10 beautiful places you should visit before they disappear

Here are some beautiful places you should visit before they disappear.

The Great Barrier Reef: Natural Wonder of Australia

The Great Barrier Reef is the one and the only gigantic reef system that is built with 2900 individual corals and around 900 islands. These 900 islands are stretching over 2300km and most of those tropical islands are blessed with sun kissed golden sandy beaches. This picturesque Great Barrier Reef is the only living thing that can be seen from the outer space. This marvelous reef system is larger than The Great Wall of China. It is approximately similar to the size of Italy, Germany, Japan or Malaysia. The breathtaking beauty of the Great Barrier Reef makes it a World Heritage site and also named as one of the seven Natural Wonders of the World.

However, the Great Barrier Reef has started to die recently. This natural wonder could be destroyed within the next 100 years.

The drastic change of climate, excessive amount of tourism, illegal fishing around the coral reef, mixing of pesticides and others chemicals in river water with sea water are some of the reasons for this damage.

The Amazon Rainforest

Amazon is the largest rainforest in the world. Global warming, expansion of agriculture could lead to the destruction of the rainforest.

Montana’s Glacier National Park

Once this park was home to more than 150 glaciers. Now, there are only 25 glaciers left at the park and it is potentially at risk of losing all of its glaciers in the next 15 years.

The Dead Sea

The Dead Sea is a salt lake and is gradually shrinking under the heat of the Middle Eastern sun. The Dead Sea could disappear the next 50 years.

Venice, Italy

Global sea level rise may sink Venice.

Venice ‘The Floating City’ has been sinking for years. Venice could sink in as little as 100 years due to climate change.

Floods have recently become more common.

Machu Picchu, Peru

Machu Picchu is home to the ruins of the medieval Inca Empire. The ruins of the Incan Empire attract millions of tourists per year. Uncontrolled development, erosion and more visitors than it can handle could cause to disappear this place off of the face of the earth in the next few years.

The Alps, Europe

Climate change has a strong effect on the Alps. Alps are at a lower altitude than the other Mountains, their glaciers are even more susceptible. Glaciers are quickly disappearing from the Alps.

On average about 3 percent of Alpine glacial ice is lost each year, which means that by 2050 there might not be any more glaciers.

The Taj Mahal, Agra, India

Taj Mahal is India’s most famous tourist attraction.

Each year tens of millions of people come to Agra to see the Taj Mahal.

This site could collapse because of erosion and pollution.
