There can never be surprising the glory of great heights that often engulf the viewer at most places across the world. Sometimes, there is more to the heights than just the height alone. Perhaps it is the range of flora and fauna that simply takes the breath away or a combination of both. Listed out are some of the more powerful presentations of heights around the world and most instances, there is more to the heights than considered possible in the normal circumstances.
- Tianzi Mountains, China
Described as the “Son of Heaven”, the Tianzi ranges are made of several high tops that are formed due to the differential erosion of soil. Most of the peaks are high up in the clouds and it is quite a site having the tall peaks sit covered in the early morning mist of the area.
The Tianzi mountain ranges are noted for the light-colored soil and rock composition and often this contrasts with the greens of the leaves and barks of the vegetation. The climate is rather of the cold type with each season still keeping the ranges covered in thick mist.
- Moraine Lake, Canada
This is primarily a lake surrounded by a ring of trees that forms an enclosed lake in the middle. The most striking part of the whole presentation is the rather turquoise blue colored water that covers the bottom of the lake during the full range of seasons. The summer seasons would see the snow-covered peaks that are bordering the lake and coupled with the white clouds that surround the peaks, it is indeed an inviting sight to behold.
That there have been few instances of people taking to fishing in the lake would mean that there is not much of a catch to be had. The clear water lake is more of a visual treat than a means of sustenance.
- Son Doong Caves, Vietnam
The Son Doong is a massive cave that is often described as the large cave opening beside the mountain. There is a flow of water from the caves during the particular seasons of the year but the cave is hardly known for the flow of water at any time. The sheer spectacular nature of the presentation of the cave is reason enough for it to be well noticed and well known.
1.Uluru Rock, Australia
The Uluru is known often as the rock of Australia and no more. It is believed that the rock is a few eons old and the aboriginals have been worshiping and holding the rock in veneration for ages. There are no practical restrictions to visiting the Uluru, but local sensitivities must be respected especially during certain times of the year.
Most visits to Australia are not complete without a due pilgrimage to visit the rock all covered in red color. It is the ores of iron that make this color so and the surrounding areas of the country are covered with mines for various precious elements and metals.
