The Horsetail Fall
The Horsetail Fall is a seasonal waterfall, located in Yosemite National Park in California, which flows during the winter and early spring. The water drops in two streams that are side by side. The Horsetail phenomenon takes place when the sun, which is setting, sets the waterfall ablaze with reds and oranges, fire-like, falling down the cliffs.

Located at a distance of 112 kilometers on a high hill near river Gambheri in Chittaurgarh, Chittorgarh Fort is considered to be the largest Fort in India. The fort has a long story of courage, sacrifice, determination, and romance. The fort covered an area of over 280 hectares and was built in the seventh century. The massive hilltop is the main reason to visit the fort as it depicts the Rajput culture and values. Initially, the fort had 84 water bodies but only 22 exist today. Forty-percent of the 700 acres is covered with water.
The Waitomo Glowworm Caves are well known for its population of glowworms and is located at Waitomo on the North Island of New Zealand. Arachnocampa Luminosa, are species of glowworms, size of an average mosquito, found in New Zealand exclusively. Millions of these glowworms radiate their luminescent light unmistakably. Rainwater that creates limestone crystals readily enters the cave as the cave was formed on an earthquake fault. Consequently, almost every corner of the wall and the roof is decorated with fragile, sparkling forms.

The Great Blue Hole is the largest natural formation of its kind in the world. It is circular in shape, more than 300 meters across and 125 meters deep. Its waters are crystal clear. It has a layout of conspicuous stalactites, and limestone formation molding its walls and seems to become more complex and intense the deeper one dives. The Great Blue Hole is like a giant pupil in a turquoise sea.

The weed starts growing after the first quarter of the year between April and May staying green during the summer, but changes from orange to pink, and to a flaming red in Autumn. The Red Beach is located at the world’s largest reed marsh and wetland hosting the most complicated ecosystem that can be found.
