Almost unknown to the civilized world till the last century, Auyan Tepui in Venezuela are a reminiscence of a pre-historic world. Known as the ‘Mountain of Evil’ in the local Pemon language, the painfully isolated serene table mountain is like a surreal kingdom between the earth and the sky. Owing to its isolation from the lower savannah landscape, this mystical region is blessed with an incredible animal and plant life and is home to some of the most intriguing species that are found here only. From rugged mountains, world’s largest waterfall, abandoned diamond mines and expansive forests, Auyan Tepui is a perfect place to claim sanctuary in the lap of nature.
The hulks of dead ships and vessels are reminiscent of the ill fate of the shipwrecked sailors, who did not drown in the gurgling waters of the Atlantic Ocean, but perished because of hunger, sun and thirst in the unforgiving Namib Desert. Skeleton Coast is one of the most desolate and unarguably the most picturesque coast line in the world, which no sailor will ever want to get estranged on. The cool waves from the ocean and the scorching desert heat create an eerie fog with dead ship hulks casting a haunting shadow over the desert, which has innumerable dark secrets hidden in its huge bosom.
Imagine a desert twelve times the size of the United Kingdom dotted with huge mesmerizing rock formations wherever you look. Watching the colossal rock formations and sand dunes in Al Wadi Al Jadid desert, which lies in the western part of Egypt is a breathtaking and incomparable experience. The desert is high in mineral content which makes the landscape flicker and dazzle in the scorching rays of the sun. The dust storms and gleaming rocks create a simply majestic aura to transform you to another universe.
