will wake up and do something to protect this forest.

So important, so beautiful. More effort is needed to save it.

9 Mt. Everest, Nepal/China

Truly spectacular! Mt. Everest is the highest mountain on Planet Earth! The view from the top is supposed to be unimaginable. This is definitely the heart of Asia!

The most well known mountain in the world and the highest mountain on Earth.

The highest mountain (8848 meters) our planet ever has.

10 Ha Long Bay, Vietnam

The Contenders
