Ha Long bay listed among Top 15 amazing rock formations
The Vietnam’s landscape stays at the second place in the rankings after Turkey’s Fairy Chimneys with many strange conical spires.
The website said “This spectacular landscape (Ha Long bay) is dotted with limestone pillars, arches and caves. The rocks have been shaped by the repeated rise and fall of the sea over 500 million years. The bay also includes over 1600 islands and islets, most of them uninhabited.”
Other sceneries listed in the rankings are Eye of the Sahara (Mauritania), the Great Blue Hole (Belize), Moeraki Boulders (New Zealand), Zhangye Danxia (China), Stone Forest (China), Valley of the Moon (Argentina), Wave Rock (Australia), Chocolate Hills (the Philippines), Giant's Causeway (Northern Ireland), Bryce Canyon National Park (Utah), Vermillion Cliffs National Monument (Arizona), Cave of the Crystals (Mexico) and San Andreas Fault (California).
According to BBC’s common introduction, the fifteen astonishing landscapes own amazing beauty and they “hold invaluable clues to Earth’s past and future”./.
