“For Come I may, but Go I must and If men ask you why. May put the blame on the stars and the sun and the white moon and the sky” These are the words of my favorite poem since sixth grade. Anyway So here is a list of places I’d visit the moment I have enough money saved aside and my education is well in place. These are Places in ASIA, I’d visit the moment* I get my passport, some cash, a good camera and permission from my ma 🙂
None of the pictures used are mine, these are not arranged in any order. If you have visited any of these places or are going to, please let me know all about it.
Here it goes:
1, Huanglong and Jiuzhaigou Areas, Northwest part of Sichaun, China.
( Home of the Giant panda and is famous for it’s colorful pools formed because of some scientific something, will tell you what imaginary audience when I visit it! 😛 )
2. Ladakh, India and Kashmir – both Azad Kashmir/ Pakistan occupied Kashmir, Pakistan and Kashmir, India.
Out of all the places I’ve seen it is the single MOST beautiful place on the planet. It’s beautiful. It has everything. The people are beautiful, and the place is spellbinding though the political situation there isn’t very inviting.
that’s Pahalgam, the river lidder
The Kashmir Valley
3. Putorana Plateau, Central siberian plateau, Russia
Putorana translates to the country of lakes with steep banks, and is famous for it’s siberian traps.
4. Mount Sanqing, China.
It is a renowned taoist sacred mountain and is absolutely gorgeous.
5. Palawan Islands, Philippines is UNREAL!
6. Sundarbans, Bangladesh and India.
It is the largest single block of tidal halophytic mangrove ( google it! )forest in the world. I’ve read a about it and It isn’t very touristy but it’s something which is far beyond our imagination. These areas haven’t been explored extensively due to their ever-changing scenarios. also it’s the home of the famous Bengal tiger.
( Amitav Ghosh has also written a brilliant book – The hungry tide, which is set in this region. )
The Sundarbans Delta- spread across Bangladesh and India
7. Saryarka Steppe and Lakes, Kazakhstan.
Unexplored and gorgeous.
8. Ölüdeniz( the blue lagoon) and the butterfly valley, Turkey-
Turkey is my dream destination. Olives, cheese, Asia, Europe, the sea, the hills. Shizz just got real. 😀
The turquoise coast- The blue lagoon.
the butterfly valley
9.Gobi Desert and Mongolian-Manchurian grassland,Mongolia-
Mongolia is synonymous with the wild, evoking images of seemingly endless steppe wilderness, nomadic herders, Ghengis Khan and the Gobi Desert, and now the glorious grassland
10. Sagarmatha, Nepal.
Sagarmāthā takes its name from the Nepalese name for Mount Everest which is located in the very north of the zone within the Sagarmatha National park in the Solu Khumbu district. Sagarmāthā means “the Head in the Great Blue Sky”
11. Kaghan Valley, Pakistan
Here in india, you don’t get to hear a lot about how beautiful Pakistan is. While studying about it I found out about how gorgeous it is and I’m still awestruck. I hope I get to go to half these places.
12. Kinabalu, Malaysia
Mount Kinabalu is also the 20th most prominent mountain
13. Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia and the Valley of geysers
Volcano Polsky Tolbachik
14. Tabbataha Reef, Philippines- is an atoll coral reef and a Natural Marine Park in sulu sea composing of two huge atoll (the North Atoll and South Atoll) and the smaller Jessie Beazley Reef.
15. HaLong bay, Vietnam.
(means “descending dragon bay”) Is exquisite and I’m going there sometime this year !!!
It’s something like the Palawan Islands but less touristy. B|
