Last year i was amazed by one awesome photograph cover of National Geographic picturing a giant crystal cave in Mexico.  The cave was accidentally found at a coal mining site in Naica, Chihuahua (A city of where the name of  famous chihuahua dog’s — the dog that paid by Paris Hilton to accompany her everywhere and dressed in silly and stupid clothes — is derived from :p).

PS : for further info of naica, check out http://www.naica.com.mx/english/index.htm

One friend of mine in Wireline was actually came from this city and told me that he’s been to this place, and witness this magical giant crystal himself! (im so envyyyyy!!) Unfortunately though.. the place is now closed for visitors.. And as such.. i soon googling about top 10 amazing places on earth that i still can visit.. (of course..one day).. and here goes the list 🙂 (PS: u should visit these places toooo someday)

  • The Hell’s door – Turkmenistan

The door to hell located at nearby town of Darvaza, Turkmenistan, is a 70 meter crater that has been burning non-stop for .. 35 years!!! It was found in early 1970s when geologist drilled for gas deposits and accidentally uncovered this cavern which causing the ground on top of it collapse and eating all of their equipments & camp.  As it contains poisonous gas, the geologists does not dare to go down and recover their tools. They were hoping the gas will burnt out in several days and they can continue drilling. but nope!! they miscalculated the amount of gas trapped there and till now.. this door to hell still burning..

  • Rotorua, New Zealand

A city in NZ, Rotorua is famous for its geyser and boiling mud pools. This thermal activity caused by Rotorua caldera. A top adventure destination, this city also a heart of Maori culture.

  • Great blue hole of Belize

A deep circle-like cavities found throughout the Bahamas & national waters of Belize, blue holes are often also the entrance gate to cave networks (some up to 14 km length!!).  A heaven for divers who have reported enormous amount of aquatic creatures  (sometimes new species!!), these holes also has chambers filled with stalactites & stalagmites as well (which usually only available at dry caves!!). A must see if you by any chance near Bahamas or Belize 🙂
