Summary
Grand Canyon National Park (The United States of America) - The Grand Canyon, the gorge with the most magnificent scenery of any in the world, narrates to visitors its recollections of the Earth's past activities of the last several hundred million years. The Grand Canyon in northwestern Arizona is a gorge that was carved from the Kaibab and Coconino Plateaus that form part of the larger Colorado Plateau. The canyon is 1600 meters deep, about up to 30 kilometers wide and about 450 kilometers long. The magnificent precipitous landscape of the canyon overwhelms visitors with its power. Mount Huangshan (China) - One of China's leading places of scenic beauty, Mount Huangshan features a plethora of extraordinarily beautiful overhanging cliffs that were scooped out by glacial erosion, and these coupled with ancient Huangshan Pines and the flowing 'sea of clouds' creates an atmosphere evocative of traditional Chinese landscape 'mountain-and-water' paintings. Since ancient times, the Chinese have considered Huangshan to be the most extraordinary mountain in the world. It is situated in the Anhui Province near the lower reaches of the Yangtze River. The bizarre shapes of the peaks of Mount Huangshan are the result of glacial erosion, and their shapes, along with rare Huangshan pines and 'seas of cloud' combine to create a unique landscape.
