The 22 Most Unbelievably Colorful Places On Earth!!

With fall in full swing — let’s remember how much color the nature offers us the rest of the year!

1. Valley of Flowers National Park, India

Along the elevated slopes of the Western Himalayas, you’ll find endless meadows of alpine flowers. This section of park is also home to many
rare animals, such as the Asiatic black bear, snow leopard, and blue sheep.

2. Five Flower Lake, China

Five Flower is one of 118 lakes in the Jiuzhaigou Nature Reserve. This area in particular creates an especially radiant color pallette from
surrounding mineral deposits and incredibly diverse plant life.

3. Hitsujiyama Park, Japan

4. The Great Barrier Reef, Australia

Home to over 1500 species of fish and 600 types of coral, the reef is a getaway for native Australians as well as travelers looking for the ultimate diving experience.

5. Yuanyang County, China

The terraced fields in China create an unpredictable array of layered colors, while also providing rice for millions across the country.

6. Lavender fields in France

These lavender fields are just as fragrant as they are colorful. I can only imagine standing between the endless rows…

7. Lake Hillier in Australia

The bubblegum pink color of Lake Hillier remains a mystery, but unlike other pink lakes around the world, the colors remains year round.
Still…unexplained.

8. Braunwald, Switzerland

The dandelion fields with the backdrop of the Swiss Alps make for one spectacular view.

9. Red Sea Beach, China

In one of the biggest wetlands in the world, the highly alkaline soil allows the bright red suaeda plants to flourish.

The flowers of the Netherlands are world renowned, with the largest garden sprawling with over 7 million flowers.

11. Grand Prismatic Hot Spring, Wyoming

Located in Yellowstone National park, it’s the third largest hot spring in the world, and definitely the most colorful.

12. Cornwall, England

The poppy fields overlooking the Celtic Sea brighten the notoriously rainy UK.

13. Alberta, Canada

Moraine Lake is fed by glacial waters and gets a pretty shade of blue from the rock flour that deposits from erosion.

15. Shark Bay, Australia

The bright red, iron-rich cliffs above the white sands and blue water make Shark Bay a must-see part of the infamous Australian coast.

16. Pamukkale, Turkey

The hot springs in the travertine terraces of Pamukkale are a major tourist attraction in Turkey and have been a calming escape for natives and
travelers for thousands of years.

17. Kawachi Fuji Gardens, Japan

The gardens have 20 dazzling species of the wisteria flower. Strolling through the tunnel is a surreal experience for visitors.

18. Hokkaido, Japan

The Rainbow Field in Japan is a beautiful rolling hill full of neatly planted rows of multicolored flowers. It looks like something out of a Disney movie…

 

19. Vermont in Autumn

The fall foliage in Vermont completely changes the Green Mountain State into layers upon layers of brightly colored forest.

Known as The River of Five Colors, Caño Cristales is a marvel to look at, but due to high sediment levels is not a sustainable home for any species of fish.

In the spring, Namaqualand turns from an arid, barren landscape to a flowering paradise with many flowers not found anywhere else in the world.

22. Juneau, Alaska

The ice caves under the Mendenhall Glacier are a magical place that may not be around much longer. The 12-mile-long glacier has retreated 2 miles
due to climate change since 1958.

Any of these destinations would be a dream come true for a nature lover. I think I have some new entries for my bucket list…

Prince of Wales Hotel, Waterton National Park, Canada

Prince of Wales Hotel, Waterton National Park, Canada

The Prince of Wales Hotel is located in Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta, Canada, overlooking Upper Waterton Lake, near the Canada-United States border. Constructed between 1926 and 1927, the hotel was built by the American Great Northern Railway to lure American tourists north of the border during the prohibition era. The hotel was named after the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII), in a transparent attempt to entice him to stay in the hotel on his 1927 Canadian tour, but the Prince stayed at a nearby ranch instead.

The Prince of Wales Hotel enjoys the distinction of being the sole establishment among Canada’s grand railway hotels to have been built by an American, as opposed to a Canadian, railway company. The hotel was designated a National Historic Site of Canada by the Canadian government in 1995.

Prince_of_Wales_Hotel_Waterton 2The Prince of Wales Hotel was built as an extension to the chain of hotels and chalets built and operated by the Great Northern Railway in Glacier National Park, Montana. Louis Hill, President of the Great Northern Railroad, picked the site for the hotel in 1912. It took until 1926 to get the land leased from the Canadian Government and construction began immediately thereafter.

When Mr. Hill decided to build the hotel, he planned for a building somewhat like the Many Glacier Hotel in Montana. The original plan called for a long three-storied, low roofed building with a central lobby and approximately 300 rooms. As the building progressed, Mr. Hill changed his mind several times so that some parts of the building had to be rebuilt four times. He wanted the building to resemble French or Swiss chalets.  Hill’s final vision stands today, a proud hotel overlooking the township of Waterton; complete with 86 rooms in seven-stories and crowned with a 30-foot bell tower.

All materials and supplies for the construction were shipped via railway to Hill Spring and then transported the last 25 miles by mule team. During construction the building crew faced numerous obstacles including a spring thaw that turned the 25 miles of road into a muddy quagmire and high winds that blew the building off-center twice. The fear of these high winds almost caused the project to be abandoned but construction finally proceeded and the building was completed and officially opened to the public on July 25, 1927.

Occasionally the building will sway slightly when the winds are heavy, but there is no danger because the building was constructed to withstand even the fiercest of gales. The building is anchored to its site by means of large cables installed from its loft, through the structure and into the ground itself.

The hotel is named after the Prince of Wales, the popular Prince Edward, who was later to become King Edward VIII. He was admired and adored worldwide, even after his abdication of the British Throne in 1936 when he chose to marry a commoner from America. The hotel was designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1992 with Plaque status granted in 1995 and was highlighted in the 2008 National Geographic™ Crown of the Continent Geotourism Map Guide.

The Prince of Wales Hotel is a smoke free, 7-story facility with designated outdoor smoking areas. Check-in time is after 3:00 p.m. and checkout time is 11:00 a.m. All rooms are accessed via stairs and are sold based on view or room size. An antique elevator is available for floors 2 through 4 and requires assistance to operate. There are no ADA-accessible rooms available at Prince of Wales Hotel. The self parking lot is located a short walk from the hotel.
