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.

Turkey – Göreme National Park and the Rock Sites of Cappadocia

 

  • The Kayakapi Premium Caves hotel in Cappadocia, Turkey, ranks 12th globally on TripAdvisor
  • The 43-room hotel, which opened in 2013, is top of the rankings in Turkey, and 12th for service
  • The Kayakapi Premium Caves hotel overlooks the city of Urgup in the Unesco-listed Kayakapi Neighbourhood

It’s Fred Flintstone’s dream destination.

These are the stunning cave pool suites at the Kayakapi Premium Caves hotel in Cappadocia, Turkey – the last word in prehistoric-style glamour and the hotel that TripAdvisor users say is the best in the country.

The caves were used as shelters and houses from the ninth century right through to 1961, but now they’re luxurious lodgings that come with plunge pools, air conditioning, iPhone docking stations, Wi-Fi and Nespresso machines.

The hotel’s top room is the ‘Grandiose Cappadocian Pool Mansion’, which comes with not one, but two pools (indoor and outdoor), plus a jaw-dropping view as standard.

But guests who don’t book one of the plunge pool rooms can still go for a dip, courtesy of a 90-square-metre pool that’s open to all (though it is unheated).
