Hunting, Fishing, Cars and Travels!
Warm sunshine, pristine beaches, golden sunsets, towering skylines—these are what typical tourists look for in a vacation. Western people often visit Asia to experience its tropical climate and warm beaches. Asians, on the other hand, visit parts of Europe and America to get a glimpse of famous landmarks or ride snowboards down icy mountains.
These are the common images of tourist destinations. In the vast landscape of the earth lies tourist spots unknown to many and not commonly featured in travel magazines. These destinations appear as challenges to more adventurous folk.
While most people find contentment in basking on the beach, others find satisfaction in working their way to the most remote places on earth. The following are one of the few hidden secrets of nature that offer an exciting and exotic escapade.
One can travel to Tibet and visit Mutuo County in China. It appears to be a unique destination as no roads connect it to the mainland. The Tibetan Autonomous Region houses this small district dubbed as China’s last county. Mutou is deemed as Tibet’s sacred land according to Buddhist scriptures. Tourists and scientists alike will find this area exciting because it is rich with various plant species. This same wildlife blocks the only road successfully built to connect the county to the outside word.
While most people who travel to Nepal want to experience climbing Mount Everest, others prefer taking a glance of Australia’s Macquarie Island. The island was never seen as a travel destination before.
However, a group of travelers to Antarctica dropped by to rest and take some time off from their long voyage. By word of mouth, the island quickly became a tourist and research hotspot. The island is located between Tasmania and Antarctica. It is one of the rare places to see an ophiolite–a part of the earth’s crust that’s been exposed above sea level.
Lastly, people travel to Tibet or the US to experience what it’s like to live in a country that experiences winter. However, a new breed of travelers has set eyes on Antarctica’s Deception Island (DI) to experience extremely low temperatures. The island’s name follows that of an aircraft that crashed on the isle and killed five people. It seems that the travelers don’t mind this story because more people head on to DI to see the remains of Antarctic bases destroyed by volcanoes and swim in the surprisingly warm waters of Pendulum Cove.
