Natural Wonders You’ve Never Heard Of; Kim Fredericks; Reader’s Digest

Turkey – Göreme National Park and the Rock Sites of Cappadocia

You’ve heard about the Grand Canyon, Mount Everest, and Victoria Falls, but these lesser-known, more remote natural wonders deliver a similar “wow” factor.

Salt flats of Uyuni, Bolivia

From lakes to deserts, Bolivia offers many natural wonders, including the world’s largest salt flat. Set in the southwestern part of the country, the Salar de Uyuni delivers 4,086 square miles of glistening white salt. “Few American travelers ever get to Bolivia, opting for more popular Peru, Chile, and Argentina,” says Rebecca Rhyan, destination specialist, Latin America, for Cox and Kings. “The salt flats are an other-worldly landscape for anyone who enjoys a bit of adventure.” Although the topography is mostly flat, the destination sits on the Altiplano at 11,995 feet above sea level; expect chilly temperatures when the sun goes down. Touring the destination with Cox and Kings includes breakfast in the middle of the salt flat on Pescado (fish island) and overnights in a stylish and luxurious Airstream camper.
